What a great way to get kids to enjoy a smoothie. Freeze it and call it ice cream. I wonder how long they would believe me?

I read where one lady sold it to her son as "green ice cream"! ;)

I can relate. I had my nephew visiting over the summer. He is 10 and eats very unhealthily at home. My 21 year old son and I totally transformed him for the weeks he was here and the Green Smoothie was the biggest change! I was just sure to put his smoothies in a colored cup so he couldn't see the bright green or sometimes gross color (especially if blueberries were involved! LOL). He asked for one every day!! emoticon

Monday night I went grocery shopping. While standing in the produce section, I decided to go ahead and buy smoothie ingredients. My daughters had Christmas parties happening Tuesday, with lots of sweets. I figured sending them off with a breakfast smoothie high in nutrition was a good plan.

The girls loved them--even my picky eater. They've asked for smoothies every day since. My older daughter watched me make it for the first time today and realized I was adding spinach. She expressed surprise and concern--until I told her it had been there every day. I was just hiding it amongst other things. She willingly drank it again, even though she's now in on the secret.

For me, I've noticed I seem to make better choices at other meals when I start with a smoothie. At least so far!

Over all, I'm pretty pleased. Now if I could just get my husband to drink one... ;)
