Most green smoothie recipes aren't really designed for kids' palates. This one is different. It is still healthy and full of vitamin-rich vegetables and fruits, but this green smoothie gets a touch of extra sweetness from the addition of chocolate hazelnut spread. You don't need much, but it adds a sweet and chocolatey flavor to this uber healthy smoothie recipe.

Green Smoothie Recipe - so healthy!, Member Lynnhaag

While I haven't made this yet I can't wait to make it for St. Patrick's Day as my daughter will be so excited about the green that she won't even ask what's in it!! I've been making a yummy smoothie for myself that has spinach (and is green) but instead of pineapple & grapes I throw in a bananna & 1/2 apple. Also about 1 TBS of uncooked oatmeal (for fiber) and it's great!
