My Favorite Green Smoothie

 

Green smoothies are my favorite breakfast! Its easy, fast, and portable and packed with nutrition!  Its a great way to get your kids to eat items they either don’t like or can’t eat yet. My 2 year old actually likes most greens but has a hard time with chewing spinach raw so this works perfect for me. There are hundreds of variations on smoothies that you can make. I love the fresh flavor of this recipe. And as you can see I do a lot of shopping at Trader Joe’s :)

Ingredients:

Unsweetened Coconut Milk (I prefer the least amount of added sugar as possible)

Baby Spinach

Non fat Greek Yogurt

Frozen pineapple (make sure it is just pineapple, some frozen fruit has added sugars)

Banana

 

 

 

I am not much for measuring! I am usually making this smoothie for myself and my 2 year old. So I take a 12 oz glass and fill it most of the way with the coconut milk, add a couple good size handfuls of spinach, one full banana, a handful of frozen pineapple and a large spoonful of yogurt.

Now its time to drink your smoothie and enjoy the wonderful taste and the fact you are starting your day with lots of nutrition.
