I am pretty sure that when I say I have a hard time getting my kids to eat their green vegetables, I am not alone! Am I right? Heck, I have a hard time eating mine! So, what is the answer? Maybe a green smoothie?! That is the answer in this house! My kids LOVE these smoothies! Not only are they getting great benefits from the veggies, but the protein in the shake and vitamins are priceless! There are a lot of 'green' recipes out there, but this one that we can't live without at our house! ENJOY!
