The older Isla gets the more aware she is of the food she is eating. She is absolutely fruit obsessed, but isn’t always too keen on eating her veggies on their own. A good way to ensure she is getting enough greens is through these smoothies I make most days. I’ve always enjoyed green smoothies myself and am happy to report that Isla can’t get enough of them either.
Here is an easy recipe:
handful of greens (I usually use whatever is available in my garden – kale, spinach or sorrel)
a couple sprigs of mint
2-4 dates (depending on how sweet you want it)
frozen strawberries and/or blueberries
avocado to make it creamy
