  1. I like making the kids a Green St Patty’s Smoothie. The green part being spinach (they have no clue), with strawberries, yogurt, honey and milk. So yummy and festive at the same time for St. Patty’s day. Then for the adult beverage we have green beer!!
    Something else that is fool proof is to add green dye to the kids cereal milk. They flip over this one too!!
