We love smoothies in in our house. What better way to get lots of servings of fruits and veggies in one, and very tasty fell-swoop?!
My kids think it is an ice cream shake, and I further the deception by freezing leftovers in popsicle molds…sneaky Mommy! They beg me for the ‘popsicles’! Now if only I could figure out a way to have these ready to go when school pulls out the food-dye, sugar laden popsicles that send my child’s ADD rocketing through the roof…..sigh! (I think maybe a ‘Grr” would be a better descriptor!)
Today’s recipe was originally inspired by Cara’s Cravings. Enjoy!
