Smoothies have to be the easiest way to sneak a lot of healthy ingredients into you child’s diet.  The first thing you child will say after tasting this smoothie is “I cant taste the spinach”!  Don’t make the same mistake I did.  You will want to double or triple this recipe.  Because your child or children will certainly come back for more.   Chef Maria
