This sneaky trick works with adults and kids or anyone that doesn’t like the texture or taste of vegetables.
Some people just don’t like the texture or taste of vegetables so they don’t eat them.
Others just don’t get in their vegetables like they should even though they know they should be.
I have a trick that works wonders and as I have found out works great for young kids to get in their vegetables every day.
It is called nutrient extraction.
Now if I can get an 8 and 4 year old to drink a green smoothie every morning with breakfast then there is no reason why you as an adult can’t get in your vegetables every day. 🙂
The key is it has to taste good. Correct?
If it tastes good then there will be no objection to consuming your vegetables.
So how did I do this?
There is some initial expense to this sneaky trick. If you don’t already own a blender designed to really grind up fruits and vegetables you will have to purchase one.
I own the Ninja blender, which works great in my opinion.
Here is the recipe I made for my kids that they just love and I love it because I know they are consuming superfoods each and every morning to start their day.
Now there are probably hundreds of different recipes you can make and we switch it up quite often, but I think the key to making it taste good each and every time is 1/2 of a certain fruit. I will reveal that fruit in just a little bit.
Here are the superfood vegetables and fruit that I used in this recipe.
- Collard Greens
What I have found I have needed to do since all 4 of us want a smoothie every morning is to make it all in the large blender or else I end up with no smoothie for myself.
If you are making it for yourself or for just 2 people you can use this quantity. It is simple to make larger amounts by doubling each fruit or vegetable.
1 cup Kale
1 cup Collard Greens
1/2 cup Spinach
1/2 cup Blueberries
1 tsp Ginger
1 cup Ice
1 cup Water
Now you can adjust the water and ice as you see fit based on how thick or thin you would like the smoothie.
So the key to making smoothie taste so good is the Banana. It has the right flavoring and thickness that will tone down any vegetables that may have a strong taste or any bitterness.
3 Additional Power Foods To Use In Your Smoothie
There are some amazing health benefits to Ginger and I have another article talking about 7 health benefits of Ginger plus a recipe for you.
What I use in smoothies is about a half inch by half inch size of Ginger diced up. It not only helps with shutting down fat cell production, but also reduces pain and inflammation amongst other great benefits.
You can pack in a days worth of Vitamin C in one smoothie by adding this citrus fruit. It is also a great fruit to provide great flavor to your smoothie.
Considered one of the healthiest foods in the world if you want to boost the health benefits of your smoothie then work in some Broccoli. It is a great detoxifier and wonderful at reducing internal inflammation. Here are some great benefits of Broccoli and why you should be consuming more of this vegetable.
You can also experiment with Strawberries, Cucumbers, Carrots, Apples and many other vegetables and fruits.
You will find just how much of different fruits and vegetables you can use in a recipe to fit your taste profile. The best part about it is that you are consuming numerous fruits and vegetables every day and improving your health and reducing your chances of illness or disease.
