As an adult who eats like a 3rd grader ;-) I have been on a quest to get more veggies into my diet because, quite frankly, I just don't like many vegetables. I've figured out "green smoothies" are a great way to trick myself into getting more leafy greens into my diet without the "yuk factor". So, armed with several recipes, I bought myself a Vitamix and have been trying out a different one each day. I've focused mainly on recipes with Kale and/or spinach and this one is one of the best! It's plenty sweet, but not too sweet. Other than adding 1 Tbsp of ground flax seed, I made it as written and it was delicious! If you are looking for a good way to sneak veggies into your kids diet, I think they will find this smoothie yummy! The only difference was my smoothie was brown-green in color and not raspberry as in the photo, which is a much more "kid-friendly color". Color aside, I give it 5 stars!
