We are definitely “carb-ivores” in this family, as you can tell by our Mac & Cheese and Buffalo Chicken Legs! And we also like to have a healthy helping of meat in our diet. Because of that we needed to start adding more fruits and veggies into our diet. Our toddler is a really picky eater, and I don’t blame her, I also like chicken nuggets and pb&j sandwiches on the regular! But we wanted to make sure that she was getting at least some fruits and vegetables in her diet so we started making green smoothies.
I know, they look weird and green, but honestly they are pretty tasty. It’s the way I make them! And the ingredients I add. I have a recipe below so you can make your own green smoothie at home, without having to pay that fresh smoothie price at your local smoothie shop. And it will also make you not feel so guilty when you decide to carbo-load later because you know you at least had some fruits and veggies during the day!
