Getting my two-year-olds to eat veggies is a breeze. Said no one. Ever. Now that they think they are in control, they like to express their independence, which sometimes includes refusing the food I have prepared for them. Luckily, I can get them to eat almost anything if I blend it into a smoothie.
Here’s my go-to smoothie recipe which is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for even the pickiest of kids.
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or coconut milk)
- 1 frozen banana
- ½ avocado
- 2 handfuls of spinach (fresh)
- ½ tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp nut butter
- 1-3 ice cubes
Blend until smooth. If there is any leftover, I will freeze it into popsicle molds to give to the girls later.
Note: I give my kids a probiotic and liquid vitamin D every morning and I will often mix these into their drinks.
