If you hear a little boy clapping and chanting "mooooooomie!!!" chances are there's some smoothie making going on at our house. And this week, we finally tried green smoothies!!
Our ingredients of choice: Baby spinach, milk (whole is divine, although not what I used this time), and frozen strawberries, bananas, and blueberries.
Look at all that healthy goodness!
Next comes the milk...
And here's the blended product!
Thick and delicious. We couldn't even tell the spinach was there! I'll add more and more spinach each time to test out a "max" amount. What a fabulous way to get raw vegetables into Squishy's diet (and mine)! I find it challenging to feed him raw veggies otherwise, because if they're not cooked they're too much for him to chew.
Why haven't I tried this before? How do you get raw veggies into your toddler's diet?

P.S. A general life update will be coming soon...this pregnancy still has me pretty out of it. I'm 13 weeks today, so the end (of the 1st trimester!) is in sight! I'm going to hopefully hear the baby's heartbeat for the 1st time today at my midwife's office (YAAAAAYYYY!!!).
