I made a smoothie today.
In it I put:
a tbsp of cocoa powder,
a tbsp of honey,
a cup of milk,
4 ice cubes and...
a big handful of baby spinach leaves.
I whizzed it up in the blender and offered the kiddo some chocolate milkshake.
Now he knows this isn't a regular milkshake - while on the 1st phase of the south beach diet, I used to make a milkshake with milk, ice cubes, cocoa powder & stevia that he loved.
So when I offered this, he said yes.
He asked why it was a weird colour...I said because I added banana. He took a sip and promptly stated that he did not like bananas in chocolate mikshakes.
Darn, and I thought maybe I had a new way to sneak some veggies into him :)
It did taste a little green - maybe next time I will use a little less spinach and a bit more honey.
