Getting kids to eat their greens is no easy feat. But we think we’ve figured out the trick…. Smoothies! And popsicles!

Mint Chip Smoothie (and Popsicle!)

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a blender or processor, blend all ingredients (except chocolate chips) until completely smooth.
  2. Pour into cups if enjoying as a smoothie and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  3. If making popsicles, pour into popsicle molds or paper cups with spoons as the sticks. Add chocolate chips to each mold. They will sink to the bottom but that’s okay! Freeze completely.
