Which berry is your favorite?  Toss in a few spinach leaves to add a fresh green to your morning smoothie.  A smoothie is an easy way to sneak ingredients into your child’s diet that they may not normally love on their own.  By adding 4-5 spinach leaves to their smoothie, they gain the nutrition without even realizing it.  The berry flavor hides the evidence!

Instructions
  1. Add your frozen fruit and coconut milk to your blender first.
  2. Blend on low, until frozen fruit is crushed.
  3. Add fresh fruit and spinach leaves to blender.
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Add ice to blender based on preference of smoothie temperature.

We recommend you use at least one frozen fruit in your summer smoothie to make it cold. You can wash your fresh fruit and freeze ahead of time.

    Sounds great . How many portions is this.
    Can one add a protein powder ?

      Judy,

      When I make this for my family it serves my husband and I and our two young sons. I’d say 3 adults. All my smoothies have a base of 1 can of coconut milk and end up making about the same amount of servings.

      And yes! If you have a favorite healthy protein powder, by all means, use it! We use a vanilla one sometimes with this recipe.

    With two bananas and other fruit in this smoothie is this too much sugar? It looks wonderful just wonder about sugar. Keep up the good work.

      Oh, we don’t buy into the low-carb diets. Natural sugars are GOOD sugars, in our opinion. 🙂
