Strawberry Banana Flaxseed "Milkshake" Smoothies
Although I am a fan of green smoothies, they haven't sounded appetizing since I've been expecting.
I often forget that simple fruit smoothies are still a nutritious snack, breakfast or dessert that make things that aren't very exciting on their own into a yummy treat! Frozen bananas are the key to a naturally sweetened smoothie that has the taste and consistency of a milkshake without the sugar or fat. This morning we had Strawberry Banana Flaxseed Smoothies that had a carton of strawberry yogurt and milk/water to help it to blend into drinkability.
As you can see my 17 month old loved it! In a few months, after baby O is born and the summer months are in full swing I plan on adding back the greens (probably spinach) for more nutrition!
