Kids in the Kitchen Thursday – Strawberry Spinach Smoothies for your Valentine Sweeties!

I am seriously in LOVE with these kids. (and their lips are pretty cute too!)
Quotes from these kids this session:
“I’m going to take your class every time, I won’t ever stop coming.”
“I wish you were my mom…so you could make these things at home for me.”
“Can we play ‘Butter’ today?”
(its Duck, Duck Goose game, but we say Peanut, Peanut Butter!)
“Oh, my gosh, this is so good!”
“I can’t wait to eat it, I’m SO hungry!!”
My job is all so rewarding when these are the comments I hear during class.  Kids are tasting new foods, opening up their palette to different flavors. They are learning about nutritious foods and why they are good for our bodies.  But, most of all, WE are having fun!
Strawberry Spinach Smoothie 4 Your Sweetie
*This makes about 24oz.  Good amount to split between 2.                                                                                                 

1
banana

10
strawberries (we used some fresh and some frozen)

Handful
of chopped spinach or kale

Splash
of juice (we used a banana/strawberry fruit vegetable juice – just make sure
its 100% juice)

Handful
of ice

Sprinkle
of Stevia or honey, optional (we left it out – kids thought it was sweet enough)

Place
all ingredients into blender.  Blend
well.  Serve immediately.

*If
you prefer a creamier, dairy base smoothie – use milk and leave the ice out.

*You
can also freeze fresh fruit or use store bought frozen fruit to blend without
ice.  Works well if your blender is not
so powerful.

 

 

Happy Valentines Day Kids!
