Mango, Blueberry, Banana, Avocado and Spinach Smoothie

Smoothies are a great way to get essential nutrients and vitamins. You can hide all sorts of good veggies, that your little one might not eat otherwise, in a smoothie. This smoothie is jam packed with yummy and healthy goodness for your little one. It's got calcium, iron, folate, potassium, antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins A, C and D. I don't give my little one juice, so smoothies are a great and super healthy alternative. You can serve this smoothie as a "pudding" by adding a little more banana and a little less milk, or you can give it to your little one in a straw cup. If you don't want to use milk you can use a little water or plain yogurt. This is for little ones 10+ months.



Here's what you need for 1 serving:
1/4 cup organic blueberries
1/4 cup chopped mango
1/4 of an organic banana
1/4 of a diced avocado
1/4 cup chopped organic spinach
1/4 cup organic whole milk (or water or plain greek yogurt)
pinch or 2 of ground cinnamon

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Serve and enjoy!
