Minnie has been impossibly picky lately and it has been killing me.
She'll eat crackers and bananas all the live long day, but trying to get her to eat any sort of vegetable has kind of been a struggle since baby food went out the door.
One morning I decided to concoct a smoothie full of TONS of spinach and lots of good fruit too, and Minnie loved it!
Seriously, she'll drink a big cup of it within an hour or two, meaning she gets nearly a cup of spinach in her little belly and I am happy.
Here is typically what I throw in there:
- Two big handfuls of fresh spinach (almost double what you see in the picture above)
- The juice of one orange
- A half cup of frozen berries (Trader Joe's has these at a great price)
- A banana
- A whole strawberry yogurt. Lately I've been using Greek yogurt because it has less sugar.
- About 1/4 cup of milk just to get things flowing
