Smoothie Love

I figured out something that Mason will always consume some of....Smoothies! I can put anything in them; carrots, banana, protein powder, yogurt, you name it. I got the idea to try making him a smoothie when I had tons of cooked carrots I made for him that he wouldn't touch. I put a bunch of them in the blender with yogurt, banana and some Amazing Grass powder. I think it is something about the straw and drinking from a real glass. It's different and that makes it interesting to him I suppose. He takes sips from the straw and goes "mmmmmmm". I'm going to have to experiment with some recipes and see which he likes best. I figure its a great way to get him to eat some vegetables because he won't eat them straight. We'll see how long he likes them. His current M.O. is he'll love it today hate it tomorrow.


  1. i think it's the straw that he loves

  2. My son isn't a picky eater but I did get him to eat a lot of food at once in smoothies. His fave recipe:

    strawberries, blueberries, raspberries (antioxidants, fiber)
    yogurt (calcium, protein, probiotics)
    almond butter (fat, calcium, protein)
    flax oil (omegas, fat)
    Emergen-C for kids fizzy powder (multi-vit, fizz)

    Good luck!
