Fruit n Veggie Smoothie

Each afternoon, when my oldest kiddo gets home from school, I throw together a quick smoothie to hold the kids over until dinnertime. They love it since they get to pick the main fruit used, and I love it because I slip veggies into it that they never know about, hehe!!! They quickly drink it down, and off they go to play until dinner. Its a win win for everyone!! 

I have a Vitamix that I absolutely love. I literally wash and throw entire strawberries into smoothies without worrying about cutting the stems off. Makes life so much easier, hehe!!

1 cup spinach leaves or Kale
1/2 cup strawberries 
1/2 cup ice (if using frozen fruit, you can omit the ice)

Place all ingredients into the blender. Place lid on top and blend on high for about 30 seconds, or until smooth. If using a different blender, you may just need to adjust blending time a bit! Enjoy!

Enjoying their smoothies!!
