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.
2 cups chopped pineapple
1.5 cups grapes
2 bananas (peeled)
2 cups spinach
2 tablespoons flax seed (excellent source of Omega-3)
3/4 cup water
handful of ice
BLEND until desired consistency.
