Day 4: Banana, Orange and Spinach Smoothie

I have been using a lot of spinach lately. It's not cheap here (well nothing is really cheap here) so I am going to attempt to grow that along with my kale.

I never used to like spinach, I think that's because my Mum used to boil it within an inch of it's life. But now I am using it every day, either in smoothies, wraps or as a part of my main meal.

And the kids are loving it in smoothies too. They don't realise they are having spinach, I just tell them that they are having a green monster smoothie and they devour it quick smart.



Banana Orange and Spinach Smoothie (serves approximately 3 people)

Ingredients:


3 bananas (frozen)
3 oranges
1 cup Low Fat Milk milk
2 handfuls of spinach
1tbs flaxseed
1tbs chia seeds


Blitz in blender and watch the kids devour it! 


This recipe is a part of my 31 Days of Smoothies series.

I am linking up with Jess for IBOT

    1. My kids aren't evening noticing the vege that they are eating at the moment. It is also making dinner time less stressful as I know they are getting a lot of their daily vege intake in their smoothies.

    1. I was hesitant to add the orange, but I had some that were not 100% fresh and needed to be used, so I threw them in and was pleasantly surprised by the results. The orange totally makes this smoothie.

  3. Now that I have discovered that Mia likes milkshakes I have been thinking of making smoothies again and I know she would love this! I might have to give it a go.

  4. Yum, I grow lots of our veggies, bit expensive to start up but over the years has paid for itself over and over
