I made smoothies the other day and my 18m loved them. My problem is it was a yoplait frozen one. I was wondering what ideas you ladies have for good smoothies for a picky toddler. She likes more savory than sweet but likes berries. Oh and she avoids greens.

I am thinking of adding these to her snacks, because she will not eat some days because she is teething and has 4 teeth working on coming in all at the same time.

TIA for any ideas.

ETA she is peanut allergy

I make smoothies with whatever I have on hand really. Most any fruit is good in a smoothie. I always keep frozen blueberries on hand and frozen bananas. Mine and my kids favorite is a banana, a cup of cherries, some strawberries, a half cup of soy milk, a tablespoon of peanut butter, and a teaspoon of cinnamon. It's soooo yummy!

That sounds so good I wonder if it would be good without peanut butter. She is allergic.

Re: Smoothies

Yes the above recipe would taste good w/o peanut butter! I don't remember if I've ever tried putting peanut butter in smoothies but almost any combination frozen fruit would work well with some milk (almond/coconut milk etc. if you don't do dairy)

Re: Smoothies

I always start with Kiefer (but I have the kiefer grains and make it myself with raw goats milk so that might not work for you) then add whatever fruit I have. I also throw in fresh veggies, (zuc, squash, carrots) stuff that the kids don't really like plain and they never even notice its in there.

Re: Smoothies

My boys love the blueberry one I make- it's one cup each of frozen blueberries (I buy them fresh on sale and wash and freeze), yogurt, and oj, and one banana.

It isn't really strong- it mostly tastes like blueberries and bananas.

That's good. She has never had oj, she had issues with the citric acid in baby food so we have avoided it all together. ( she is my complicated baby

Re: Smoothies

You could add almond cashew or sun butter in place of peanut butter. By adding the nut butters you are adding a little more protein.
