Green Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie

This Green Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie is one of the best kid friendly recipes I have right now. Though it mostly tastes like an ooey gooey peanut butter and sweet jelly sandwich so the kids really love it, it is also packed full of Iron and Protein and Vitamins so I really love serving it up for them. 
It’s warming up here, which means the kids are ready to get moving! This smoothie is just the ticket when we need something quick, healthy, and filling before we head off to: 
Build Forts with friends. 
Play in the mud. 
Take a run by the river. 
And make a few new friends along the way. 
Plus, this kid friendly green smoothie is pretty much the only way I’m ever going to get my kids to swallow handfuls of raw spinach. Admittedly, I feel the glory of a huge super-mom-victory every time they finish a cup of this power packed smoothie. It’s a small thing, yes, but I’ll take the victories wherever I can!
