Berry Blueberry Smoothie (with Sneaky Spinach)

Prep Time 5 minutes Cook Time 5 minutes

What kid doesn’t love a smoothie? This one is loaded with vitamins, antioxidants and iron due to a few sneaky ingredients. I love that the dark color of the blueberries perfectly disguises the spinach (and the kids are crazy about the taste). I call that a win-win!
