Smoothies are a great way to get kids to eat their fruit and veggies. I love making smoothie recipes for kids like this one, "The Popeye Smoothie."

The Popeye Smoothie

Course Beverages
Cuisine Probiotics
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 2


  • 1 banana ripe -with lots of black spots
  • 4 large strawberries
  • 1 cup yogurt or homemade kefir
  • 1 handful spinach


  • Add all of your ingredients to your blender. You want to use a very ripe banana because they do a better job of sweetening your smoothie without needing any additional sweeteners. If it isn't sweet enough for you, though, you can add whatever sweetener you prefer.
  • Blend all of your ingredients together. You can add in a little water and/or ice to get the consistency you prefer. The ice will thicken it a bit and make it colder, of course.
  • You can optionally add in a raw, pastured egg or some protein powder.
