School is in session! It’s time to start cleansing your body and amping up the greens. Are you ready to get schooled on how to make the best (kid-approved) green smoothie you’ve ever had?! Take notes, students, class has begun.

First, you you fill your blender with spinach (organic) and water. Fill the blender with spinach and add about a cup of water.

Then, you blend until you reach this frothy perfection.

Refill with spinach.

Next, you grab your veggies (organic). I usually use a carrot and broccoli. If you add broccoli, you’ll want to add some lemon or lime juice to cut the taste… of dirt. Adding a bananer or two will help with taste too. (Tip: using aged fruits and veggies is perfectly acceptable for these super-smoothies!)

Blend again! Lookin’ smooth and green now, right?

Now it’s time to add the sweet stuff. Frozen fruit puts the “smooth” in smoothie! It gives the chill and thrill of sweetness to keep the kiddies (and you) coming back for more. My top frozen fruit picks are strawberries, blueberries, pineapples, or mangos (always organic, of course).

Pulse and blend. Add water if the blender gets stuck. If you’re looking for more of a meal supplement, you could add some vanilla flavored protein powder. I like to keep the blender running for about a minute to make sure all of the chunkiness smooths out.

Serve ’em up and suck ’em down! Make sure your kids get their own dose of “health in a cup”.

This sweet, clean, fresh temptation will have your gut nice and clear in no time! Oh, and by the way, they are Captain America-approved.

Cheers!
