I only say "for the boys" because both Jeremy and I make our morning smoothies differently. His get extra protein and mine more veggies and spices, but we'll cover those another day. These are perfect for the kiddos. The blueberries worked their magic in making the spinach incognito, the mango and pineapple mixture gave them a perfect "pina colada" taste and the honey made them sweeter, although I'm tempted to either omit the honey or just add half a tablespoon next time.
I love to use blueberries in a lot of the smoothies I make for the boys not just because they're so delicious and nutritious, but also because they make it easy to hide spinach or kale in them without the boys realizing it. I'm sure that knowledge would somehow prevent them from gulping them down so happily. I haven't built up the nerve yet to test my theory.
