A quick snack for kids (and adults).

We demoed this chocolatey smoothie for about 40 preschoolers and elementary school kids recently at my daughters’ school, and it was generally a hit! (I didn’t expect everyone to love it, but every kid tried it and most of them kept drinking it! It was a hit with all the adults, too!)

Remember….exposure is what counts. When you’re making smoothies have your tot help you, and let them learn about what’s going into their food! Taste along the way to make sure the flavor is right. Here’s how to make it:

  • 1.5 cups coconut milk (full fat)
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup strawberries
  • 1-2 T. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 pitted dates
  • 3 ice cubes

Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender (coconut milk on the bottom) and blend until smooth. Makes approximately 24 ounces.
