Popeye Smoothie

Smoothies are a great and easy way to incorporate whole foods into your diet.  I would like to share one of our family staples, the Popeye Smoothie.  This is a favorite with the kids and is often served with breakfast.  You will want to make sure you have a strong blender, I use the Vitamix.  If you are looking for a low cost but powerful blender, check out the Ninja.  I also send smoothies to school in the Thermos Funtainer which can be purchased at Target.
