This smoothie tastes like dessert.

AND, it has a top-secret ingredient that your kids will never guess.

There is a whole handful of mixed greens in this tasty, sweet, smoothie!

Ha! They’ll never know!

If you’ve never tried vanilla almond milk, here’s your chance. While it’s not my top favorite to drink straight out of the glass, vanilla almond milk adds a deliciously sweet touch to cereal & smoothies. I actually prefer vanilla almond milk with my granola over regular milk. ;)

I love the addition of mixed greens here because the purple-ish lettuce leaves help the smoothie to maintain it’s rich color. If you substitute something like baby spinach or baby kale for the mixed greens then you might end up with a less appetizing smoothie color. Frozen strawberries don’t actually have a strong flavor, so the addition of them here is mostly for the ‘chill’ factor & the ‘color’ factor.

Try this smoothie and let me know what you think!

P.S – As always, if you use raspberries in your smoothies you will get a few little seeds. Just pour it through a cheesecloth if texture bothers your child. The flavor is worth it!

  1. We usually put greens in our smoothies, the kids are used to the little green flecks. But I like the idea of using purple leaves for more camouflage! May have to steal that idea!

  2. I’ve got to start hiding some veggies on them..but they don’t trust me on the smoothies! LOL But I’ll have to try this one myself!

  3. I’ve never thought about it pouring it over cheesecloth! Thanks for linking up!

  4. Just made this for my picky 4 yr old and he loved it! I added a 1/4 cup of cottage cheese for some protein and it was a hit! Thx
