It's no secret that toddlers can be picky, weird little eaters. B loves grilled cheese, macaroni and cheese, but won't touch a piece of cheese if his life depended on it. And just when you think they LOVE something, the next time around they look at it like it's rat poison. Covered in dirt, rat poison. And if it's green and leafy, forget it. Thankfully, B thinks the blender ("dender!") is a pretty cool thing, and is more than happy to chug (literally, he will down a cup and a half in a minute flat) anything that gets magically obliterated in it. This is our go-to green smoothie. It is super quick (hello, two ingredients), and surprisingly delicious (even I was skeptical at first) - he will happily slurp cup upon cup of this green goodness.
I prefer a ripe Barlett pear, but a Bosc works well too.
Do you have a favourite smoothie recipe for sneaking greens, or other healthiness, into your little one? I'd love to hear what works for you!
ps Happy weekend all! It is sunny and 30C here in Ottawa - halle-sweet-lujah!
