Our house has been visited by "kid crud." You know, that coughing-runny-nose-no-one-feels-great-but-a-doctor's-visit-is-overkill that runs in toddler circles. Our little man hasn't had much of an appetite, so I decided to tempt him with a smoothie that has some nutritional value. It has enough (natural) sweetness to appeal to a 21 month old but isn't all junk food.
Sick Day Smoothie
1/2 block silken tofu
1/2 cup of Orange Juice
Combine Tofu, Bananas, Strawberries, and Kiwis in a Cuisinart (or Vitamix, or other blender)
Slowly add orange juice until you have a smooth, sweet consistency
Pour into a glass and serve with a bendy straw. Bendy straws make everything better when you do feel good.
Feel free to experiment with other fruit. I've used blueberries, frozen apple juice, mango - really anything that needed to be used out of the fridge. This is so simple, and so tasty!
