We all know about the health benefits of including more spinach to your weekly menus. The problem is that kids usually don’t like it. So, the other day I was thinking about creative ways to include some extra spinach, at least once a week. This smoothie is pure gold, looks attractive and healthy, but still has that distinctive banana & vanilla flavor. Your kids are going to love to, so give it a try!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup baby spinach
  • 2 Tablespoon unsweetened coconut water
  • 1/2 large frozen banana
  • 1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • one  cup unsweetened milk of choice (soy, almond, or oat)
