Kid’s need fat in their diet! I came up with this smoothie recipe because I was finding that my 3 1/2 year old was always hungry around morning tea time (9-10am) and the traditional piece of fruit just wasn’t cutting it. Coconut cream and avocado are great sources of fat for kids and a huge cup of this is usually enough to keep them good until lunch. There’s no way to mess this one up.
serves about 2
2 frozen bananas (I buy a bunch when they are ripe and cheap, peel them and keep them in the freezer so they’re always ready)
1/3 cup coconut cream or coconut milk
1 tablespoon of carob powder
1 cup of rice milk (more or less depending on how thick you like it)
blend and serve 🙂
