Veggie Baby Food - Peach Mango Smoothie
I am still amazingly surprised that Veggie Baby eats Greek yogurt. Even I can't have it unless there's honey or something to counter the sourness of it. All she needs is a spoon of fruit mixed in and she's right to go.
Recently I gave her a tub to play with to keep her quiet while we were waiting for a meal at a cafe. I thought she'd like to feel how cold it was and maybe roll it around a bit. Instead she bit through the top and sucked the yogurt out from the resulting hole. Like it was the most delicious thing she'd ever tasted. Crazy.
This recipe is a bit fun, because it's pretty much what I would have in a smoothie, just a little thicker for a spoon. She loved it.
I even cut corners by using canned fruit - canned mango can be very useful!
For one serving:
2 canned peach halves
2 canned mango pieces
1.5 tbs greek yogurt (or more if you have a brave baby)
1/2 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp flaxseed meal
milk of your choice if you think it's too thick.
