Mom, does this have greens in it?

Megan in the way to school: “Mom, does this have greens in it? Because it doesn’t taste like it does. And it tastes like raspberries and banana, but I don’t feel the seeds. Usually I have to put the straw back farther in my mouth when I try to drink a raspberry green smoothie, or even a regular raspberry smoothie.”
 
Me smiling: Yes, it has greens in it, but not enough to cover the red of the raspberries or take over the flavor. (What I didn’t tell her: Kale and beet greens to be exact, and the beet greens had some red in the stems which I’m sure helped a great deal. And there was also my now usual 3 T. of chia seed meal as well. Score!) The raspberries were frozen maybe they blend better that way, plus I blended it longer than usual because I added that second banana after tasting it.
 
Megan has become so picky (age 11) that being able to get her to drink 12 oz of green smoothie on the way to school is a huge accomplishment. I was smiling for awhile!
 
I hope I can repeat it for her and her sister this weekend!
