Food for thought…
It’s that time of year – it’s hot outside, the kids are home and bored, and they want to eat you out of house and home. The perfect summer solution – smoothies! They cool you off, are so versatile, are super filling and everyone loves them. My new favorite ingredient to add…avocado. I know – if you haven’t tried it you’re thinking of how wrong this all sounds. Avocados in a drink?? But I promise, the addition of avocado in this smoothie gives it the perfect texture and sneaks heart healthy fats and brain boosting powers into your little ones without them even noticing! In fact, take a look below at all of the healthy goodness packed into one smoothie. Enjoy!
