Its not big news to those who know me that I would rather drink my food than take the time to sit and eat a hearty meal. I am constantly coming up with new smoothie recipes. I am excited to let you know that I am almost finished putting together a smoothie recipe card set! I wanted to give you a little peek at a favorite recipe of mine. This is the BEST smoothie to introduce your family to spinach in a smoothie! The color stays a dark purple because of the berries. I shared this recipe at a "Mom and Me" cooking class and the kids were so scared when they saw all the spinach I had them put into the blender. It was so fun to watch their faces as they each took a sip of their first "spinach smoothie". Most of the kids asked for more! It was fantastic!
