A brilliant way to get children to eat spinach, these smoothies can be enjoyed as they are, or frozen to make lollies!
- 1 banana
- 1 glass of spinach leaves (approx 30 g)
- 1 glass of frozen pineapple chunks (approx. 125 g)
- 1 glass apple juice (approx. 150 ml)
- 1 tablespoon oats
Peel the banana, break into chunks and put into a jug or blender.
Wash the spinach in a sieve or colander and shake to dry. Add the spinach to the jug.
Fill a glass with frozen pineapple and tip into the blender. Almost fill the same glass with apple juice and add to the blender. Add 1 tablespoon oats.
Blend until really smooth and pour into glasses to drink, or pour into lolly moulds and freeze.
