Spinach and Fruit Smoothies

One of the things that thrives in our garden is spinach. We eat lots of spinach salads and add it to our sandwiches and burgers in place of lettuce and we all enjoy it except for our daughter. She hates all leafy greens. We can't get her to eat salad, spinach, lettuce, or anything like it.  Our son will eat it raw with nothing on it, but not her, so here is one way we have found to get some nice iron rich spinach into her diet. We simply blend up a bunch of spinach with some nonfat plain yogurt, some fruit, and a bit of juice if you need it sweeter.  I don't follow a recipe I just throw whatever we have in the blender.  We usually have some frozen berries and bananas hanging around. You can't even taste the spinach. My kids love them especially when I serve them with a straw!
