Makayla loves to be involved in the kitchen with me and now she is really into making "YouTube videos"...even when there is nothing recording her...all she needs is a mirror! This morning after we made a breakfast shake, she wanted to make one for a video so we changed it up to Strawberry and here is what we came up with.
1/4 banana, cut into pieces before freezing (for easier blending)
1/3 cup almond milk
1 Tbsp organic peanut butter (important to use organic when you can as peanuts are heavy with pesticide use)
Kids need good bugs for their belly to boost their immune systems and help them maintain a healthy weight and combat sugar intake, so adding a probiotic powder to a yummy drink is a great way to help your child's gut health. Collagen protein helps not only with muscles and joints but it also aids in repairing gut lining. So if you have a child with digestive issues, suspected gluten intolerance or stomach upset, adding collagen can be extremely useful in repairing their stomach environment. Limiting dairy can be useful with kids with allergies, digestive distress or skin issues, that is why we often choose almond or cashew milk instead of cows milk for our smoothies.
