Welcome back to Fuel Your Body Friday! If this is your first visit, I’m glad you joined us!

This month I’m partnering with Baby Brain Organics to bring you some great smoothie recipes. Baby Brain Organics is run by Amy who is also a mom and by my standards a health guru, really by everyone’s standards, she’s amazing. They make BABY and KIDS powder boosters that you can add to your kids’ regular meals, which makes getting healthy nutrients into them (the kids) a lot easier.

We’re kicking it back to sweet-ville for this smoothie. A lot of people drink smoothies for breakfast but we do them more as a dessert so probably favour the sweeter varieties. Since we add Baby Brain Organics (BBO) to them I don’t fuss too much about whether it is laden with veggies since they’ll get a ton of nutrients from the BBO.  I’m making this one for after the kids get back from trick-or-treating tonight. They’ll have had dinner before they go but always come home starving so I’ll get this in them before they fill their bellies with candy! Or I’ll try anyway :)
