Operation IFO takes on SMOOTHIES!!!

*Cue Music*  And………


When I announced we were going to try smoothies in Operation IFO, I also mentioned there were a number of sensory sensations involved with drinking said smoothie in Riley World. My now IRL bloggie friend Bec came up with an ingenious suggestion (as always). Start off with a non-diary version. Use apple juice (since R will drink that) instead of milk/yogurt. D’oh!! *slides yogurt to the back of the fridge*

And so we started with this…



As with anything new…I started off small. There was only 4 ounces in his glass. 


I anticipated much gagging and protesting so I reverted back to the good ol’ days when a desired food was on standby (at the table and ready to eat as soon as he finished the new food). I assumed my no eye contact stance and called R to the table.

You're shocked aren't you??  I was! Now much of the time when the straw was in R’s mouth he was not actually drinking anything. Oh. Next time...I am going with a bigger cup.  ;P

Have a great weekend!!

  5. Yay, S is indeed for smoothie! Did he mention it again after this or have you tried another one? Watch out for lumps, peaches have a really gross texture. Oh and I love that you can call me your IRL friend :D
