Shrek Shakes are a Success

29 07 2009

CIMG5984I have heard about Shrek Shakes a few times before, but never thought to really try it. The basic recipe is a cup or so of water, a banana and a few handfuls of spinach. The other day though I had a bunch of lettuce (really? who would have thought?) that I wanted to use up and one banana left. I also had four kids looking for a snack. Well easier to make banana milk shakes than split a banana in four and have it satisfy everyone. So I made green banana shakes- the kids thought it was so good they slurped them down and asked for more. Today I made them again with spinach added (the lettuce makes the color a mint green instead of shrek green). More slurping and better pictures! I have found a new way to get green veggies in the kids. 







If you decide to make this, be prepared and make a double batch!
