green smoothies

fruit peelings

Last summer I was reading this blog about a girl who makes green smoothies every day. I of course, had to try it. I was very ambitious about what to put in my smoothie and tried many greens I don’t normally eat. As I should have expected the result was not pleasing to my taste buds. So I gave up the green smoothie…

A few days ago I happened back on the same blog from last summer and watched her video about how she makes green smoothies. I wrote down exactly what she puts in them and got everything on the list. The big difference is that I would use mostly fruit and the only green would be baby spinach.

Saturday morning I cut up my fruit and threw everything in the blender. I used a couple packets of stevia to sweeten in and tried a drink. Delicious! On a whim I gave Jasper a drink and he LOVED it. Like, he wanted more right away, finished the entire glass and cried when it was gone…

I’m pretty darn excited about my new smoothies I will be making us. Jasper is not eating the best right now so this will be a great way for him to get a ton of fruit and veggies. I plan on trying some different combinations but I think Jasper is really going to like it. He had his second one yesterday morning and chugged a bunch right down.

Won’t eat your veggies?? Haha…if you only knew what was in that smoothie. Momma for the win!

    I should preface my comment by saying I’ve been a long time reader of your blog. Somehow discovered you a while ago through another blog and regularly check in to see the wonderful pictures you post and to hear about your family. That being said, can you give us the recipe you’re using for these green smoothies, or link us to the post your referred to? I too would love to find a way to add more fruits and veggies into my diet…in as tasty of a way as possible. Thanks!

    Awesome! I love me a good smoothie.

    A friend of mine told me that she also serves her kid the Gardenburger “hotdogs” and nuggets as a way to get him to eat his veggies.
