Great Gluten Free Snack/Breakfast: Smoothie with spinach
I realize that looks disgusting. It isn't.
It's delicious! And packed with nutrients because it has spinach in it.
I don't have a recipe for this. Just make your favorite fruit smoothie (google a recipe if you don't know one) and throw a handful of baby spinach in it.
It makes it look disgusting, but it tastes good; *you can't taste the spinach. It's a great healthy snack or meal option that is gluten free!
For my smoothies I generally put some kind of frozen berries in, a banana, milk, and yogurt because I like it really creamy. There are lots of other ways to make them though. Experiment till you find what you like. I love this because it's a sweet treat that my kids gladly eat.
And if you make too much you can always freeze the extra as popsicles for a healthy treat later.
*I'm sure if you put a TON of spinach in it you'd be able to taste it. Play around with it till you get the amount you like.
