A couple weeks ago, I committed to drinking one green smoothie a day. I’ve learned a lot about smoothies. First, they’re yummy. Second, they’re colorful. The amount of spinach I put in them dictates the color.

I tell you this because my kiddos have become quite the smoothie aficionados. Translation…they know mommy is putting greens in the smoothies…so now they don’t want them. Well that’s a bummer.

Then I had a lightbulb! What if I make popsicles with my leftovers? This could be a great way to make green smoothies for kids.

I’ll tell you what…they eat these smoothie pops! Score one for mommy.

Now I make a couple smoothies a day, and for the first one, I use less spinach.
