If you are concerned about your kids not eating enough vegetables, this recipe will make you feel better. The main ingredients are nutritious veggies…. LOTS of them. The best part? You kids will love it!
Did you know that eating raw vegetables is the best way to get all the nutrients? When you steam, boil or bake vegetables, some of the nutrients are lost. Cooking destroys not only nutrients but also enzymes in the food that are needed to digest those nutrients fully. This is the reason why uncooked foods play such an important roll in your family’s good health.
Eating raw vegetables will give you an amazing boost of energy, help you sleep better, and increase mental clarity too! This is why I like this Kid Friendly Full Of Nutrition Raw Pesto Sauce recipe so much: It’s raw, it’s super nutritious and it’s delicious!
Adding an avocado reduces the need for olive oil and the sauce comes out creamier and a little sweeter. My kids love this pesto recipe. It makes me feel good to know they are getting lots of nutrition and at the same time, they are enjoying a wonderful homemade meal.

Great recipe for the entire family. Full of health benefits!
- 1 ripe hass avocado
- 1 bag fresh baby spinach (about 4–6 cups)
- 10–12 fresh basil leaves
- ¼ cup walnuts (optional)
- 1/4 cup of milk *about
- Olive oil
- Sea salt
- Put ½ bag spinach, basil, avocado and walnuts in the blender first.
- Start adding the milk little by little until everything is well blended to a creamy sauce texture. Add a little olive oil too. You need to add the milk little by little to achieve the right consistency. All you really need is a few tablespoons of olive oil and a little bit of milk. As you make the sauce, add the rest of the spinach.
- Season with sea salt according to taste.

I want to try this recipe, wondering how many servings (children and adult) would this likely make?
Also wondering if you heat it or eat it cold?

Hi, thank you for your comment. It makes about 4-5 servings. Yes, what I do is cook the pasta and then once I drain it, I right away mix it with the pesto sauce. The sauce will be a little warm then and perfect to serve. Hope this helps!
