Shamrock Smoothie

A friend of mine highly recommended the book, “Let’s Eat Right to Keep Fit” by Adelle Davis. I’ve been reading it and appreciating her common sense approach to health. She’s a great advocate for supplementing with vitamins and minerals, and as I looked over her recommended dosing for protein, I realized I hadn’t been feeding our family enough!
I’ve been more conscious of our protein intake, especially because the kids are 9 and 7 and 3 and NEEEEEED some solid things to make the strong. They aren’t big eaters (unless there’s brownies).
I picked up some protein powder at the grocery store (and Sam’s) and I’ve been giving them this shake a few times a week. They love it!

You’re Going to Need:

Milk (any kind, we use cow milk right now)
Vanilla Protein Powder
Spinach
Bananas

I don’t really measure anything, I just fill the blender about halfway with milk, toss in two scoops of powder, a banana and about 1-2 cups of spinach.
