“Secret Ingredient” Strawberry Smoothie
This recipe is inspired by a friend who says her oldest son is struggling with food lately. He’s what we might call a “picky” eater if we didn’t have a better way to think about it. See my blog post on picky eaters for more help with that one…
Either way, he’s feeling tired and unmotivated at school and is not interested in food. BUT he does love a good strawberry banana “milkshake” so I took the challenge to find a smoothie with both of those star ingredients and a few other “secret” ones to give him what he needs to start his day off with a good dose of good food! The nice thing about this recipe is that the strawberry and banana have enough bold and recognizeable flavour that the “secret” ingredients won’t be overwhelmingly obvious even to the most discerning consumer! Adding some fat and protein to this recipe means it’s fully balanced and ready to help young brains maximize their learning at school! Your brain is 95% fat, without fat in our food we’re not giving our brains what they need! Protein and fiber will help keep you feeling full and means your body is getting what it needs to run optimally!
