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?!
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 3/4 cup mixed frozen berries
- 2 cups lite coconut milk (can add more if desired)
- 1 tablespoon coconut butter (optional, but highly recommended!)
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds and or/flax seed meal (optional)
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Can add more coconut milk or water to thin to desired consistency.
