Spencer Cooks: Smoothie

There are easily a million smoothie recipies on the internet and I am not trying to say the Spencer is some sort of toddler food savant. One of my favorite things I have from my childhood is the recipe card from the first recipie I “invented,” the Meat Roll-Up. Essencially, it was wrapping a pickle in lunchmeat with optional cheese. Genius! I still eat this. I loved that my mom kept the recipe card in her box with the other real recipes. I thought since Spencer created this smoothie on his own, I would document it here. The measurements are guesstimates – you can just substitute have toddler add yogurt with a spoon until he gets bored.

 Spencer Smoothie

Blend together:

2 Ripe Bananas, sliced (banana bread ripe)
20 blackberries
3 guavas (halved and scooped)
(about) 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
(about) 1/2 cup milk

And add more milk if too thick. I used a measuring cup and an immersion blender, but a regular blender would work great too. We make a great team. I chop and blend. He selects the fruit, scoops, “measures” and pours.

    I jumped on the smoothie bandwagon a month or so ago.

    I had wild and crazy dreams of finally getting Kadyn to eat vegetables. HAHAHAHAHA!

    I made him one with carrots and it was ‘the most delicious thing’ he’s ever tasted.

    Made him one with spinach, won’t touch ANY kind of smoothie. At all.

    I have the most fickle child ever.

    Also I have never eaten guava. What’s that like?

    I don’t love guava and probably wouldn’t have it in the house except my in-laws have a tree and Spencer loves to “harvest” (pick them up of the ground) them and he also loves eating them. The taste is sort of tropical and sort of kiwi/pear-ish. They are really weird looking.

    I LOVE it! What a great idea to save their recipes. I actually would have never thought of that! The smoothie looks really good and we might just have to try it here. I am sure my girls will love it!
