Smoothie Anyone?

My kids LOVE smoothies. Paul and I started adding veggies to ours and little by little I started adding them to the kids. Well, one day I got caught and Alexis was mortified by what she saw me put in hers until I told her I had been doing it for months. Now she begs for them every morning. And I can't really complain when she gets a few servings of vegetables in it. Not to mention Slade being such a picky eater gets mad when he doesn't get his share.

Recipe for one blender full of yummy SLUDGE:

1 Yogurt (any flavor)
1/2 Banana
1C Frozen fruit (blueberries/strawberries/etc.)
1C Milk (for the girls who need their calcium)
2C Water
1/2C Red cabbage
1 Piece Kale
4 Baby carrots
2 Handfuls Spinach
4 Ice cubes
1-2 Scoops protien powder
1 Scoop milled flax seed

(If you're scared you can add a few extra strawberries or other fruit to sweeten it up, but really you don't need much fruit to disguise the taste of all the vegetables. Be creative and even start by adding some extra fruit and only using a little spinach or carrots until you get brave enough to add some more!)
