What's great about it
Here is a fun super hero way of getting your kids to enjoy their greens! It was the winning entry from my last "Win a Vitamix Competition" called "THE HULK" smoothie, submitted by Nicole Valentic who makes it regularly for her 2 twin boys. High in protein to build and repair a young growing body and support a healthy immune system, this beautiful, vibrant and wholesome blend is full of calcium to build strong bones and a good source of quality carbs for energy and omega 3 to support brain function.
100g natural thick yoghurt with live cultures
1/2 cup milk (your choice of organic dairy, soy GMO free, rice, almond, coconut)
1 teaspoon honey
1 handful baby spinach leaves (see notes)
1 teaspoon ground flaxseed (linseed) or whole chia seed
½ cup ice
1. Combine the yoghurt, milk, honey, spinach, banana, flaxseed and ice into a blender.
2. Blend until smooth, green and creamy. I like to use my Vitamix.
3. Serve immediately and enjoy.
