This is one of the few smoothies that I make the girls where I am not sneaking in extra veggies or big handfuls of green leaf plants.
And come to think about it, maybe that is why it is so-friggin-delicious!
It’s so good you could probably pass this off as a milkshake.
Passing nutritious smoothies off as milkshakes works perfectly well until your little one finally has an actual milkshake. Then prepare yourself for getting the ‘mom, what the h-ll have you been giving me all of these years???’ look.
Not to say that I have ever done this… 🙈
