Erin’s Super Green Smoothie Mixby Erin Harrison

Smoothies are a staple in our home.  We have a family cow on a little homestead in Wisconsin, so we are usually swimming in good raw milk.  Making homemade dairy products like kefir, yogurt, butter, and cheese with our raw milk is not only a fun family activity, it is a great way to get in good probiotics.  Each morning for the last 8 years we have made kefir smoothies with our children.  And with each passing year, I have had more fun being creative with the smoothies, adding healthier things to it.  It is a great way to “hide” the super nutrients and get them into our children’s diet.  When blended into a fruit and yogurt smoothie, the kids will never realize healthy could taste so delicious.

After much research, I developed a  Erin’s Super Green Drink Mix that contains 28 different herbs that contain a balance of nutrition that tops any multivitamin you can buy on the market for literally half the price.  When this is mixed into a smoothie, you can rest assured knowing the kids are getting the benefits daily.  With the knowledge that we should be getting our 5-6 serving of veggies a day, breakfast is the one meal most people forget to add them too.  A typical American breakfast consists of eggs, meat, bread, cereal, yogurt, milk, or fruit.  If you add a few tablespoons of my Super Green Smoothie Mix to an entire smoothie, some mung bean sprouts, kale, and spinach, you have a very healthy power packed smoothie that contains at least a couple servings of your much needed greens without the struggle.  Who wants to eat a bowl of herbs and kale for breakfast?  Not me.  It is just not the first thing I crave in the morning.  Maybe some die hard raw vegans would find comfort in a bowl of veggies for breakfast but that would take a lot of determination for the rest of us.

Adding the nutrients to a delightfully creamy smoothie is just the perfect fix.  My kids will never turn down a smoothie even when I sneak in the super greens, in fact, they beg for more.  If there ever is any smoothie left in the blender, I quickly fill up popsicle molds and pop them into the freezer.  The kids think it is a special treat to have a “smoothie pop” after each meal.  They are getting more servings of probiotics, fruit, veggies, and herbs.  It makes a mother feel good to know her children are getting the nutrition they need as they grow.
