The little one in our house that eats everything just will not eat most vegetables in their natural form. That's not to say we don't to try, beg, plead. To date we've conquered his aversion to broccoli trees, green beans and cannonball peas. For the rest, well, we rely on smoothies. You can hide A LOT in them. Today I served up carrot cake in a glass. It won his "mmmmm." Will it win yours?

Pinch of SALT
Sweeten to taste with your favorite SWEETENER (I use 10 drops of stevia concetrate)

Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender (I use a Blendtec), except ice, until super smooth. Add ice and blend until smooth.
How have you won your kids over to vegetables?
