A Secret...

posted on: June 20, 2012

 I have been sneaking in lots, and I mean lots of healthy greens and fruits in River's diet. 

 Besides the organic squeezies, I felt like I exhausted every source that helped me add variety in her diet. Every attempt was met with a "no, no, no", then a tight lip, and of course the messy and quick spoon swat with her little hand. So, when Peter and I received a blender as an anniversary present from my mom, we were beyond thrilled. 

    I decided to add fun to operation "secret smoothie", and host a indoor picnic. With River's help we threw down a couple of vintage quilts and invited stuffed animal horsey, and puppet doggy (her little house friends) and had a picnic right in the center of our living room. She not only drank her sippy cup full of smoothie, but she also drank mine. Sweet success.

The "secret smoothie" recipe:

  • 1 cup of organic blueberry yogurt
  • 7 stalks of celery
  • 1 tablespoon of organic honey
  • 1 banana
  • 13 strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of chopped kale (not pictured)
  • Ice
*note: I chopped all of my veggies and fruits a little before blending. 

The yogurt bowl, mason jar, and biodegradable straws are from Fishs Eddy.
