When we bought my new fave appliance, the BlendTec, I intended to use it for making green drinks. I thought it’d be a good way to get D to consume more greens, not to mention a way to use up all the kale we grew in the garden. It took some experimenting, but we finally have a green drink that tastes great and is full of vitamins (ok, we have 2, but the other one is hard to make because it requires risking life and limb to crack open a fresh coconut).

Here is D enjoying the new recipe!

Best Greens Drink
1 1/2 cup almond milk
1 banana
4 pitted dates
large handful of baby spinach
large handful of kale pieces (center stem removed)
1/4 cup frozen strawberries
1/4 cup frozen blueberries

Blend on “Smoothie” setting (and cover your ears, like D does. That blender can crank!).
