Monster Smoothie

monstersmoothie

 Get the kids involved in making this smoothie—it's a wonderful way for them to get their serving of vegetables and fruits. The color may throw the kids off at first, but once they taste it, they’ll love it! This smoothie is similar to the kind we use in our Food for Life Kids Health program. With the greens, they’ll get an abundance of calcium, iron, and fiber.

Ingredients

Makes 6 servings

6 cups fresh baby spinach or kale
1 1/2 cups fresh or drained canned pineapple chunks or pears
3 cups green grapes
1 1/2 bananas
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups ice

Directions

Blend all ingredients together.

Add more ice for a thicker smoothie.
