Smoothies are a very frequent go-to in our household. Between my juicer and blender, I can cram a shocking amount of greens and healthy (non pizza) items into my 12 year old.
Finn used to be an incredibly picky eater so I always needed a creative way to get a lot of vegetables & greens into his diet. I'm convinced I could hide anything in a smoothie.
When I say I hide things in smoothies - I'm not just just talking about hiding spinach or the occasional beet - I hide MUSHROOM POWDER which I can only assume would be served on Hell's Buffet during each and every meal. Just the thought of Mushroom Powder grosses me out. I make the smoothies and I have to hide it from myself but I use it as much and as often as possible.
Why? It's actually delicious, it brings a subtle earthiness that doesn't compete with any of the other flavors. Where it goes, I have no idea. I'm just glad it goes somewhere.
Here's a bit of Mushroom Information that will make you give more love to these little guys than perhaps you did before.
In addition to the mushroom powder, we love Matcha - Green Tea is probably the greatest nutritional weapon in our arsenal and we love combining it with berries and coconut water / milk to make a delicious smoothie!
We use a base of coconut water and milk (always combined) and frozen fruit as the foundation for every single smoothie we make. We usually top our smoothies with cocoa nibs and coconut which adds a bit of texture and crunch.
