Please say hello to my absolute favorite green smoothie combo this past month. I’ve shared many green smoothies on the blog before but something about this particular one is giving me life! Even my baby boy loves it! We started introducing solids to Cal at 7 months and he’s really loving using silicone straws and drinking his own smoothies. Specifically this recipe, I kid you not, he has had this right after his nap every single day for the last two weeks. If you follow me on IG you’ll probably have seen the stories I’ve posted of him enjoying it. So excited to start making him meals!
The original inspiration behind this green smoothie actually came from my husband. Usually when we’re out we like to pick up smoothies because they’re quick, wholesome and perfect when you’re in a pinch and need something tasty. He recently transitioned to a vegan diet and with that we’ve collectively been much more aware of our eating habits – I talked more about that here. Anyways, he’s been eager to try new things and thus he’s had a variety of smoothie combos. When we tried out this new to us place nearby he turned to me and said, “I love green smoothies that just taste like fruit”. Which I totally agreed with. So I wanted to recreate just that from home. Saving us money and creating better habits moving forward.
Okay now maybe I’m crazy but I swear this smoothie tastes like bubblegum. My husband disagrees, so I’m curious to hear what you all think! Some days it tastes a little different, we make this daily, but I believe it has to do with how ripe the mango and pineapple is. If your fruits are on the sweeter side add only 1-2 dates. If your fruit isn’t as sweet, go for adding 3 pitted dates. Adjust the amount of liquid as well. I like super thick smoothies so I use frozen fruits and just enough non-dairy milk to get it evenly blended.
As always I’m very excited to be collaborating with Vitacost. The one-stop-shop for all my pantry staples! I’ve included Vitacost’s hemp seeds to boost the overall nutritional value and make this as well rounded as possible. With introducing solids to my little man I feel it’s important to also give him nutrients that could easily be neglected as we make this transition. I love that I’m able to blend up a powerhouse smoothie and know he’s getting a wide variety of vitamins that are essential to his growth. Definitely check out Vitacost.com if you’re curious. So many great vegan & cruelty-free brands and products to choose from!
