Super Smoothies

Unbelievably delicious and SO nutritious, this smoothie can completely replace a breakfast or lunch!  Or, enjoy as a mid-day pick-me-up,energizing kind of snack.  We love to make a pitcher full at lunch or  mid-afternoon just before soccer  or baseball practice.

Picky eaters?  This is the perfect smoothie for sneaking in raw spinach or fruits they don’t normally eat, carrots, cabbage, you name it!  The sweetness from all the fruits and vanilla yogurt definitely hide any hint of veggie flavor that even your most suspicious child might be looking for.

Really, you could put anything into a “green” superfood smoothie like this.  Explore.  See what tastes good to you and your family.  Be creative.  Have fun!

This recipe makes one full pitcher, serving 4-6 people depending on serving size.  Divide recipe in half to make smaller batch.

  1. Great recipe! I make one very similar to this for my kids (especially the super picky eater) and also add oats to it (that I soak overnight first). The oats help keep them satiated throughout the morning 🙂

  2. I love this recipe. We make one very similar and it’s is sooo yummy! We love putting our homemade yogurt in it too.

    Thank you for sharing.

  3. Love adding yogurt to our smoothies!

  4. I made this today for all my boys (we’ve had a nasty stomach bug so I want to get some good stuff in them!). I was going to try to put the spinach in without them seeing, but they were so excited to get a smoothie that they wouldn’t leave the kitchen! They ALL love it, even with the spinach! 🙂

  5. so cant wait to make this for my day care kids, sounds very yummy

  6. Love smoothies like this for me and for the kids! If we have any leftover, I pour it into a popsicle mold for healthy frozen snacks that I don’t mind them having anytime.

  7. These also work without the yogurt for the lactose intolerant. Personally I can’t do a lot of soy either so I can’t regularly substitute that.

    Genny- We love to use almond yogurt as my child is celiac and we substitute water for juice or almond milk if out of yogurt.
