As the mother of TWO beautiful baby girls, I'm discovering how to make "Ashley's kitchen" into "Mama's kitchen." You know, like the kind in old movies and nostalgic country songs. Mama's kitchen - where everyone gathers to enjoy good food, weekend brunches, family dinners, and make lasting memories. That is my destination, and this is my journey.
I love this smoothie because it combines some of Annalyn's favorite flavors, while giving her calcium, potassium, fiber, antioxidants, and all around goodness! While the yogurt and banana can be constipating in large amounts, the pear and blueberry help offset that (fellow parents, you know how important the bowel regulation becomes - crazy how much I consider that when planning her meals!).
Pearberry Yogurt Smoothie
- 1 medium ripe pear
- 1 medium ripe banana
- 1/2 c. blueberries
- 1/2 c. yogurt
- baby cereal as needed to achieve desired thickness
1. Begin by washing the fruit, peeling the banana, and peeling/coring the pear. Cute the banana and pear in to large chunks, then place in a blender or food processor.
2. Blend slightly to mash, then add the blueberry and yogurt. Give it another quick blend and you're done! Add baby cereal as needed to adjust thickness.
