Recipe that tastes good

I call this the Immune Booster because its so packed with Vita A, C, and E and Iron which is exactly what our bodies need to fight off disease. 

1 cup water
1 cup apple juice
1-2 bananas (this will make it really sweet)
2 avocado
2 handfuls of spinach
4 frozen apricots
2 cups red chard
optional: 1-2 T wheat germ

Blend until smooth. 
*tips: don't let your kids see you make this if your kids are picky.  I have to hide the avocado from my kids. The avocado is a great way to add Iron, and good fats into their diets.

*tips: if you really want to boost the immune system and fight disease especially coughs then add some wheat germ. This flaky powder does not change the texture or sweetness; my kids don't even notice it.  Wheat germ is high in B-vitamins which will enhance the body's ability to use the vitamins found in the smoothie. Adding wheat germ is a perfect way of balancing the nutrients in your kids diets and the great thing is they don't even have a clue that it's in it.  Try it.  Located in the baking aisle at most grocery stores where the flour/grains are.
