Dora Juice

Is it as hard for you to get your kids to eat their veggies as it is for me?!? This fun green smoothie gets at least a couple of servings of spinach into them and they don't even know it! We called it "Dora Juice" just to make it more fun and help their reaction to a green drink go a little more smoothly.
1/2 can Orange Juice concentrate
Vanilla yogurt or a banana
Fill blender with spinach (I smashed it down to fit more). Add OJ concentrate (I used a little less than could probably do a third), vanilla yogurt (I used 1/3 or 1/2 cup) and milk (just enough to help it blend). Blend until it turns green and there are no more spinach chunks. Sit back and watch your kids enjoy their veggies with satisfaction.

What an amazing idea!! I gotta pick up some spinach next time I'm at the store and see if I can trick Zachary...

Sounds like something I need. I don't do very well at eating my veggies, they're not that convenient.

It worked! It worked! I tried it last night and you were absolutely right-- I sat back and felt so GRATIFIED that my little picky eaters were literally drinking their veggies. This is a gem. I hope you don't mind if I share it on my food blog!
