Notes on Pumpkin Puree: you can also use 1/2 cup of pure pumpkin puree that is found in the baking aisle for this recipe.Notes on Coldness: While both of my girls devoured smoothies from around 8 months on, some babies get a little jolted when drinking super cold beverages. If that is the case with your little one, you can skip the ice in this smoothie for a more ‘juice’ like drink or let the smoothie sit out on the counter for 15 minutes to warm up a little.Toddler Option: for a sweeter smoothie for toddlers, you can add in 2 teaspoons of agave nectar, honey (for kiddos over the age of 1) or maple syrup.Age: from about 8+ months through adultsYield: 2 baby/toddler servingsStorage: Will last overnight in fridge but will need to be shaken to re-mix all ingredients
