Banana Spinach MuffinsWe’re continuing our GREEN week and made these blender muffins in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. These chocolate chip banana muffins are always a hit with the kids and their friends (and no one even complains that the beautiful green color comes from SPINACH!!). We love using spinach because it adds such great nutritional value without compromising the sweet flavor of the muffin. Spinach is a such great source of fiber that helps fuel growth of healthy gut bacteria.Shamrock ShakeWith St. Paddy’s day coming up, I figured it was time to share all our favorite GREEN foods with you!
A kid-friendly spin on the classic shamrock shake, we use kale + spinach to naturally color our shake green. Our version tastes like a banana milkshake and is naturally sweetened by dates!Green SmoothieAn easy way to get my littles to eat green veggies is by mixing them into smoothies. Great for breakfast or snacks, this green smoothie tastes like a banana shake and is naturally sweetened by dates. My son calls it dinosaur juice, and I'm happy to call it whatever he wants as long as I know he's getting his fill of nutrients!Frozen Mint Lemonade (Limonana)
