Baby's First Spinach Smoothie
Baby’s First Spinach Smoothie is packed with spinach, avocado, mango, banana, oats, chia seeds and coconut milk. This nutritious and delicious smoothie is easy to make and perfect for babies (and toddlers) 9 months and up!
Servings: 4 4-oz servings
- 1/2 banana
- 1/4 avocado, peel removed
- 1/4 cup spinach, packed
- 1 cup frozen mango
- 1 tbsp old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 tsp chia seeds
- 1/4 cup canned coconut milk full fat variety
- 3-4 ice cubes
- ½-1 cup water
Place all of the ingredients and 1/2 cup of water into a blender.
Blend the ingredients together by using the smoothie function on your blender or high speed for at least 60 seconds. If the smoothie is too thick, then add the additional water to the smoothie and blend until incorporated. For most babies, you will want a pretty thin smoothie so they can suck it through the straw. Save the extra thick smoothies until they get a little older.
Pour smoothie into a sippy cup and enjoy!
Age: 8 months and up (or when baby can suck through a straw)
Storage: you can store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 24 hours or you can freeze in a freezer-safe container for up to 1 month. To thaw, simply place the container in the fridge the night before you want to serve it.
