Spooky Smoothie

Spooky Smoothie
Weelicious

I'll start off by saying that I'm pretty lucky to have kids who eat their greens. But even if I didn't, I think this Spooky Green Smoothie would be irresistible to them. If you have a kid who avoids eating his or her greens, this drink treat (just in time for Halloween) may just be the answer to your prayers.
On a vegetable nutrition ranking, spinach is way up at the top in terms of vitamin and mineral richness. Packed with vitamins K and A, magnesium, and folate — just to name just a few — there's no doubt why Popeye ate so much of the stuff. It gives this delicious drink a beautiful green color as well as a mild, sweet flavor that will surprise you. With the added (healthy) sweetness from banana and agave, this smoothie will be the perfect Hallo-WEE-n treat for your kids and their friends this holiday. My hope is that they like it so much, you'll be making it year-round!

Smoothie Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Smoothie Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
