Day One: Get your toddler to eat breakfast

Normally, Naya will only reliably eat one thing for breakfast - cold pizza. Because apparently she's already a college student. The rest of the meals aren't so tough, fortunately. In my quest for breakfast alternatives . . . smoothies! Today was a Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie - since Daddy has hooked the girls on ice cream-based smoothies (a/k/a milkshakes), I've had some misses in the past with trying to get her to eat these, today was mildly successful! I think for some reason the frozen fruit made it taste much less yogurt-y than usual.

Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie (estimates - made 2 servings):
1/3 c. yogurt
1/2 c. milk
6 frozen strawberries
1/2 c. frozen pineapple
1/2 frozen banana

Next time around - may add honey for some extra sweetness, although Naya didn't seem to mind, and might try to add in some wheat germ or ground flax seed for extra nutrition. Lani still wouldn't touch it knowing it was ice cream-free, but I'm still labeling this - SUCCESS!
