Kiddo Creations: Blueberry Banana Smoothie

I’m home with a sick kiddo today. He’s wiped out. Spent. Beat.

I guess we played a little too hard this weekend.

Can kiddo’s get fun hangovers? If they can, I think he has one.

But, he isn’t too spent to dream up his latest favorite smoothie concoction, chock full of fruits and veggies to kick any fun hangover in the butt.

Seriously, Mom? You're making me pose while I'm sick?

Blueberry Banana Smoothie

1 banana
1 large handful fresh spinach
1 large handful frozen blueberries
1 large handful ice cubes
About 1/2 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon (or so) cinnamon

Throw it all in a blender and whizz it up. Add more coconut milk if it’s too thick.

Okay, you can post this one, but you have to call it "Yum! Yum! Yum!"

  1. Great photos! I do think we can overdose from fun. Kids, adults, and dogs. When we take the dog camping, he has so much fun that he comes home and vegetates for a day or two. ;-) Love the smoothie as I’ve been in the blueberry banana routine myself of late!

      Thanks Shirley. Yah, we’ve been going non-stop all summer. I think he just hit a big brick wall. We’re going camping this weekend, so I hope he bounces back before then!

  2. This is almost identical to my favorite smoothie! I often add flaxseed for fun and use a full cup of blueberries, but otherwise the same.

      Honestly, we didn’t measure the blueberries – just dumped some in. I never measure with smoothies. It’s totally an eyeball it thing for me. I just love that he asks for spinach smoothies. And whatever else goes in with the spinach is kind of okay with me. :)

    we have been overdosing on blueberry smoothies this summer. I make ours with kale and dandelion–YUMMO.
    Your son is beautiful!
    Peace and Raw Health,
