We love green smoothies! But some kids might need to try their sweet green treat in a new way. For parents who just can’t get their kids to gulp down a green smoothie, try this Peachy Keen Icy Dream instead. This super simple sorbet is similar a green smoothie, just with with a little less liquid, and a bit of patience while you wait for it to freeze.
- 3 cups frozen peaches
- 3 cups fresh baby spinach
- only enough coconut milk to make our blender spin. It actually ended up being almost a full cup, but not quite.
Then, we put the whole thing in the freezer for only a few hours, so it was still scoopable, yet the consistency of sorbet.
For extra nutrients, I stirred in some chia seeds at the end, before I put it in the freezer.
*The Fine Print: Just a heads up: this doesn’t taste like ice cream. It’s mildly sweet and tastes like exactly what it is: a frozen green smoothie. If you are in a *healthy transition, go ahead and add a little honey to sweeten it up. Otherwise, start young and get your kids used to a ‘less sweet’ flavor!
Ahhhh, delicious summer snack!!
