With every pregnancy, unfortunately, I’m quite anemic. I know eating lots of dark leafy greens is a great way to add iron to my diet. So for the past few weeks, I’ve increased the number of green smoothies I’ve been drinking. With three little ones, whirling up a quick smoothie allows me to get in my greens while not losing a lot of time creating a big and fussy meal. With Z always by my side in the kitchen, she’s discovered that she’s a huge fan of green smoothies. She loves picking out her favorite fruit and putting it into the blender. She also enjoys pressing the button to start the blender. I love that she’s getting a ton of healthy vitamins and nutrients. She loves the taste!
I love how simple and basic the recipe is. Just follow the simple recipe of 2 cups liquid, 2 cups leafy greens, and 3 cups fruit. It’s foolproof! I don’t have to worry about adding too much fruit or too little liquid. It’s completely customizable so I can get a new taste everyday and never get bored. With so many options, you’re bound to find a combinations that works for your toddler’s tastes. Whatever we don’t finish in the morning can be stored in the fridge and enjoyed later on during lunch.
Does your toddler love green smoothies? What do you put in your smoothies?
