Smoothies are a great way to pack a meal with superfoods, especially when you’re feeding your vegetable-averse kids or rushing out the door on the way to the gym or to work. You can blend up fruit, vegetables, fiber, protein, healthy fats and green juice powders all in one grab-and-go meal. And what kid would say no to a green smoothie? (OK, if they do say no, tell them it’s a green Hulk smash smoothie.)
And since you’re making it at home, you’re not at the mercy of the local smoothie shop that often hands you a sugary milkshake.
Here’s a healthy twist on a fast-food favorite shake. You still get the minty green color and flavor but it’s full of antioxidants and healthful ingredients. The grass powder adds an extra kick of verdant color as well as vitamins, minerals, enzymes and chlorophyll.
