Caleb's Corner: Banana Breakfast Remix

Caleb's favorite fruit is the banana.....he would eat 10 in a day if we let him! For about a year, Caleb's favorite breakfast has been "banana and chia" (chia porridge that is).  Welp, lately the King of Banana Land is getting tired of chia.....not of bananas!  "No I don't want chia Mommy" he exclaims every time he sees me pull it out of the cupboard. 

Chia porridge with banana

So I've been trying to find different ways to provide a healthy, allergy free breakfast for the little guy. 

I landed on banana smoothies!  It's been a great hit and while we used to let Caleb eat 3 or 4 bananas a day (yes, you read right), now we limit him to 2 a day.  The banana smoothie is a great way to give him the bananas that he loves and other nutritious food in literally one gulp.  If you are not giving your children smoothies yet, start now!! Just like for adults it's a great way to get a power packed meal. 

Here's the recipe:

Caleb's Banana Smoothie
1 banana
4 - 5 dates (pitted)
1/2 cup of frozen mango
1/4 cup of hemp seeds
water for desired consistency - you can use any juice instead

Blend it all up at once and Enjoy!!
