I like to think that we don't sneak things into our children's food... too often. But I just couldn't pass up the opportunity this afternoon when Zosia requested a "pink milkshake" at lunch. I made one for myself, too. It was delicious, and I think that Zosia thought she was getting away with something. But I didn't mind, although I think that to keep up the jig I'm going to have to pretend I don't like her eating it too often.
1/2 up frozen berries (we used cherry, blackberry, raspberry and blueberry mix from TJ's)
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 banana (room temperature)
1 large tablespoon ground flaxseeds (we put this in almost everything around here... oatmeal, muffins. Definitely something worth keeping in the pantry/fridge)
1 tablespoon honey
Blend, and enjoy. I'm already scheming about what other things I can throw in there. How do you like the sound of an avocado shake? I've heard some wonderful stories about tricky Popsicles (thanks, Ella) with fish oils. Maybe that's my next frontier.
