My Little Man is a selective eater.  I can count the foods he eats on one hand.  That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but it isn’t far off.  Thankfully, two of those foods are apples and crunchy carrots.  He also loves [LOVES] chocolate milk and milkshakes.  The problem is I am 99% sure he is lactose intolerant.  As one of his only sources of protein, not drinking milk is a big deal.  A friend of mine told me that Yami yogurt is lactose free.  Sure enough, the makers of Yami use Lactase, a natural enzyme, to remove lactose from the yogurt.  Brilliant!!  Except I can’t get him to eat the yogurt.  Knowing that he loves smoothies, I went stealth and created a fruit smoothie that is dairy free and delicious!!  [And this is why mothers should be considered superheros!]

{Dairy Free} Strawbery Smoothie

  • 1-4oz. container of Yami Vanilla yogurt
  • 6 frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup Coconut milk

Blend and serve!

It takes less than minute to whip up this smoothie and I make one for him most mornings.  He and I even shared one for dessert this week since it has been so hot in Seattle.  It was the perfect cool treat on a warm evening!  I love that I can easily change the frozen berries [blueberries, raspberries, blackberries}, use almond milk, and add fresh berries to keep things interesting.  As long as he drinks them, I will make them!

    Love this idea and the jar lid! I’m going to be transitioning my little miss to dairy-free. This smoothie will be added to our repertoire.
