It took me a loooong time to hop on the green smoothie band wagon. For some reason I imagined that it would taste like a wilty salad all blended together. Not too appealing.
Then along came Jim, who absolutely refused to eat his green vegetables. Not wanting him to miss out on all the nutrients from eating greens, I devised a way to incorporate them into some of the foods that he eats every day.
My kids adore smoothies, so it was a no-brainer to add some pureed greens. Helen was a bit taken aback with the color of the smoothie at first (not her usual pretty pink strawberry smoothie), but now she's used to it.
