Well, I'm a bit excited today because I just got my 3 year old to eat spinach for breakfast, something that she NEVER eats. I've seen various Green Monster Smoothie recipes online and then just kind of whipped one up this morning. So today for AEDM, was the art of getting your kids to eat veggies, even it you have to trick them!
Green Monster Smoothie
1 cup frozen spinach
5 frozen strawberries
I put the spinach in first with the soy milk to get that blended first, then added the strawberries and banana. I just kept added soy milk and apple juice until I got it to the right consistency. I poured it into a fancy little glass for my daughter and told her to it was a funny green monster drink! HOW SILLY! After making it sound fun, she was still a bit skeptical, and said "I want a pink monster drink" but then I started drinking mine and it was good! I exclaimed "MMMMM! STRAWBERRRIES.....and.....BANANA!" Once she gave it a try, she was sold because it was good. And then we wanted Daddy to know about our funny yummy green monster drink. I also fibbed a bit and told her it was green because I put a green apple in it.
Anyways, I still can't believe I actually got her to have SPINACH at breakfast!
Looking a little skeptical here....
but she ended up drinking it all and then taking mine and finishing it for me.
