Here is an easy way to get all of your greens in the winter!
Super Green Smoothie Mix that contains 28 different herbs that contain a balance of nutrition that tops any multivitamin you can buy on the market for literally half the price. When this is mixed into a smoothie, you can rest assured knowing the kids are getting the benefits daily. With the knowledge that we should be getting our 5-6 serving of veggies a day, breakfast is the one meal most people forget to add them too. A typical American breakfast consists of eggs, meat, bread, cereal, yogurt, milk, or fruit. If you add a few tablespoons of my Super Green Smoothie Mix to an entire smoothie, some mung bean sprouts, kale, and spinach, you have a very healthy power packed smoothie that contains at least a couple servings of your much needed greens without the struggle.
Adding the nutrients to a delightfully creamy smoothie is just the perfect fix. My kids will never turn down a smoothie even when I sneak in the super greens, in fact, they beg for more. If there ever is any smoothie left in the blender, I quickly fill up popsicle molds and pop them into the freezer. The kids think it is a special treat to have a “smoothie pop” after each meal. They are getting more servings of probiotics, fruit, veggies, and herbs. It makes a mother feel good to know her children are getting the nutrition they need as they grow.
Note: We recommend using with caution during pregnancy or nursing.
