I am a huge fan of healthy green and nutrient filled smoothies. I have been doing smoothie for my 20 month old, and i usually put some kind of green in there, or an avocado or bunch of carrots and chia seeds and then some frozen fruit. She loves them. So when i came across this smoothie i had to try it out. It is delicious, you can;t even taste the spinach at all.
There are a few alternatives you can do here, instead of the spinach you can use kale, instead of almond milk you could use coconut water, or whole milk. Also instead of yogurt you could just use more milk. I also put chia seeds in all my smoothies they are filled with nutrients and so good for you. Especially if you don’t eat fish a lot. And now with the Pacific Ocean totally contaminated with radiation for over 2 years and still running i have cut down on our fish intake. It is really sad but i don’t trust the fish from the pacific ocean anymore, so we just eat tons of chia seeds around our house.
