The fine folks over at Libby’s sent me a couple of recipes for smoothies (Tutti Frutti and Double Peach). What perfect timing — making smoothies for my little one is on my To-Do list. Thanks to Libby (Twitter | Facebook), I’m also giving away an assortment of Libby’s Fruit and Acrylic Hurricane glasses.
I made the Tutti Frutti smoothie over the weekend. Because the toddler is allergic to dairy, I used So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt (dairy and soy free). The verdict: the toddler loves it, which is practically a miracle because he is a very picky eater. That’s why he lost weight in almost every single weigh-in since his nasal feeding tube was removed three months ago. Two of my three other kids also like the Tutti Frutti smoothie. Next weekend, I plan on making the Double Peach smoothie with So Delicious Coconut Milk and Yogurt.
