Toddler Savvy Smoothies: For Healthy Weight Gain

toddlersmoothiesmeme

Designed to pack fat, protein and calories into your little one!  I created these smoothies based on advice from a nutritionist when I was trying to pack weight onto my tiny little one some years ago. These are the recipes I offer up to the clients I’m gently and gradually helping to night wean. If they are worried about total daytime calorie consumption, we add in smoothies to what they are already doing.

Berries do not stay nice in the fridge more than a few hrs. Make the entire recipe if you will share it. If just for your kiddo, make half of the recipe.

Chocolate Banana NutButter/Sunbutter Smoothie

            1 cup milk of choice (goat, unsweetened coconut or hemp)

            3 tablespoons cocoa powder

            1 heaping teaspoon nutbutter or sunflower butter.

            1/2 frozen banana

            Ice cubes or crushed ice chips – one cup. 

            Smidge of vanilla extract or bean. 

 

Berry Avocado Smoothie:

1 Avocado

1 Cup Frozen Berries 

1 Cup Hemp Milk or Coconut Milk

1 Tsp honey or maple syrup.

 

Morning Oatmeal Smoothie: 

1 cup ice

            1/2 cup frozen raspberries

1/2 cup plain yogurt (goat, coconut preferred)

            1 banana

            1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats, cooked

            1 tablespoon honey or maple.

            1 cup coconut water 

 

Berry Spinach Omega Smoothie

(Iron from the spinach is absorbed well by mixing it with the Vit. C from berries!) 

    2 cups loosely packed spinach (about two handfuls)

    2 cups frozen mixed berries (if cherries, use more honey)

    1 cup plain yogurt (goat, coconut preferred)

    1 cup milk (unsweetened hemp or coconut or other))

    1 tablespoon honey

    1 tablespoon flax oil, olive oil or borage oil if you can get it. 

    Never put fish oil in your blender. It will not ever smell good after that!

 

Chocolate Pea Protein Smoothie

Any Fruit 1 cup

1 Cup milk of choice

2Tablespoons Spirutein Chocolate Pea Protein Powder. or other Pea Protein powder. Strawberry flavor is also good. 

 

Love,

Moorea
