Everyone knows the amazing health benefits of a green smoothie. All of the recipes say they are “the best, most delicious and nutritious”! We are proud to say our Magic Potion has some impressive market research behind it. 😉
After serving this wonderful green concoction 11 out of 11 kids, gave it 2 thumbs up! It’s also helpful to note, during our experiment we discovered giving the smoothie a name other than “Green Smoothie” helped the cause! Our kids loved calling it “Mutagen” (as in the green goop that made the ninja turtles into ninja turtles) or “Magic Potion”. Snack time turned into a fun imaginative game!
Our recipe for Magic Potion/ Mutagen Smoothie
(Serves 4 kids or 2 grown ups)
Add ingredients in this order for a super creamy smoothie
1 cup Coconut water
2 Limes, juiced
1 tsp. Ginger, freshly grated
1 handful Spinach
1 Avocado, cubed
2 pitted, medjool dates
1 Granny smith apple, cubed
1 cup Frozen Mango or 1 fresh Mango, sliced

Throw all of this in a blender and mix! If your smoothie is too thick and isn’t blending well, add a splash more coconut water until it can be mixed easily.
