Lisa's Spinach Blueberry Smoothie
This is a quick and easy way to get some good quality nutrients and antioxidants first thing in the morning. My eight year old and 3 ½ year old love this smoothie. The beautiful deep blue purple pigmentation from the blueberries disguises the pigmentation of the green spinach. Then the sweetness from the Welch's 100% grape juice concentrate masks the flavor of the spinach. When I first made this smoothie for my boys I put it in a colorful plastic PBA free cup with a little bit of Reddy Whip cream topping with some dark chocolate sprinkles and a straw....viola they drank it with no problem. Presentation is everything with children!
