My toddler loves smoothies and this is one of her favorites. I think the addition of vanilla ups the decadence factor and it almost tastes more like a milk shake than a smoothie. The not so secret “secret” ingredients are the addition of spinach and flaxseeds both of which are undetectable with everything else going on.
This is great for breakfast, snacks, or a healthier alternative on one of those days when your toddler hasn’t eaten well and you need to sneak in a few more calories before bedtime.
This recipe yields about 3 cups and is best if consumed within 12 hours.
