Breakfast Veggies

Brian was wanting to increase his fruits and veggies and I had just read an article about blending leafy greens as a cheaper alternative to juicing them- takes alot more to juice, so with a large family blending seemed like a great option. We tried it and actually liked it. The spinach isn't too strong, we actually taste the orange juice and strawberries more than spinach.

Now every morning with breakfast we have glasses of green juice. Naomi used to wake up and ask for milk and now she asks for juice. She loves it!

I just eyeball it every day, so I took a picture of the blender so you could have more of an idea of what I use.

I pack in 2 or 3 handfuls of spinach, 3-5 frozen strawberries and pour orange juice over that until it hits around the 2 cup mark on the blender. Then my blender makes it really easy because it has a "drink" button and goes through several different speeds for about a minute.

I've stuck in apples, bananas, peaches, apricots, etc and they are all tasty.

Just so you know, Naomi won't eat spinach any other way so I love it when she drinks a big glass of juice.

My kids absolutely love this juice. They are picky eaters and don't like many green veggies so it is fantastic for them. Thank you!!
