This Peach Kiwi Green Smoothie is the perfect way to eat your spinach! Even the kids will love this one.
Getting your kids to eat green food can be tricky. They aren’t naturally inclined to eat leafy green vegetables. At least MOST kids aren’t. If you’ve got one of those, consider yourself lucky!
Smoothies are a great way to get more greens into your kids’ diet. Green smoothies for the win! This one is creamy, sweet, and delicious!
This Green Smoothie allows them to totally getting all the nutritional benefits without any of the I-don’t-wanna-eat-my-veggies fight they may or may not put up.
Your kids put up a fight, right? Please tell me Meghan’s not the only preschooler out there who needs a little shove to eat her greens.
This version of the Green Smoothie, with peaches and kiwi, is full of vitamin C, which helps our bodies absorb the iron in the spinach.
Recipe Ingredients–What You Need
Just LOOK at all the fresh, nutritious food we are packing in there! Also, I must say, I highly recommend the Vitamix blender for the smoothest smoothies! (affiliate link)
1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk, refrigerated if possible (the canned kind)
Using full-fat coconut milk that’s been refrigerated makes the smoothie incredibly rich and creamy, almost like a milk shake. This works just fine if your coconut milk hasn’t been refrigerated, though, so no worries if you forgot to put it in the fridge. (Been there.)
1 large, ripe banana
A banana adds sweetness without the need for added sugar! Use a frozen banana for an even thicker smoothie.
1 kiwi, peeled
Kiwi adds vitamin C to this smoothie, which helps the iron from the spinach be absorbed.
~10 slices frozen peaches
Frozen peaches make for a thick and creamy smoothie, and also make it easy to use peaches even when they aren’t in season. Peach season is too short to only make this green smoothie recipe in the summer!
1-2 cups baby spinach leaves
Any greens can be substituted here, but baby spinach has a very mild flavor, making this very kid-friendly.
additional unsweetened almond milk or water, if needed
If you’d like a thinner smoothie, add a little extra liquid until it’s the texture of your preference.
If you haven’t introduced your kids (or yourself!) to a green smoothie yet, this one is a great place to start and the perfect excuse to drink a green breakfast! If you have, this is a fun version that tastes as good as it is healthy. Another great recipe for getting more greens is this Pineapple Spinach Smoothie! Another great green smoothie recipe is this Kale Smoothie!
