smoothies for babies

DSC_0159

I’ve been riding the smoothie train for a while now, and I’ve brought the whole family along for the ride! Jack, too, has been loving smoothies! I modified my smoothie recipe here for Jack’s needs/wants, and he has been enjoying every spoonful. I’m sure many babies out there would love this recipe as much as our Jack does!

Ingredients

  • YoBaby Yogurt
  • 1/2 c frozen organic berries (this smoothies was strawberries and blueberries) but you can add any frozen fruit to increase your babies palate!
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 tbsp flax seed meal
  • A little water to help our blender out

Combine all ingredients and blend! Simple! I put the smoothies in jars (pictured above) for the upcoming meals or snacks. If I have a lot left over or I make a double batch, I will freeze some of them in these making for a great frozen treat. Jack might be a little young to fully enjoy the frozen smoothie goodness but he did enjoy the cool push-up on those teething gums. Plus, you know exactly what is in them instead of wondering what that list of ingredients are of those “yogurt tubes”.

I cannot wait to add even more goodness to his smoothies, maybe even hiding fruits or vegetables he might not like as much in the future! Like kale and spinach!! Sneaky mom for the win!

Happy smoothie making, Friends!
