Green smoothie the kids will love

One of the most rewarding parts of starting my healthy lifestyle has been seeing what a positive impact it’s had on my children. As with anything in life, children follow your example and what could be more gratifying than to see them making wiser choices in the way of fueling their little bodies for growth!!! Knowing my kids are getting incredible nutrients and actually loving what they are consuming makes my heart so happy!!!

This morning I have to share with you one of my favorite little boys and his favorite breakfast juice!!! Little Nicholas belongs to my dear friend, Lauren and she’s always been very health conscious and we’ve always shared our love of cooking, kitchen gadgets and entertaining pieces!!! She sent me a photo this am with her little man enjoying his super healthy breakfast drink! I encourage you to try this with your children and even for yourself!!

She uses the Nutribullet 900 but if you have a Vitamix or any other blender, it will all work well! Here’s the recipe:

1/2 cup fresh spinach
3 heaping Tbsp. fat-free plain yogurt (FAGE is a great brand!)
1 banana
1 Tsp. flaxseed
Cover 3/4 of the ingredients with water and blend! You can also add an ice cube to chill it up a bit!

Cheers to the health of our children!!!
