When I was little my Grandfather used to make us green drink every time we would go to visit. Call us kids crazy but we actually loved it…even though it was packed full of green, healthy otherwise “icky” stuff! A few months ago I pulled out my blender and whipped some up because for some weird reason I was craving that familiar taste of Grandpa’s drink. I kid you not, it is SO GOOD! But, I know you will probably have to try it to believe it…so here is my recipe (makes 1 serving):
- 1/2 C. Alfalfa Sprouts
- 1/2 C. Spinach
- 1/2 Apple
- 1/2 Banana
- 3/4 C. Pineapple Juice
- Ice (enough to make it cold and yummy!)
Just throw it all in a blender and mix it up! And believe me it is good. My 3 year old little girl just LOVES it and uh, she hates lettuce…so don’t tell her what’s in it! =) You can try putting different things in like: strawberries, romaine lettuce, pineapple, peaches etc. Just make it to satisfy your own personal tastes! The recipe I gave is just what I have personally come up with and it tastes good every time!
***Try it now and you can convince your kid it’s green for Halloween not because it’s healthy. ha ha. ***
Let me know if you try it, and if you or your kids like it—I almost 100% guarantee you will!
