Green Smoothies Kids Love

Peeps, seriously, this protein powder that I talked about in this post has revolutionized our world in terms of the kids drinking green smoothies.  My son has always been willing to drink whatever smoothie I make, because I started him on them when he started eating those foods.  My girls are new to this world and haven't been fans.  Until now.  All 3 of them are literally pounding an entire kids cup and asking for more every time.  Here's my favorite recipe for it:

1-1.5 scoops of protein powder
3-4 cups/big handfuls frozen spinach or kale
1/4 c frozen raspberries (mostly to change the color to purple!)
1 banana
2ish cups water
1ish cup of ice

Blend with your blender of choice until it's nice and smooth and there are no green chunks!
Put in a cup with one of these smoothie straws and my kids pound them like it's candy.  I cut them in half for friendly kid sizes, then wash them in the dishwasher and reuse them.
I've got a VitaMix but BlendTec also is great.  I had a KitchenAid before and it really didn't work for these.
