The kids can celebrate St. Patrick's Day with their very own St. Patrick's Day green smoothie. The spinach gives this smoothie its intense color, as well as a power-packed nutritional boost. The best part? You can't even taste the spinach in this smoothie! Our kids loved it! It's really a delicious mix of fruits and veggies that will give your little leprechauns a healthy treat this St. Patrick's Day.
How we did it:
- frozen mangos and pineapple (1 cup)
- spinach (1 cup)
- banana (1)
- water (1 cup)
First, we measured all the ingredients together. Our 3-year-old was in charge of peeling the banana while my 4-year-old helped measure the ingredients with me.
We put the spinach in the blender and added the water. Then we turned on the blender for about 30 seconds. (By blending the spinach and water together first, you ensure that the spinach is all blended. There is nothing worse than finding an unblended spinach leaf in your smoothie.)
Next, we added the frozen fruit and the chopped banana and turned on the blender for 1 minute.
After everything is blended you will have enough green smoothie for four little leprechauns. We love drinking ours from mason jars - they are easy to clean and the perfect size for preschool-age kids.
