Too much sugar in juice and fake sweeteners kill the healthy bacteria in your gut…what’s a girl who shuns plain water supposed to drink?
This is perpetually a problem for Shea, whose little palate does not yet appreciate herbal teas. Our answer this week: mango lassi, an Indian drink of plain yogurt, frozen mangos & honey.
Here you have the entire process documented for your education and enjoyment, along with an exclusive interview with Shea:
“What’s your favorite, mango, yogurt or honey?”
“Honey, because I is a big girl.”
“Do you like helping Mommy mix the smoothies or do you like when Mommy mixes them?”
“Um, you mix them, because I a little baby.”
“And what do you like to do after you drink the smoothie?”
“Um, I play the music. In my monkey-in-a-box.”
There we have it. Healthy, easy, child-friendly.
And if you don’t want to involve a blender, try this mix: sparkling soda with a splash of pineapple juice. Can we say refreshing? Can we say low-calorie?
Yes, yes, we can.
