In addition to being a complete meal full of vitamins, protein and fiber, this strawberry yogurt baby smoothie allows my 9 month old to feed himself.
As a new mommy, I am quickly learning the beauty of a few minutes to myself that don’t involve chasing after a crawling baby. As a healthy food blogger, I also take pride in making sure my little one is eating the rainbow in nutrients every day.
My solution? The baby smoothie! And these days, he prefers it! The days of feeding him with a spoon without him grabbing it to throw across the room are slowly winding down. He prefers to be hands on and in lieu of him feeding himself a bowl of oatmeal, this smoothie does the trick.
Your straw is waiting.
Strawberry Yogurt Flax Baby Smoothie
- ½ banana
- ¼ c strawberries
- ¼ c blueberries
- ¼ c oatmeal (iron fortified for baby)
- ¼ c whole milk yogurt
- 1 tsp flax seed meal
- ¼ c water
- Puree all ingredients in a blender and serve. Feel free to add ice if you aren’t using frozen fruit
Also is it ok to use non organic strawberries? Are organic strawberries available in the frozen section?
You can use any berry you wish! Use whatever is on hand! :) Yes Cascadian Farm sells organic frozen berries!
I want to try out the strawberry smoothie but am afraid of the seeds, does your little one have a problem with them?
The seeds get pureed into the smoothie – no problem! Plus, the vitamin C lives in the seeds!
I would love to try some of your smoothie recipes with my baby, but am a little afraid to give him yogurt since he has eczema. Do you think I could make the recipes using breastmilk?
