Why am I not surprised to hear that CharlieD's kids are incorrigible? Keep feeding them some of the old country, they will come around to its taste, I guarantee.

Green smoothies:

1 bag of spinach
1 cup frozen fruit (give or take)
1 banana
Honey or agave (liquid sweetner is better)
1/4 cup oatmeal (optional)
I make these in my nearly 30 year old Hamilton Beach home blender. Now I know that if I want to do tougher greens, that I will definitely need to purcahse a more hight powered blender. But for right now, this is doing me just fine.

If it is too green for you then try cutting back on the greens and increase the frozen fruit, then change the ratio of greens to fruit as you adjust.
I cook what I like because I like what I cook!

Used to not like it but with I have discovered when you grill or kebab the veggies it becomes delicious:tomatoes (coz of my Mexican heritage, we cannot have a meal without it),zuchini,potatoes and even fruits will do nicely...seasoned with your fave spices: cumin,peppers, salt etc will definitely take away the bitter taste that veggies sometimes have.

You may also try to mix a bit of veggie with sweet ingredients, i.e. making a carrot/orange soup, or cucumber/mint gaspacho.
