I love smoothies. I really love smoothies now that I bought a high-power blender. And I really really love smoothies when they are healthy, bright green and kid-friendly.
Thanks to Nicola from www.gfreemom.com for sponsoring Detox January – a month of juices, smoothies and gfree soups. Here is my recipe for a Green Goddess Smoothie. You can add any type of yogurt but we use the vanilla So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt.
I usually add a quartered kiwi to our green smoothies. I leave the skin on for two reasons. First, it is loaded with fiber and second, most of the vitamins in a kiwi are found directly under the skin, so removing the skin also removes most of the vitamins.

Green Goddess Smoothie
1 cup frozen green grapes
1 kiwi, quartered, with the woody ends removed
1 green apple, chopped into chunks (cored if you want)
2 cups spinach, rinsed well
1 6 oz. container vanilla So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt
water to thin out consistency if needed
Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick, add water to thin it out.
