Method

Layer the ingredients in the blender starting with strawberries. Add orange, carrot, pineapple, green grapes, spinach, blueberries, purple (red) grapes, banana, and ice. Blend until smooth.

Babyfood Option:

Smoothies are a great consistency for new eaters and a great way to introduce a colder temperature. So they don't drink the cold smoothie too fast, consider dipping a training spoon into a small cup of puree so that baby can lick the spoon and enjoy the flavor.
