I bet you never thought you'd drink anything quite this green before, but you may think differently after you try this delicious and healthy drink recipe.

Green smoothies are becoming increasingly more popular as more and more people have discovered how easy they are to make and the health benefits they so easily provide. As an added bonus, if you are trying to get little ones to eat more fruits and vegetables, I can say from personal experience having spent nearly a whole hour at times negotiating with a 3 year old regarding a plate of said veggies that have never been touched, that I feel your pain. Enter the hero of this story, The Green Smoothie Recipe! My kids love them! They love the interesting color and because they truly do taste amazing, it isn't hard to get them to drink them. For Halloween I was going to put little faces on the cups and tell the kids they were Green Monster Smoothies!

The recipe I tend to use is quick and easy and you can mix up the ingredients to your liking. I have found that if I keep most of the frozen ingredients on hand in the freezer it is much easier to whip one of these up whenever I want one. They are really great for kids and families who are on the go and need a quick breakfast or energizing snack.

Green Smoothie Recipe

• 1 cup mango (fresh or frozen)
• 1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
• 2 cups of water
• 2 cups of fresh baby spinach
• 1 ripe banana
• 1 apple cut into pieces

Blend all ingredients together a little bit at a time until smooth. The resulting smoothie should be medium to bright green. Pour into your favorite cup or to-go cup and you are all set.
