Green Smoothie: Peach-Ginger Smoothie Recipe

Selected from Glue and Glitter.

Green Smoothie

This green smoothie recipe is a great baby breakfast that you can eat too!

Darrol Henry had his first green smoothie this week, and he LOVED it! After seeing what a bright green color this recipe produced, I was worried that Darrol would reject something so green-tasting, but he basically chugged this out of his big boy cup!

In the photo below, you’ll see him holding a sippy cup. It may even look like he is drinking his green smoothie from this cup, but don’t be fooled. My child refuses to hold a bottle or use a sippy cup. I keep trying, but I ended up having to take the lid off of this and tipping the smoothie carefully into his mouth. He loves drinking this way. It’s very cute but impossible to photograph.

Baby Green Smoothie

This green smoothie recipe is based on one in my book 40 Days of Green Smoothies. I scaled it up a bit, so there’d be enough for me and Darrol to share and subbed ground ginger for fresh to save time. I also omitted the ice, because I wanted this green smoothie recipe to be thin enough for a sippy cup straw.

I developed this recipe for the 2014 Breakfast in Bed event at my friend Angela’s site: Canned Time. Each month, a different vegan food blogger is going to share an awesome breakfast recipe. Obviously, I had to share Darrol Henry’s first green smoothie!
