Easy Green Kiwi Smoothie Recipe

Do you know the woman whose recipes sneak healthy vegetable puree into the meals of unsuspecting kids? Well, I’ve got a smoothie recipe that will knock your socks off. Seriously, the health factor is secondary. In my household, we affectionately call it “Shrek Juice,” but it will probably taste just as good if you call it a St. Patrick’s Day smoothie or green kiwi smoothie.

Smoothies don’t have to be an exact science, so you can experiment with your proportions.

Two things I will tell you, though, are these: (1) The bananas mask the taste of the spinach. Do not omit or reduce them. If you can still taste the spinach, add another banana. (2) This smoothie is just as good using other frozen fruit in lieu of the frozen mango or the kiwis, so if you see something else on sale, don’t hesitate.     Only mangoes or peaches will maintain the beautiful green color, though. Using frozen berries is still yummy, but turns it kind of a brownish color.
