Healthy Breakfast Idea!
Here is a healthy green smoothie that’s kids friendly packed with vitamins & minerals and they will gladly enjoy it without knowing there is spinach in it. You can make many variations of substituting other fruits in season but remember to keep it low in sugar. Berries are best as they are low in sugar and keep the milk low in fat as well. I used a tablespoon of agave and you can use that or substitute stevia or raw sugar to keep it healthy.
Chef’s notes: Stevia does not affect your blood sugar and Agave has higher sugar content but its lowGi for absorption!
