When to introduce: 8-10 months (check with your pediatrician)*see note below

Stars: Broccoli is a good source of calcium, iron, and provides an excellent source of vitamins A and C. The peanut butter is a great source of protein and healthy fats. Bananas contain potassium, fiber, and are high in Vitamin C, B6, and B2. Kale is packed full of phytochemicals which are said to help prevent cancer, and also contain Calcium, Vitamin A and C.

Ingredients:
2 bananas, peeled
1 cup frozen broccoli
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 cup baby kale
8 to 10 oz filtered water

Directions:
1. Start by adding the liquid to your blender
(If you are using a creamier peanut butter that is a bit on the runny side, you can use 8 ounces of water. If your peanut butter is less runny and holds its shape well, use 10 ounces of water)
2. Add the bananas
3. Add the greens to your blender last
4. Blend on high for 30 seconds or until the smoothie is creamy
5. Pour and enjoy

Servings: Fills about 2 Pouches
*A note on peanut butter: While recommendations on when to introduce peanut butter are changing, you will continue to find pediatricians differing on their recommendations; some pediatricians remain cautious while others give the green light to any food at any age. Please ask your pediatrician about introducing peanuts and tree nuts to your baby. Reactions to these food items may be deadly. This article as well as the entire site is a great resource for food recommendations.

Amazing! I do a similar smoothie for my boy each morning. I use bananas from our tree, organic pb by Once Again, and kale and collard greens from our garden.

Amazing to see someone had a similar idea!
