Baby Smoothie

baby smoothies

I don’t normally drink my vegetables, since eating them tastes so good and fills me up more.  But lately I’ve been making fruit & veggie smoothies for Lucy – partly because it’s so easy, and partly because she loves anything that requires using a straw.  Today for lunch she had a spinach and avocado smoothie.  Sounds kind of gross, but Lucy couldn’t get enough, and both Tyler and I agreed it tasted like a rich, creamy treat.

Aaaaand…forget the straw, let’s just get this smoothie down already!
