little sick boy – getting some fruit and veggies
Green smoothies are all the rage these days, and we love them! Its such a great way to get greens into picky eaters diet. There are a million recipes out there, you can experiment the combinations on your own – find what everyone in to house loves, and work in some things they may need.
I made this easy “Green Goblin” recipe for my sick little boy. I focused on Vitamin C, the needs of my little sicky, and keeping it spooky green. Some fruits and vegetables; strawberries or carrot juice, will definitely change the color. This recipe is super simple. Enjoy.

1 cup *Coconut and Almond Milk, Unsweetened (any type milk will do – if you use a sweetened version, skip adding any extra sweetener)
1/2 cup water
2 cups lightly packed dark leafy greens (today I used spinach. Sometimes I use a super greens mix)
– Blend NOW! Lots and lots of high speed, puree setting, blending! Nobody (meaning kids) like chunky greens in their smoothie.
now add fruit
1 cup frozen pineapple bits – high vitamin C (thank you Trader Joe’s for making life a little easier)
1 frozen banana
2 tablespoon honey (subsitute 2 teaspoons agave)
add more water if it gets too thick
Have fun with your own additions and flavor.
We add a scoop of vanilla rice protein, chia seeds as a topper, and Mama likes to add (after serving the kids) some fresh chopped ginger, for a kick and metabolism booster.
*Coconut milk contains lauric acid, antimicrobial lipids and capric acid, which have antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. Yay.
