Charlie's a really picky eater and would rather drink milk (or in Charlie's case lactaid) over eating any day. And when he decides to eat it's usually fruits and green veggies which is great but protein's a battle with him. Unless it's hummus or black beans, he surprisingly loves both. Seeing as he enjoys drinking his meals I tried making this smoothie, sneaking in a little protein, with yogurt and avocado. For the milk because Charlie suffers from whole milk I substituted lactaid. Verdict: We both loved it! It's a tasty treat on these warmer spring days we've been enjoying!
