The Best Green Homemade Mac and Cheese Recipe

Guac-and-Cheese-on-Toddler-PlatesIf your kids are young, get them used to eating green foods. We made lunch a green food day with guac mac and cheese, steamed broccoli and edamame. I make it a point to embrace the green as much as possible.  There are definitely times when this backfires, but I keep trying.

If your kids don’t normally eat green foods, maybe start with a little green and work your way up to get them used to the idea. This meal is so yummy, you may find your child makes a green exception. And, if not, than more for you! Yes, it’s that yummy for you too.

How to Make This Healthy Macaroni and Cheese Green

Grab some fresh or frozen spinach and put it in the food processor until finely chopped. Add avocado and blend some more. My secret weapon to always have avocado on hand, I buy the Wholly Guacamole from Costco and just use that. I’ve never been able to keep ripe avocados in the house. They are always not ripe or they always go bad. There is no in between for us.

Add avocado or guacamole to your food processor and blend with spinach to produce a creamy green sauce. Voila!
