This smoothie recipe made with avocado, blueberry, oatmeal and flax is ideals for babies, toddlers and kids!
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.
