During the spring and summer when greens are perfectly in season, why not start your day with some greens in a Rainbow Smoothie?
Kids love the concept of eating the rainbow. I recently served this delicious smoothie as part of Rainbow Day programming to promote fresh fruit and vegetable consumption by kids. The verdict? Thumbs up!

-Orange: 1 carrot
-Yellow: ½ banana plus 1 teaspoon lemon juice

-Blue/Purple: 1/4 cup blackberries
