My 10 month old loves smoothies and has been enjoying them for several months now. Typically, they are a great way for mommy to buy some time while baby feeds himself breakfast.
On a good day, smoothie time can provide mommy with 10-15 minutes of freedom to drink a cup of coffee or, gasp, prepare her own breakfast.
All of that changed with today’s Avocado Blueberry Smoothie. It was gone in 2 minutes. Literally. I turned away to pour myself a cup of coffee and by the time I turned around it was half gone.
If you have never added avocado to a smoothie, I encourage you to give it a try. The rich, creamy fruit provides a smooth texture to any smoothie and fills your body with heart-healthy fats. For more on the health benefits of avocado, check out my Avocado Egg Sandwich recipe.
