Eat your Veggies

I'm trying to get my girls to eat more vegetables, especially Annie who is a big fan of spitting things out of her mouth. So I was so excited when I got an idea from my friend Melissa, a "green monster shake". And it totally worked, so I thought I'd pass it on to anybody else who might have trouble with giving their kids enough veggies.



Green Monster Shake (this made enough for my girls, James, and I)

1 1/2 cups orange juice
1 ripe banana
1 cup ice
fill up rest of blender with raw baby spinach

My girls loved it! And I tried it, and you really can't taste the spinach, it was yummy. Let me know if you try it and it works for you too!

Sounds good! By the way, I lost the blanket you made for Jane and I'm devastated. I LOVED that blanket. I went to the fabric store so I could remake it. They didn't have the exact same fabric patterns, but they did have other Michael Miller patterns. Do you mind telling me how to make it?

Unfortunately, I still don't think that Jakson would eat his veggies even this way. But maybe I will...

We loved it! Kate was very skeptical of the green, but once she tasted it she said, "It tastes like pink!" It was definitely a winner- thanks for sharing! It is also delicious with frozen blueberries.

How cute are you? I just found your blog. I'm totally adding you to my faves. Sorry I missed your Mary Kay party...my sister does it too so I have her order my stuff. I hope you guys are doing well. We need to go grab shakes at Ruby's with Tara and Laura Davis. And anyone else you want!
