My little boy loves his smoothies. The whole process from chucking in the ingredients, eating the results and then playing (extensively...) with his great love, the blender, is all done with great enjoyment.
Here is our current favourite smoothie for breakfast. It tastes great and is very healthy. It's plant based so dairy free and vegan friendly. It's full of essential goodness like calcium, omega oils, vitamins C, B12 and D2, plus much more!
If you don't eat nuts, just omit the almonds and put in an extra tablespoon of oats.
This amount gives you a thick smoothie for 2 adults and a toddler. For a thinner smoothie, just add more milk.
Oat, almond & fruit breakfast smoothie
1/2 medium-large orange
2 handfuls (about 1/2 cup) of mixed berries (I use frozen)
3-4 tbsps oats
2 tbsps ground almonds
1 tbsp omega oil (or flaxseed oil if that's what you've got)
2 tsps maple syrup
several shakes of lemon juice
2 tbsps chopped parsley
2 cups dairy free milk (use one fortified with calcium and vitamins)
Bung it all in and blend until smooth. Best eaten the same day (never lasts long in our house). Enjoy!
