With the summer heat, a refreshing and healthy smoothie might be the perfect snack after a day of camp or day at the beach. This recipe is from our Healthy Family Recipe columnist, Marissa Martorana who is a South Bay based dietitian.
Crazy Kale Smoothies
Yields: approx. 4, 10 oz cups
Before you dismiss the idea that your kid will never eat kale and spinach, let alone drink it, I dare you to try this recipe! The natural sweetness of pineapple and banana smooth out (no pun intended) any bitter taste raw kale and spinach (and plain yogurt) may have. I have 2 little ones who taste tested both before and after adding a banana, and the banana addition won!
