Who said smoothies were just for kids? This video demonstrates how to make a healthy and invigorating recipe that contains lots of great ingredients such as apples, spinach, flax seeds, Greek yogourt, honey and milk. Smoothies make refreshing snacks, are perfect anytime and ready in a flash!

In a blender, combine milk, fruit and vegetables and other ingredients (as called for); purée until smooth. Pour into glasses (pour Be Green over ice); serve immediately.

Tips

When making smoothies, make sure all ingredients are cold and frozen ingredients are taken right from the freezer. Pulse the blender a few times to start with to chop up large pieces, then hold the power on for the best texture.

Kids can help measure the ingredients and add them to the blender. Older kids can make these on their own. Chill travel cups in the freezer and pour in freshly-made smoothies for mornings on the run, or before-sports snacks.
