I’ll start off by saying that I’m pretty lucky to have kids who eat their greens. But even if I didn’t, I think this Spooky Green Smoothie would be irresistible to them. If you have a kid who avoids eating his or her greens, this drink treat (just in time for Halloween) may just be the answer to your prayers.

On a vegetable nutrition ranking, spinach is way up at the top in terms of vitamin and mineral richness. Packed with Vitamins K and A, magnesium and folate — just to name just a few — there’s no doubt why Popeye ate so much of the stuff. It gives this delicious drink a beautiful green color as well as a mild, sweet flavor that will surprise you. With the added (healthy) sweetness from banana and agave, this smoothie will be the perfect Hallo-WEE-N treat for your kids and their friends this holiday. My hope is that they like it so much, you’ll be making it year round!

  1. This is great — my 5 year old veggie hater loved it. She also loves your green popsicles/smoothie. Smoothies seem to be the only way to get some greens in her, and she helps make the smoothies so she knows exactly what’s going in it.

  2. I have 3 q’s Was that a 2 qt. jar? What amount of rice, or ratio of water to rice? And, In what sort of light did you leave the bttole sit while soaking and while sprouting? Thanks for the great work, it’s very helpful.
