today i made this fun little healthy treat for the kids. it’s basically just a made-up recipe, and i don’t typically measure when i’m cooking. (not that i’m against measuring, just not how i roll, usually…) anyways. my kids LOVE bananas sometimes, and other times their interest begins to wane. lately they have been more disinterested, but this? this they loved.
BANANA AVOCADO SMOOTHIE:
1/2 an avocado
freshly squeezed lemon juice. (give 1/2 a lemon a good squeeze)
a splash of apple juice
a mitt-full of ground flax seed
honey to sweeten
stick it all in the blender. blend until smooth.
the kids liked this both in a cup with straws, OR in a little bowl with spoons. it has the consistency of yogourt.
you could add milk, soymilk, almond milk (which is my new fave after reading that soy milk is not as great as once was believed. anyone else hear this??? is it true?)
anyways, i just wanted to share a very yummy and healthy treat that the kids love. they just finished a whole blender-full and asked me for more. sure, why not?
