We fixed the glitch.
One of my favorite lines from office space. My husband and I quote that movie all the time.
In this post, I’m not referring to a glitch in the payroll system; I’m referring to a glitch in our kids’ diets. You see, half of them (sometimes 75% of them) aren’t down with the veggies. They get pushed to the side, covered up or tossed on an unsuspecting sibling’s plate.
The other day, as I was taking a leisurely stroll through Costco with only two children in tow, I saw that the Zico coconut water was $4 off. I’ve tried coconut water before, and honestly, not impressed. However, I have heard how glorious it is in smoothies and wanted to give it a fair assessment. So, as you do at Costco, you make a commitment when you buy one of their ginormous bargains.
I was really happy to see that one serving of coconut water has as much potassium as a banana. I have super restless legs during pregnancy (annoying) and supposedly, potassium helps alleviate that. Win win. I ran some test projects through our Blend Tec and was VERY HAPPY that three of our children (one wouldn’t try) LOVED the result. So, here it is…
(This makes a few decent servings)
- 1.5 c Zico coconut water
- 2 bananas
- 1-2 cups frozen pineapple
- 2-3 cups raw organic spinach
- 1/2 cup raw oats (optional)
