Earth Day Smoothies


Earth day is coming up on Saturday... a wonderful time to talk to your kids about the planet we live on and the ways we try to help care for it.  I still remember winning an Earth Day contest in elementary school for my “protect the endangered panda bears” poster.  Yes, poster contests were a thing in the 90’s.

I love these smoothies because they look like the swirly beauty of our planet...

Earth Day Smoothies
Ingredients:
2 Bananas, frozen
1/2 cup Spinach
1/2 – 1 cup Coconut Water
1/2 cup Blueberries, frozen
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt, Plain
Add a banana, spinach and coconut water to a blender and purée until green and creamy, pour into a glass.  Rinse your blender and add the other banana, blueberries, yogurt and a little coconut water (if needed) and purée until smooth.  Pour into the middle of the green smoothie.  Kids love using a straw to swirl the two colors of smoothie to make an earth design in their cups…almost as much as they love drinking this sweet and creamy treat!
