Something my Dominican mother and grandmother always encourage me and my siblings growing up was to eat a well-rounded meal. Rice + bean + plantains + avocado = a robust meal with plenty of nutrients. You ever noticed how Hispanic’s just happen to have long lifespans? Yep, my ancestors knew just how to maintain a healthy immune system!
Now that I’m a mother, I want to drill that same message into my children’s heads too! If there’s one thing I learned from my mamí and abuela, it’s that you’ve got to start ‘em young, LOL. As such I’ve begun incorporating certain fruits and vegetables into our weekend smoothies. It’s something Theo especially looks forward to because he loves being a “big kid” just like his sister. He gets his own cup and sits right next to Remy as they enjoy their afternoon treat!
I’ve also started to include certain supplements to make things a little simpler for this busy mom. Since I’m always on the go, I want to ensure that I go the extra mile to provide the best for my kiddos and to use brands I can trust. Enter NESTLÉ® NIDO® NIDO 1+ contains vitamins and minerals which help support healthy growth and development and has a delicious honey taste kids love! I always scoop in Nestle Nido 1+ into my son’s smoothies for extra nutrients he may miss throughout the day. And the best part is that he loves it!
Its super ideal and convenient that I can pick up NIDO 1+ at my local Walmart while I’m snagging clothes for my kids or beauty products for myself. If you follow me on IG Stories then you are well aware of my not-so-secret love affair with Walmart and all the hidden gems I find while I’m there. People sleep on Walmart but trust me when I say you’d be surprise with what you can find there! You can find Nestle Nido 1+ in the Hispanic Foods isle near your favorite brand of black beans and rice!
Now on to the smoothie recipe! In our household we have a few different variations of Theo’s favorite NIDO smoothies but I thought today I’d share the easiest and most delicious of the bunch!
