Have a picky eater?

Looking for an easy, kid-friendly way to get more greens into your kids?

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, here is a simple, tasty green smoothie recipe that your kids will love (and you will, too!).

This Green Smoothie recipe comes from Many Paths, One Journey to Health, a cookbook published by the Holistic Moms Network based upon member-submitted, kid-tested recipes.

For a healthy morning or snack, this smoothie delivers a great nutritional punch.  Enjoy!

Green Smoothie (From our Juices and Smoothies Section)

Fresh spinach leaves (1-2 cups)
Orange or apple juice (about 4-5 ounces)
1/2 cup chopped fresh or frozen pineapple
2 fresh or frozen bananas
1/2 cup yogurt (or try coconut milk for a dairy-free version)
Ice cubes

Fill blender with spinach leaves and mash down.  Add juice, pineapple, bananas, and yogurt (or coconut milk).  Blend until smooth.  Add ice cubes to thicken and chill, blend again and serve!
