Mom’s Mango Smoothie
This smoothie is a Meal Makeover Moms favorite because it uses mango, a good source of vitamins A and C, and fiber. We first created it for a series of cooking videos we put on our website to showcase some family-friendly recipes. In the video, Janice and Leah prepare the smoothie together, demonstrating that kids of all ages can easily whip one up with little help—just be sure to place the blender lid on tightly!
My 1-year old sipped her drink to the bottom and signed for more, adding her little “mooore” word.
