Mystery Smoothie

Use this smoothie as a full breakfast drink. When you include blueberries, the kids won't know that the drink is also brimming with healthy minerals and extra protein from the greens that have "mysteriously" made their way into it! The carob powder contributes extra calcium, and the nutritional yeast extra B-vitamins and proteins, to this nutrient-dense drink.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 to 2 cups soy milk, rice milk, or juice
  • 1/2 cup blueberries or mixed berries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 banana, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup chopped mango, peaches, cherries, or apricots, fresh or frozen
  • 1-2 teaspoon agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon carob powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/2-1 cup packed fresh spinach or swiss chard leaves, washed and well-drained

Instructions

  1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth and no specks of the greens remain.
  2. Pour into glasses immediately and enjoy!
