Easy Recipe
Prep Time

This mild-tasting smoothie is very simple to make using a high-powered blender. Once your child gets accustomed to this version, add another leaf of kale to the blender (the flavor will get a little stronger). I like to add a little freshly squeezed lemon juice to all smoothies which will help prevent the fruit from oxidizing and keep the smoothie fresh, especially if you plan to store it in the refrigerator for a day or two. Some babies react to citrus so please check for a reaction before adding it to the smoothie. I like to buy bunches of ripe organic bananas and then peel them and freeze them in large containers to have on hand for smoothie recipes like this one. If you have leftover smoothie, you can freeze it in popsicle molds. My kids love eating green smoothie popsicles!
