Banana Oat Smoothies
I’ve checked out the book – Healthy Eating For Life (For Children) – yet again, from the library. I really should invest in my own copy. I discovered the book whilst I was vegan. Lots of kid-friendly low-fat vegan recipes.
Our family is no longer vegan, but we still enjoy vegetarian and vegan dishes. Well, my 4-year old and I enjoy those dishes. Hubby, not so much. 🙂
There are so many amazingly delicious recipes in the book. Some can be found on the recipe section of the PCRM website. [PCRM: Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine]
This recipe is one of our favorites:
