Yummy Toddler Smoothie!


Yummy Toddler Smoothie!

So Ethan's been teething real bad...AGAIN! Poor guy, can't catch a break. Its his canines now, which I hear can be the worst! Good thing it's his last set of teeth until his 2 year old molars. He's handling the pain pretty well (he's such a trooper), but I can't get much food in him. I know he's hungry and all he wants is milk or as he calls it "gilk!" He's borderline obsessed? I was looking through "The Baby Book" by Doctor Sears. I love this family of doctors! They pretty much match perfectly with a lot of my attachment parenting style. They're big on breastfeeding (if you can), later scheduled vaccines, healthy eating, no crying it out...etc. Anyways, I was looking through it once again, and came across an AWESOME smoothie recipe! Its perfectly balanced loaded with great nutrients! It's a sneaky and healthy way to get food in Ethan that he would otherwise shun. Ha! Been there tried that! Remember the tofu incident? He HATED it! Don't blame him really. I don't like it either. This even has tofu in it and you can't even tell. I gave it to him and he loved it! This was totally a "ah ha! I am a good mom moment!I was very proud of myself. Joel and I tried it and seriously it was pretty good. Okay, enough rambling here is the recipe:
Sears Family Smoothie

  • 2-3 cups milk or soy or rice beverage 
  • 1 cup of yogurt
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup other favy frozen fruit
  • 4 tbsp. flax seed meal
  • 4 ounces of tofu
  • 2 tbsp. peanut butter (healthy kind)
  • cinnamon or nutmeg to taste
  • 1-2 servings of choc or vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp of honey if you want it sweeter? 

Blend until smooth. Serve immediately. 
I cut these ingredients in half and it made plenty! It kind of tasted like a peanut butter, banana, and jelly sand which-ish?!? Enjoy!
