One of the easiest and most favourite of Roo’s treats is a milkshake.
If it’s milky and shaky, she will drink it.
It’s something I feel good about handing over the security gate when I can control the amount of sugar and flavouring and still give her something she thinks is an awesome treat.
The only problem I come across during the gifting of a milkshake is the Two, who are highly offended by the smallest whiff of unfairness. And I’d like to be able to treat them in the same way.
Except for the part where: The Two + Dairy = Nightmare.
The obvious solution is a fruit smoothie!
2 small-medium kiwi fruit
1 cup of rice milk
Seriously easy. Peel and chop the kiwis, chop up the strawberries. Whack them in the blender with the milk and whizz!
Which is totally cool because I have these nifty little cups from Philips Avent that came with my Mini Blender and feeding set. I’ve thrown it in the fridge and the boys will drink it tomorrow!
Banana & Honey Smoothie
OK, so I know the picture at the start has peanut butter and not a honey jar. I was going to make banana and peanut butter smoothies until I realised I didn’t have smooth peanut butter and the crunchy would take the smooth out of smoothie.
1 teaspoon of honey
1.5 cups of rice milk
Roo does DOES like this one, I think because the bananas hide the taste of rice milk (she loves her “real” milk!). I had plenty left over to throw in the fridge for tomorrow’s morning tea.
The Philips Avent MiniBlender & Feeding Set is brilliant! A quick whizz in the blender had these smoothies just right. You could throw steamed veggies for your child just starting solids in the blender and wet mill, put the veggies in the storage cups and feed on the go or at home with ease.
My favourite part of the Miniblender, though, is it’s mini-ness. The base of the blender is only just wider than a coffee mug, which makes life easy for storage and use if you’ve got a smaller kitchen or limited bench space. I love that I can put all my ingredients out on my small bench space as well as have enough room for the blender, the cups and my chopping board.
The Miniblender and Feeding set comes with the base, the blender, the wet mill and 6 stackable storage cups with are for both fridge and freezer.
So, how would you like to win your own Miniblender and Feeding Set (RRP $119.95) PLUS Two decorated cups (RRP $13.95 ea) just like those ones the boys have up there ↑ ?
All you have to do is head on over and tell me in the comments:
If you were a smoothie, what flavour would you be? Would you even be smooth?
