Teens tend to be tired and stressed out from their hectic lives, and they don't often take the time to refuel with nutritious food. To keep them healthy, teens need superfoods that can be eaten in quick and easy ways that adapt to their busy lifestyle. A green dragon smoothie is a perfect way for teens to get a boost of antioxidants while on the go. This is our favorite smoothie, which gets "Super Yums" from toddlers to teens.
GREEN DRAGON SMOOTHIE
½ cup green grapes
1 medium orange, peeled
½ banana, peeled
1/2 slice lime with the rind
1-inch slice of pineapple with the core
1 cup of ice
¼-inch chunk of fresh ginger, peeled
1-2 cups of baby spinach, packed (more if you can fit it in your blender!)
Place all ingredients in the blender in the order listed. Blend until smooth. Sip away and don't forget to give yourself a green dragon mustache!
