Smoothie Addiction

I've only had it for a week--my early Christmas present, the Vitamix. I love it so much. I use it everyday--once to make my smoothie for breakfast or lunch, and then once again when the kids get home from school,'cuz they like their smoothies too (well, two-thirds of them do).

My favorite smoothie is what you see here. Everything is organic. Coconut milk, a big handful of kale, one banana, frozen berries, frozen mango, frozen pineapple and a spoonful of chia.

Last night we cleared off the dinner table, and everyone had left when we realized that one of the children hadn't touched his veggie. We were debating whether to call him back when we realized he'd already had 1/2 a cup of raw kale in his snack that afternoon without even realizing it. Crisis averted. Heh heh.
