Green Smoothie + Tasty Tuesday {Kid Approved Recipe}

My kids are both immensely picky eaters. Unless it’s a strawberry or broccoli, if it has any colour it’s automatically “Eww, gross!”

I’m not ashamed to admit that in order for me to get them to eat their veggies and even fish sometimes I will usually hide it in their meals, for example; I’ve diced carrots, peppers, garlic into tiny pieces and thrown them in when browning the ground beef for their tacos and I’ve used spinach instead of lettuce for the fill ingredients and I’ve cut sole fish into tiny pieces and mixed it with rice. Most recently though, I’ve made a Green Smoothie that was given the thumbs up by my 4-year-old.

Thanks to my new favourite kitchen appliance – Nutri Ninja® | Ninja® Blender System with Auto-iQ™ Technology this Green Smoothie took me literally 5 minutes to make from start to finish and it hit the spot for both my son and I, after my workout.
