Now that berry season is in full swing, I am thrilled to be trying out new smoothies with my 9 month old. Just recently we have started to see blueberries pop up in our local market.
Today’s recipe is perfect for busy mornings when you wish you had 8 arms. All I do is pulse whatever berries I have on hand, along with yogurt and oatmeal, and in an instant my little one has a well rounded meal that is completely portable. Even better? He can serve himself.
It’s the little things.
