Kiwi & Spinach Smoothie
Kiwi & Spinach Smoothie – A healthy green smoothie that actually tastes good! I PROMISE you will never know there is spinach in there!
Thank you so much to all of you who have completed the survey yesterday. If you didn’t get a chance, please go to Thursday Things to take it. It will take 2 minutes, and you get to tell me more about what you like and want to see here!
So a green smoothie. Never in a million years did I think I would be posting about one. I saw them on other blogs, and other recipe sites, and thought not a chance! They all said you couldn’t taste the spinach, but I didn’t believe it. Well, as the ultimate skeptic, I am here to tell you that you can’t taste the spinach!
This particular smoothie uses kiwi and bananas for the fruit. You have to trust me when I say this tastes exactly like a kiwi. You can’t even taste the banana in there, it is 100% kiwi.
A friend shared a recipe for a kiwi and spinach smoothie from her Ninja blender book. I put my own twist on it, to see if I could make it a little healthier, and here is what I came up with. Since this I have tried putting spinach in other smoothies, like this Mixed Berry Smoothie with success as well.
I have to tell you, that my 7 year old can not stand spinach, or any vegetable really. But he actually begs me to put spinach in his smoothies. I will be sharing his all time favorite one next week. It is a great way to get more fruits and veggies into you and your kids! Someone gave me the idea of putting the smoothie in a fun colored cup, and then your kids won’t even know it is green.
I created a fun group on Facebook, and I would love for you to join us! It’s a place where you can share YOUR favorite recipes, ask questions, and see what’s new at Dinners, and Desserts (so that you never miss a new recipe)! If you’d like to check it out, you can request to join HERE.
