Green Monster

Say hello to my little monster. My Little Monster

He is large and in charge. Three years old and he thinks he is grown. He likes to dress himself, has a mind of his own and does not like to be told what to do.

Oh, and that little puppy there, yeah she loves him to pieces and he’s pretty fond of her too. He also loves to eat but is the pickiest child I know. Getting this sweet boy to eat any kind of vegetable has been almost impossible. They say to offer new foods to children over and over again to let them adjust to the new taste but my child will not even try it. If he doesn’t like the look of it, you can forget it.

In comes the green monster

Spinach smoothie on my porch

I know what you’re thinking.. “there is no way any child would want to eat that!”

You would think not, but call this a shake, explain that Popeye would love it and my little guy thinks it’s the best thing in the world. After two small cups he asked for thirds.

In the blender:

  • 1 cup spinach leaves
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 pear, seeded
  • 1 frozen banana

Blend well and enjoy
