I've been wanting to make Sweet P a smoothie for awhile now, but just hadn't gotten around to doing it. But today was the day. And let me tell you, she loved it. I was a little nervous because she doesn't like a few of the things I put in it as stand alone foods. But after today, we might be trying sweet potatoes and apples again really soon!
I tasted it and it definitely doesn't have to be just a baby smoothie, it's great as an adult smoothie, too! So what's in it?
What you need:
1/2 c organic plain yogurt (I still can't find whole fat, so I use low-fat 2%)
1 frozen cube pureed sweet potato (organic)
1 frozen slice of steamed apple (organic)
1 tsp agave nectar (organic)
dash of cinnamon
scoop of probiotics
My blender was occupied by hummus, so I made her smoothie in a mini food processor (the sweet potato didn't crush all the way, but it wasn't a big deal). You can also use frozen fruit you buy at the store. I just happened to have cubes of pureed food that she won't eat.
As you can see, she drank it right up! She didn't finish the entire glass so I put it in the fridge and got it back out for lunch. It was thicker so I fed it to her with a spoon, so if your baby isn't straw ready...use a spoon!
