Banana smoothie for the babies or How I'm fattening up my toddler

Z is not gaining a lot of weight, in fact she lost 2 pounds. On our last visit to the clinic we were advised to fatten her up with the things that she loves. That's pretty easy, because she loves to eat many foods- good ones too! 
Thus began my smoothie a day quest. Z loves smoothies, so I just load everything I can find into them. When daycare is closed, we drop in dollops of peanut butter- cause nothing fattens you up like pb :)

In the past 2 weeks she has had more greens (spinach, kale) than in the whole month of "eating". Here's our latest fave smoothie. I have to stop drinking them because while they are great for her, and the other little ones,  they are way  too fattening for me. Darn it!

1 ripe banana  (peeled)
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon flaxseeds
1 cup almond milk - I used 3% for the babies
1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon honey 

Cut and freeze banana
Add sunflower seeds and flaxseeds to a small bowl and cover with water. Let sit at room temperature overnight.
Drain seeds and transfer to a blender. Add frozen banana, milk of choice, turmeric, and honey
Blend until smooth.

Serve to little ones who will love you forever---or until it's done.
