We make smoothies just a little thicker and then put toppings on them and eat them with a spoon :)

Oh my word!!! That looks delicious!! We love adding fruit/granola to yogurt but this just takes it to a new level. I'm trying this tomorrow!

Rofl!
The kiddos love them. The thicker texture makes them feel like it's almost an ice cream lol
This bowl was a strawberry mango smoothie I just added a little almond milk and ice to the frozen fruit I believe.
Then on top is chia seeds, sliced almonds, flax and oats and pumpkin seed granola and then sliced banana :)

Blueberries, toasted coconut, walnuts, cubed apples, pumpkin seeds etc. all work well you can't go wrong....ok maybe you could but not without actively trying lol

We eat lots of things from bariatriceating.com.  And I have Pinterest boards where I collect recipes.  Not all of the recipes are completely healthy, I switch out high fat, high sugar items (for instance, anything that calls for bread crumbs, I use grated parmesan). I don't serve rice, I serve "riced" (food processed) cauliflower.

My son has a huge sweet tooth so I know this would be right up his alley- especially with all the toppings!
Ive been trying to do smoothies/yogurt and fruits of all kinds. This is super easy and would seem like a treat to him! Thanks:)
