Green smoothies are to H what lollies are to a lot of kids – he absolutely loves them.
Guaranteed if we walk past a juice bar, he will drag me kicking and screaming until he gets one – he loves to choose the ingredients and it has become his little treat after daycare a couple of times a week.
This one was made up of kale, cucumber, pineapple, and mint. It is lovely and refreshing and not overly green tasting. A good intro to green smoothies if your little one is not used to them.
Watch our little video of H making this smoothie all on his own – and taste testing of course. Click play to watch it here…
