Lately Little Gal hasn't cared for any veggies I give her. Carrots, broccoli, peas, butternut squash...you name it...she takes a few bites and doesn't eat the rest. So one day last week I decide to make a tasty smoothie filled with spinach - a sneaky way to get in those veggies!
I was worried that Little GUY would reject the smoothie since he's a very "visual" eater right now. Ahhh, 3 year olds. So, in order to get Little Guy to like this smoothie too, I named it the Green Ghostbuster Smoothie.
We've been playing Ghostbusters for the past month or so after my Dad pulled out some old Ghostbuster toys for Little Guy. We've also been in the Halloween spirit around our house so it fits in nicely with the time of year and decorations.
As a result, I've been making Healthy Green Ghostbuster Smoothies ALL week for my two little loves! They love them because they're yummy. I love them because it helps them eat veggies in an easy way.
- 1 large banana
- 1 cup fresh spinach (believe me, you can't even taste it)
- 1/2 container vanilla coconut yogurt (or other yogurt you prefer)
- 1/4 cup soy milk (or other milk you prefer)
Blend it all together and eat or drink! Both Little Gal and Little Guy like to eat this smoothie with a spoon. If you like your smoothies a little thinner, then add more soymilk, or even some ice to make it a little frosty.
This makes one smoothie which equals about two perfect portions for two little ones.
Yes, I know it looks VERY green, but it tastes REALLY good.
Little Gal calls them "Moo".
I call them delicious.
Here's another healthy dairy free smoothie we love. What's in your favorite smoothie?
