Of all the fun foods that Mazen and I prepare together, smoothies are his favorite. Most likely because he loves pushing the blender buttons!
Anyone who has ever cooked with kids knows that there will inevitably be a spill, in one way or another. Dripping sauces, sticky fingers or flinging sunflower butter flung everywhere – kids always manage to spread a little mess around. But of course, that’s all part of the fun!
A Costco opened in Charlottesville this year, and so Mazen and I took a trip to join it. This was perfect timing because I needed to get some Bounty Advanced Paper Towels for this recipe! Select-A-Size for the win!
While sunflower butter ended up on the cabinets and on the back of Mazen’s PJs, my little helper knew exactly how to clean it up.
We always turn our smoothies into popsicles, so this Super Green Smoothie Bowl is also a popsicle recipe! I let Mazen have popsicles morning, noon and snacktime because ours are always packed with superfoods and have no added sugar. This one in particular has two cups of greens and half an avocado – super green!
“Can I push it now Mommy? Now?!”
Drip, drip, drip!
I love to serve my smoothies in bowls – eating them with a spoon feels so luxurious!
This one’s texture is thick and pudding-like thanks to lots of oats, chia seeds and all that creamy avocado.
