This is brilliant! My two-year-old son refuses to eat anything green, but he sure does love smoothies! I added strawberries, peaches, a banana, spinach, and peas. He just drank two glasses of it! I even skipped the sweetener... I figured the yogurt (I used vanilla) and fruit would sweeten it enough. He loves it! Thank you!
I have always wondered if this would taste good, but didn't want to waste my precious fruit only to be grossed out and dump it...but it was great! I made this for myself, no toddlers in my life yet, with spinach, pineapple, and frozen strawberries, then again with green beans in place of spinach. Its a weird brownish-purple color, but it tasted great! Absolutely normal smoothie! From now on, my smooties with always be a funky color, but at least I'm getting those extra veggies thanks to you! :)
I make this for my toddler daily now and he often requests it if I forget! I don't typically use artificial sweetener of any kind as there is plenty in the yogurt and fruit, although occasionally I'll throw in a few dark chocolate chips for a treat. I use Greek yogurt instead of regular for 4x the protein. Its crazy how much more protein is in Greek yogurt vs. regular!
OMG. I can't get my toddler to eat any veggies (... and trust me I have tried anything). I just made a batch of these smoothies with milk, fresh banana, fresh strawberries, peach yogurt, frozen peas, and frozen carrots, and a hint of honey. They are sooo yummy! I can't wait for Aidan to wake up from his nap so he can try it ...... my prediction is that he'll slurp it down. I'll let you know :)
