A great way to jump start the day is with a healthy serving of fresh fruits and veggies, so we’ve been happily vitamixing around here. I thought I’d share a smoothie everyone at my house loves. I have to make it in secret, though, or my picky eater won’t eat it because I’m sneaking in a handful of spinach. Yes, SPINACH! I can get away with it because of the kiwi. One little kiwi turns the entire smoothie green. At least that’s my story (and I’m sticking to it). I PROMISE – you cannot taste the spinach!
Here’s all you need for this smoothie:
1/2 pineapple (with core), chopped into large pieces
2 oranges (peeled)
1 kiwi (peeled)
1 handful spinach
My kids like it cold so I either freeze the pineapple chunks or add a handful of ice as well.
Blend it in your blender until there is no sign of spinach and enjoy!
By the way, we recently made the switch from disposable plastic straws to Stainless Steel Frozen Drink Straws, and I have to tell you, we LOVE them! One less item goes in the trash at our house now. A 4 pack costs $9.95 at Amazon.
Off to make a secret smoothie! Enjoy your day.
