Morning Smoothie

We've been making smoothies for a few weeks now, and I LOVE that I can use up all the baby cereal that everyone purchased for me and LO refuses to eat!

Morning Smoothie

16 ounces kefir  (we use homemade, but you can choose an unflavored store-bought)

1/2 to 1 cup baby cereal (we've used oatmeal and rice, but anything should work)

One 29 ounce can peaches, drained

3 tablespoons flax OR chia seeds

dash cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 banana, optional

Blend until incorporated. 

This recipe makes two HUGE smoothies, about 20 ounces each.  They're great to drink in the car if you don't have time for a proper "sit-down" breakfast.

Let me know if you have a Smoothie recipe your family loves!

Sounds good.  I've never tried kefir but I've heard a lot about it.

Quoting melaniecerise:

what is kefir

Essentially it is a fermented milk product, super full of probiotics and protein. 

You can find it in the cooler section of bigger stores beside the half-n-half and coffee mate.

Or you can ferment milk yourself with the kefir grains.
