    If Rachael Ray is the self-proclaimed Burger Queen then I am the self-proclaimed Smoothie Queen. We drink them all year round and from the minute my little guy could start solids, he has been hooked. In an effort to eat the rainbow, we love using seasonal ingredients to change the flavor throughout the year. Fall is time for pumpkins, apples, cranberries and more.

    Recently I discovered the glory that is Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce. I’m a little embarrassed it took me this long to make homemade cranberry sauce but after learning the health benefits of whole cranberries and falling in love with the vibrant, jewel-toned color and tart, tangy sweetness – I am a believer.

    My little guy loves all flavors of Stonyfield YoBaby and YoToddler yogurt but this recipe works just as well with Whole Milk Plain.

    1. I just found your site via Pinterest! Love the smoothie ideas! Going to try them out with my almost 11 month twins. They will probably go crazy for them! Just curious if you used a normal straw sippy or is it a bigger straw? The smoothies probably aren’t very thick, right? Thanks!

      1. I’m so glad you found me! I use a sippy cup with a built-in straw. He is just now getting the hang of a cup without a lid but I still have to watch. :) And no, the smoothie is not very thick and if it’s too thick for some reason just add more milk or water. Enjoy!!
