Since my diagnosis of MTHFR I have been trying to up my intake of foods containing folic acid/folate to compliment the 1mg of folic acid and baby aspirin I take daily. Green smoothies have been an easy way to do this and my two year old will happily drink them as well (it’s the only way I can get him to eat most vegetables). I thought I’d share my “recipe” with you in hopes that you’d share your recipe with me. What do YOU put in your green smoothies?
- 1-2 cups of cream top, vanilla yogurt
- whatever fruit I have on hand (apple, banana, berries, etc.)
- organic kale and/or spinach
- raw, unheated honey (optional, but useful when fruit is tart)
Directions: Blend until smooth. Add ice until you achieve desired consistency.
If you have a kiddo in your home that doesn’t like to eat vegetables but loves popsicles, put some of your green smoothie in an ice cube tray and freeze it. G loves these treats (we don’t have real popsicles in our freezer) and requests them frequently. All I do is take one out, put it in a bowl, cut it up if necessary and put him in his highchair (it’s messy). Little does he know that he’s eating vegetables. Bwuahahahahaha!
