Do you Smoothie? I started “smoothie-ing” to boost the kid’s nutrition. I wanted them to get more fruits, veggies and probiotics… and I especially wanted more calcium in Ava’s dairy-free diet. So, we smoothie. On and off. Then on again. For weeks at a time, the blender doesn’t leave the counter. Other […]
