Raw Yogurt Super Green Smoothie

Sounds awful but our kids drank it up. When our family needs a super boost in immunity support or the kids have not ate their veggies for a couple of days I turn to this recipe. Use raw yogurt made in the oven (see link for recipe) or store-bought. This recipe is packed with vitamins, live probiotics and iron. As a nurse practitioner I would always recommend probiotics for a number of aliments. This is a delicious way to enjoy these benefits, and share with your family. If you do not have a Vitamix the smoothie may be trickier for the kids to like as it wont be silky smooth- but the taste should be just fine! I use any  leftover smoothie as freezer pops to enjoy later. image
