Toddler Smoothie

I have mentioned this before, but my 2 1/2-year old loves smoothies. Every time she sees me making a smoothie she runs over and wants to help make our "smovvies." I have found a recipe that makes just the right amount and that she loves. It includes one of her favorite foods, yogurt tubes. 

Her favorites include; Chobani Greek Yogurt Champions, Trader Joe's Organic Squishers, and Horizon Organic Tuberz. 

Toddler Smoothie

1 Yogurt Tube (or 1/4 cup yogurt)
1/2 Cup Frozen or Fresh Fruit 
1/2 Banana
10 Baby Spinach Leaves
2 T. Vanilla Almond Milk (add more, if needed)
1 tsp. Flax Seeds or Chia Seeds 

Blend until smooth and creamy.

I found a frozen fruit mix that has mangos, strawberries, pineapple, and peaches - all of her favorites. If you use fresh fruit, just add a couple of ice cubes. 

Serve in their favorite cup and know that your little one is enjoying something healthy for them that they will love (adults love this recipe, too).

I could never let you babysit my kids because they'd never want to come home once they saw what an amazing provider you are. This is awesome!
