Big A loves fruit smoothies. The problem is that Little D doesn’t. In fact, he’s not a big fan of fruit overall, especially the really sweet kind like strawberries and oranges (this bums me out but that’s a topic for another post). The teachers at his preschool are amazed that he turns his nose up to juice.
What Little D really loves is nuts. One day in the store, he grabbed a bag of nuts and yelled “Yummy Nuts!” So needless to say he loves peanut butter. So while making smoothies the other day, I also made a batch using banana, milk and peanut butter. While Little D refused to try it, Big A’s friend couldn’t get enough. And I’m sure after a few more tries he’ll take to it. If not, I’ll drink it!
