Berry Coconut Smoothie

When it comes to food, my little toddler is beyond picky. Solid vegetables? Forget that. Fruit? Eh, she likes certain fruits, but I always feel like she doesn’t eat enough. She’s also been cutting a ton of teeth at once so she’s not been a fan of chewing a lot of foods lately.

So, I’ve been making a lot of smoothies in this house and thankfully, she loves them! Smoothies are a great way to sneak extra fruits and veggies into your picky eater’s belly. This coconut berry smoothie has been our favorite for the past couple of weeks. As soon as I pull the blender out, Maddie runs to my feet and runs around the kitchen until I finally hand her her own little sippy bottle. She usually ends up coming back to my glass for more!

This smoothie is everything I love about a smoothie! It’s full of coconut flavor from the coconut milk and coconut butter. I buy my coconut butter on Amazon. It’s a little pricey, but oh so worth it! I also recommend using a frozen banana. If you have never tried this, blending a frozen banana for a few minutes turns into this creamy ice cream-like texture. And who wouldn’t love this light and pretty berry pink color?!

  1. Thank you very much for sharing this delightful recipe. I tried your recipe today without the optional ingredients and it turned out great – just out of the world :) It has a really addictive taste!

  2. This smoothie looks great. I always try to throw a lot of greens in mine for an extra veggie dose but sometimes you just want something pretty. This one fits that bill for sure. I haven’t given my little one a smoothie just yet but I am counting down the days. She isn’t great at sucking threw a straw or drinking without a bottle.
