Mean Green Smoothies

Mean Green Smoothie - tastes SO good, and it's REALLY good for you too! Don't let the color fool you - all the fruits cover up the taste of the spinach! Addicting!
Ok – I admit it.  I don’t eat enough vegetables.  Wait, I take that back…..  I don’t eat enough vegetables that haven’t been fried.  Probably not the best way to eat them for nutritional value, but heck – they sure do taste good.  😉

 

But, I need those vegetables.  My kids need those vegetables.  Heck, we all need them!  Even if we don’t wanna.

We don’t have to eat them per say though when we can throw them in a blender with some yummy fruits to make one awesome treat.  This Mean Green Smoothie is a personal favorite of mine because it packs in the nutrients that we all need – and more importantly (in my mind) it tastes good.
