i know many of you have requested josh’s green smoothie recipes over the last few months that he makes for the littles. and finally, i have my act together enough that i got one up on the blog for you!
i snapped a few pictures of the kiddos making one with him last week. they make a green smoothie together almost every day and my kids always devour it. i asked josh to share the recipe in his own words, so here it is!
2-4 large kale leaves (depending on the size)
1 cup of pineapple (or about 1/5th of an entire pineapple after you remove the skin and core)
1 green apple
6 ice cubes
1 cup of vanilla unsweetened almond milk
Vitamin powder (Optional)
Protein powder (Optional)
-The riper the fruit (like the banana) the better since it makes the smoothie taste sweeter.
-Don’t forget to wash the fruit and kale leaves! I also cut out the kale stems and just use the leaves.
-A key ingredient is the unsweetened vanilla almond milk. It really helps make the smoothie the right consistency. Try adding more or less to make it thinner or thicker.
-It’s not necessary, but I like to add vitamin powder and protein powder to the smoothie just to make sure that they’re getting as much out of it as possible! Besides, getting to add the powders at the end is the kids’ favorite part….except for turning the blender on and off!”
