Tropical Smoothie

Tropical Smoothie Baby Food

Holy deliciousness! I was at the health food store and there was a 
plethora of fresh pineapple and papaya to be had. I knew Kenya would love the 
flavor of both fruits, but I wasn't sure if he would jump at the chance to eat it in 
pieces. One trick I've learned is that if I include Kenya in the 
cooking process, whether it's just letting him push a button or asking him to stir whatever I'm mixing, he ultimately wants to try 
whatever I make because he feels like he's making it, too. And smoothies are a great way to get kids to eat fruit 
and yogurt without having to twist their arms.
Papayas and pineapples are both high in Vitamin C as well as 
containing enzymes that help break down protein in the body, thereby 
aiding digestion.
Just one taste of this luscious smoothie and Kenya was hooked. I filled 
up his sippy cup and moments later he was back for seconds.
