Green Smoothie Recipe

Makes 1 smoothie (or 2 kid sized) 


1/2 cup vanilla almond, soy, or coconut milk (I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk) 

1 cup frozen pineapple pieces 

1 cup frozen mango chunks 

1 big handful fresh baby spinach 


Variations: 

- add a small container of yogurt for added protein and calcium 

- add a scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder (I don't do this for kids) 

     Add 1 tablespoon of any of the following: 

chia seeds 

- flax seeds 

- natural flaked coconut 

- peanut or almond butter 


Pour milk into a blender. Add pineapple, mango, and spinach. Cover with blender lid and blend to combine. If blender stops turning, add a little more milk. I like to add a couple of ice cubes to make the smoothie very cold and icy.
