Just like Popeye!

We are spending so much time outside that I am not wanting to spend much time inside cooking meals. Our much-enjoyed spinach smoothie has become my last minute meal favorite.

Don't grimace! It is delicious and you would never guess it is full of greens. I used make sure my kids weren't looking when I blended in the spinach, but decided to forgo the covert operation last time and my son watched the entire process and still drank the whole thing! He loves it.

You can find the recipe on our original post, but don't feel like you have to stick to it too closely. I don't measure anything, usually just use pre-washed spinach, and switch up the fruit combinations occasionally. Just add enough fruit to get rid of the green tone and your children (and you!) shouldn't have a problem with it. Here's to no more begging them to eat lettuce . . .

I really have to try putting spinach in our smoothies! I've heard that you can't even taste it (but boy can you see it!). :)
