Green Fed

a blog about a girl who decided eating plants was the way to go

We drink a green smoothie ever single morning.  When I say “we” that does include our two boys (ages 4 1/2 and 3)!  This smoothie fills my husband and I up for a few hours.  My boys eat a big bowl of steel cut oats or 9 grain cereal (found in bulk section of our food co-op) after they polish off their smoothies!

Our Fave Green Smoothie

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup water

1 banana

handful of berries

1 green apple

3 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut (we like this, but not everyone might)

2 carrots (unpeeled, organic)

1 TBSP of flax seed per person

5-6 stems of kale, removed from stem

3 healthy handfuls of spinach (or however much will fit in your blender!)

more water as needed to make smooth

enough ice to make it cold enough for you

HEALTH BENEFITS OF KALE

9-grain cereal  (2-3 servings)

Bring pot of 1 1/2 cups water to boil.  Stir in 1/2 cup oats (and coconut & cinnamon if adding).  Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for about 8-10 minutes.  Dress as you wish.  My boys love adding a little bit of almond milk, berries, banana slices, walnuts, coconut and cinnamon to theirs.
