I have always loved making and drinking smoothies. You can add whatever you want and it's an easy way to get most of your fruit/veggies for the day in one amazingly packed drink!
Wanting the same benefits for my little girl, I have been making smoothies for her lunch everyday, for the past week. She loves the sweetness it provides in taste and doesn't know that I've snuck in a few other things in there too. That is the main reason why I love smoothies for myself and her, I can add different fruits and veggies and mask the taste.
Here is the recipe.
- 1 handful of spinach/kale leaves
- 1/3 banana
- 1 tbsp plain greek yogurt
- 2 inch cucumber with the skin on; chop into 1/4 inch pieces
- 1/2 chopped celery stock
- 2 tbsp avocado
- 1 handful of frozen berries
- 1-2 tbsp finely ground oats
- 2 splashes of water
Using a blender, blend everything together until you get a smooth consistency (beware of any hidden chunks, that could be hazardous to baby)
