My Green Smoothie

This green smoothie recipe is a must-have in our house.  I make a huge blender-full every morning (or the night before) and we drink it throughout the day.  Smoothies are such a great way to cram in important nutrients that can be hard to get in during the day...especially for little (or big) ones who turn their noses up at the idea of vegetables.  We've been known to get crazy with what we add into smoothies, I think one time we counted over 23 ingredients.  However, that can be daunting to keep up with, so this recipe is tried and true, delicious and simple!

makes 2 adult and 2 kid servings

1 c. water
1 c. O.J.
4-5 kale leaves
handful of spinach
2 Tbsp protein powder
3/4 c. frozen mango
3/4 c. frozen pineapple
1 banana

Blend together in a high power blender, such as a Vita Mix.  Cover any unused smoothie to enjoy it later.
