Banana Oatmeal Green Monster- Sneaky way to get veggies in your diet

baking 6-10 206

I like vegetables, I really do.  BUT, if it weren’t for these green monsters, I would definitely not be eating enough.

If you’ve got a child who doesn’t eat his/her veggies (or you don’t) this is the perfect way around it.

I promise you, you can’t even taste the spinach in this.  If it helps, you could always close your eyes while you drink it. ;)

Your kids will probably think it’s cool.  Remember when Heinz came out with green ketchup?  I remember when it first came out, I was so excited and I just had to get some.   I felt pretty cool eating it.



This is the same concept… only a smoothie, not ketchup.

Don’t be scared, it’s just spinach.
