more please!

My kids have to drink a green smoothie every morning.
Somedays it is a battle (think a world war).
So imagine my surprise when the kids slurped theirs down this morning and asked for MORE!
The first recipe is the one they had this morning.
The second is a chocolatey favorite.
(Note:  The smoothies I drink are much greener than this.  I drink the second one as a healthy snack.  Both of these recipes are kid-friendly.)
Miss Pink really enjoyed her green smoothie popsicle.
The Yummiest Green Smoothie EVER!  (as named by my kids)

1/2 cup water (add more if too thick)
1 large handful spinach
1 clementine
1 ripe banana
7-8 strawberries
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 "squirt" flax oil

Place all ingredients in blender.  Blend until smooth.
So did Mr. Orange.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Smoothie

1 cup chocolate almond milk*
1 large handful of spinach
1 heaping tablespoon all-natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
1-2 ripe bananas**
4-5 ice cubes

*if using regular almond milk add 1/2 tablespoon cocoa and 1/2 tablespoon honey.
**can use frozen bananas, just omit ice cubes.

Place almond milk and spinach in blender and blend until smooth.  Add remaining ingredients and blend to desired consistency.

What is a Green Smoothie??
