This is my new FAVORITE smoothie. I haven’t even made my beloved Strawberry-Banana Smoothie since I created this one. Don’t be afraid of the high calorie, high fat peanut butter. I found a substitute that is much healthier for you. It’s called PB2.
My toddler LOVES this smoothie and would drink my entire serving if I gave it to him. Smoothies are a great way to incorporate all the fruits and veggie your child needs yet refuses…feeding a toddler is so much fun right? I simply pour him a glass BEFORE I ADD THE PROTEIN in it. I’m not a nutritionist, but I don’t think a 17 month old should be eating Whey Protein powder…at least I don’t feel comfortable giving it to him.
-1/2 cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt (yes, this is disgusting by itself, but adds a great creamy texture to your smoothies. I scoop out half of the yogurt from the small carton and use the remaining yogurt later).
-1/2 cup skim milk (I use Organic Cows milk, but any milk will due)
-1 Banana (fresh or frozen…if you use frozen, you probably won’t have to use as much ice)
-1 Tbsp. Ground Flaxseed (or any other nutritional supplements)
-1 Tbsp. PB2 (A serving is 2 Tbsp., but I tried this and it made the smoothie really chalky, so 1 Tbsp. is perfect).
-1 Tbsp. Peanut Butter (this tastes delicious but will add more calories to your smoothie)
-1 Heaping Tbsp. (or half a scoop) Whey Protein Powder (I add this last before I give my son part of this smoothie)
-1 cup ice
Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. If you’re giving to your kids, blend all ingredients, EXCEPT the protein powder, pour them a glass, and then add the protein to the rest. Or drink this puppy all by yourself! This makes about 3 cups total and equals 313 calories based on the specific ingredients pictured above!

What serving size do you recommend for a 13 month old?
If it were my 13 month old, I’d say about 1/2 cup.
