This produce-packed, dairy-free green smoothie is made with an adult- and kid-friendly blend of bananas, pineapple, spinach, grapes, and cucumber. It’s also enriched with dairy-free yogurt, which makes this creamy beverage a digestive health powerhouse. Probiotics in the yogurt work synergistically with the naturally-occurring prebiotics and enzymes in the fruits and vegetables. I don’t know about you, but my stomach can use a little extra help as the holidays set in.
