Grayson is on a frozen blueberry kick these days. It’s his dessert of choice.
Yep. Frozen blueberries.
In a bowl.
Which he eats with his fingers. His messy, purple stained fingers.
Because the frozen fruit is such a hit, I decided to make a blueberry smoothie they could have for breakfast. Blueberry, banana and spinach, to be exact. No surprise, they love it. I also had a little bit of wheat germ, which gives it a hearty texture, and a bit of honey to make it extra sweet and tasty.
This recipe makes a large batch. I usually make a full blender at once, then pour portions into sealable sandwich bags, which freeze flat nicely. I then transfer a bag to the refrigerator the night before, and it’s soft enough for them to drink in the morning. It makes for an easy, fun breakfast.
And, who doesn’t love purple swirling in the blender? What’s your favorite smoothie combo?
