Green Monster Juice

IMG_8346

Ingredients

1 large handful of spinach

1 ripe pear, peeled and cored

2 tbsp Greek yogurt

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp honey

1/4 cup of water

Method

  1. Combine all of the ingredients into a blender or NutriBullet and blend. Make sure spinach and pear are cold so the juice is lovely and refreshing
  2. Voila – drink!

If you’re having trouble getting veggies into your little one, this is a great way to sneak in some green leafy vegetables. Spinach or Kale can be used, as they are both fairly tasteless leaves. Both are loaded with amazing nutrients that are great for bones, immunity, skin and eyes. My girls down this for an 11am snack and it keeps them going, usually running around the park, until lunch at 12:30pm. It’s easy to prepare; you can keep in the fridge in an air tight jar (use an old glass jar) and take it with you when you’re out and about, or as an after school snack. Give it a good shake before drinking. It makes about 7-8oz.

Enjoy!

      It’s the cinnamon that makes it stand out, in my opinion…
