Recipe Story

I'll start off by saying that I'm pretty lucky to have kids who eat their greens. But even if I didn't, I think this Spooky Green Smoothie would be irresistible to them. If you have a kid who avoids eating his or her greens, this drink treat (just in time for Halloween) may just be the answer to your prayers. On a vegetable nutrition ranking, spinach is way up at the top in terms of vitamin and mineral richness. Packed with Vitamins K and A, magnesium and folate -- just to name just a few -- there's no doubt why Popeye ate so much of the stuff. It gives this delicious drink a beautiful green color as well as a mild, sweet flavor that will surprise you. With the added (healthy) sweetness from banana and agave, this smoothie will be the perfect Hallo-WEE-N treat for your kids and their friends this holiday. My hope is that they like it so much, you'll be making it year round!
