Swell Smoothies: Pre-Made for Toddlers April 24 2017, 0 Comments
You're a busy mom so we will keep this simple. Got a picky baby or toddler that doesn't eat? Sensory issues can also lend themselves to food and texture avoidance. Making a large batch of smoothies in advance and freezing them in reusable pouches is a great way to add more nutrition to your toddler's diet and experiment with flavors they already love while sneaking in the good stuff.
Brooke's Recipe is easy to tweak for dairy free, or various fruit/veggie combos.
Pre-Made Toddler Smoothies
2 cups Ripple Milk (high protein pea milk we love from Target)
Two large spoonfuls of yogurt (Greek in this case)
Two spoonfuls of ground Chia seeds
A handful of frozen butternut squash
Two handfuls of frozen blueberries
A scoop of frozen spinach
Two handfuls of frozen strawberries
A handful of sliced frozen peaches
Blend and this recipe should fill up 6-8 reusable frozen pouches. We found ours on Amazon and love them! We need to make carpool and our kids wake up just 20 minutes before arrival time. Grab a pouch, set it in some warm water while getting dressed and it should be thawed enough to enjoy on the way to school.
