Our favorite smoothie + secret ingrediant!

One of my favorite ways to get my boys to eat their fruits is in a smoothie! You can hid so many good for you things in a delicious smoothie and they'll never know!

I'm not a huge fan of avocados. But once I found out how good avocados are for you I really wanted to include them more in our diet. Check out 10 heath benefits of avocados. So i've been putting one in our smoothies! Oh my goodness, i don't think i'll ever want to make a smoothie without an avocado ever again! You can't taste it but it gives the smoothie a smoother creamer texture.

Now I can't take credit for this life changing discovery I read about it on Bite of Life blog. It's our chiropractors wife's blog and she has many other delicious and healthy recipes there.
I also froze some and made freezer pops out of the left over smoothie which the boys enjoyed the next day. Once again getting their cancer fighting, heart healthy avocados!

Our favorite smoothie:
  • Avocado
  • Frozen Strawberries
  • Frozen Blueberries
  • Vanilla Yogurt

I missed this post somehow! I love avocados! Hiding it in a smoothie would be a great way to give it to kids who think they don't like it!

When I posted a raw ice cream recipe on FB people suggested to me to add avocados. I haven't made the recipe since then, so I haven't tried it. Good to know you all like it. Sounds yummy :-)

We want DD's 1st food to be Avocado!
