I’ve really been enjoying souper-food smoothies this summer. People usually have these for breakfast but there is no way I’m getting a food processor out first thing in the morning. I usually drink these in the early evening while souper-baby is eating her dinner. They make me feel really clean, healthy and energetic but, if I’m honest, the rest of the family are never really that interested. Until I made this combination, that is! Souper nutritious and very yummy. I was actually pretty disappointed as I had to share it….
2 large handfuls of kale
1 large handful of spinach
1 frozen banana (sliced before freezing)
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup water
Put the kale in a blender with a cup of water and blend thoroughly. It might need a bit of shaking/scraping down but it will suddenly change from a blender full of curly kale to a pool of green liquid in the bottom.
Add the spinach and blend again, then add the frozen banana and cinnamon and blend one last time. Serve immediately.
Souper-baby decided it looked rather tasty and ended up drinking a huge glass. Pretty good work for a 14 month old. I took the baby-led weaning route with her and it has worked really well for us, she eats better than many grown-ups. I’ll post more about it soon if anyone is interested – let me know in the comments!
