Debi Derryberry might be best known for being the voice of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, but it’s her recipe for a Baby Banana Smoothie that’s kind of brilliant. It has those kid-friendly flavors that your child will love (like banana and vanilla yogurt) but it also has good-for-you ingredients like protein powder, omega oil, and almond butter that makes it a winner whether you serve it as a snack or even an on-the-go breakfast while you’re on the way to school. It’s a great way for your child to get in a healthy meal…without even realizing it.
