Yesterday was a rainy Sunday and with more rain expected later this week, you might need something fun to do with the kids.
Since we’ve been stuck inside all weekend, we have been eating all of the junk food! Pizza, pasta, candy, popcorn… you name it, we’ve had it. So this morning after realizing that this weekends activities and diet were both a wash (literally). I’ve come to the conclusion that we need something healthy in our lives.
Cash loves kitchen activities that he can help with, even though he only really eats chicken nuggets, fries, veggie/fruit pouches, bananas, pizza, goldfish and chips. (I know. I’m Mom of the year.)
Anyway, I recruited his help to make fun fruit smoothies this afternoon. It gives him exposure to new foods (even if he won’t eat them today … maybe with exposure he will later on down the line) it lets us work on vocabulary, and gives him something to do, to break up the rain day movie-o-rama.
Today we made “Triple Berry” fruit smoothies. We always keep lots of berries and bananas around our house so this one is an easy fan favorite.
1 Cup Blueberries
1 Cup Raspberries
1 Cup Strawberries
1/2 Cup Blackberries
1 & 1/4 Cup Almond Milk
1/2 Cup Greek Yogurt
Blend and enjoy!
We freeze our berries to give it a thicker consistency but you can use all fresh fruit too!
