Let them eat KALE! (updated)

Watch this. It's my best parenting trick yet! (PLEASE don't pay attention to their messy hair. One thing at a time!)



p.s. I've made these with handfuls of spinach too. I swear, they love it! It tastes just like a fruit smoothie but with a little leafy-freshness. They have had one every day for the past week. It's a great way to ensure your kids are getting their 5-a-day!


Huge thanks to Kath at Kath Eats Real Food... she both inspired me to make green smoothies and she brought a bunch of blog readers to see the video of Skyler and Reed. I love the thought of more moms blending up greens for their kiddos.

ALSO, I've made a bunch more of these since we made the video, and I've found I can use about 2 or 3 times the greens and half the fruit juice. Our latest smoothies are BRIGHT green and they suck them on down. It's a GREEN SMOOTHIE REVOLUTION around here!

What a fun idea... "the Smoothie Maker Show" - adorable kids! And good background music :-)

Great job getting your kids to eat all those fruits and veggies in a healthy smoothie!! I will do that one day when I'm a mom.
Love the background music as well :)

Hi emilie,
You should definitely send this to Michelle Obama whose primary cause is childhood obesity. She would love it and could use it in her campaign! How long before your kids' names are household words? I hear Oprah is next!!!!!

I loved this video! My son is a comfirmed veggie hater, but he did like the green smoothie I made him. I'm going to have to get on the ball and make them more often.

You're kids are adorable.
