Invisible Green Smoothie
This is my best green weapon for getting in the amazing greens and beautiful healthy fats into my 2 older kids over the younger toddler years. It’s the best way I know my 3 year old has got a belly full of goodies.
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 8cm length of raw zucchini
  • 2 teaspoons of avocado (great brain food and healthy fats)
  • 1⁄2 cup macadamia nuts (great brain food and healthy fats)
  • 4 medjool dates, pitted
  • 2cm length vanilla bean or 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla paste
  • 500ml milk of choice
  • good pinch cinnamon
Serves 2 Place everything in the blender, and process until really smooth. Add more liquid if your kids like it less thick. Options: Small handful of fresh mint and 1 tablespoon of cacao is perfect if your kids like choc-minty flavours. Perfect Spring Summer Smoothie! The zucchini and avocado give the smoothie a really creamy consistency. If you don’t have frozen bananas, just add some ice cubes to the smoothie!
