Simple Green Smoothie

Frozen bananas give the smoothie a creamy, naturally sweet base, though you can make this with a fresh banana as long as the other fruit is frozen. It’s easy to add whatever berries or fruit you have on hand, so customize it for your kiddo.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened nondairy milk (or other favorite milk)
  • 1/2 cup frozen banana slices
  • ½ cup frozen pineapple, strawberries, or mango
  • 1 cup loosely packed baby spinach

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients into blender and blend on high for 1 minute or until all the ingredients are combined and smooth.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Use frozen mango cubes instead of banana if needed for an allergy.
  • Use any milk you like, though I find that nondairy plant milks lend the best consistency to smoothies.
  • Use spinach or kale and consider freezing the spinach to cut down on the "green" flavor.
  • Add 1 tablespoon hemp seeds, 1 tablespoon nut or seed butter, or 1/4 cup Greek yogurt for extra healthy fats and protein.
  • Blend really, really well.
  • Serve in a small open cup, a straw cup, or a reusable pouch.
  • Freeze into popsicle molds if you have leftovers or want a fun option.
