healthy choices and healthy snacks. One of my faves are smoothies; so I decided to make a Berry Kale Fruit Smoothie (with spinach). It’s hard getting kids to eat vegetables, so what better way to get them to start eating healthier, than by making a fruit and veggie shake!If you really have trouble getting your children to eat fruits and veggies try giving the smoothie a silly name or serving it with a silly straw. What is great about this recipe is that it has a decent serving size of greens, but because of the black and blue berries it gives the shake a more pleasant color.

This is my favorite shake and I have one almost every morning. I am not big on cooked veggies but I love them raw…. even more…. I love them blended with fruit!

There are so many smoothie recipes I love, so keep a look out for more!

  • Total time:
  • Yield: 4

Directions:

  1. Wash all fresh fruit and veggies
