Hidden Spinach Smoothie

Smoothies are a great way to get fruit and vegetables into your kids.  My smoothie is mostly fruit, but I add a generous handful of spinach so that it includes a vegetable that my kids would not normally eat.  Here is a before and after shot of my smoothie.  The secret to hiding the green color is to add some blueberries or some blackberries.

Recipe:

1 cup apple juice

1/2 a bag organic strawberries (I get mine from Whole Foods)

1 banana

handful of baby spinach (my kids are picky about the spinach we get, so it has to be the organic Kroger brand in the container) or kale

5 blackberries or pour in a little bit of blueberries

Blend all of these ingredients and drink.  The only frozen parts are the strawberries and the berries.  We stopped adding ice to our smoothies since the cold made it too hard to eat.
