Need help getting out the door with your little one in the morning? This smoothie, created by Joy McCarthy of Joyous Health, can help! Joy chose each of the ingredients for gut-lovin’ (good for a child’s developing microbiome), immune and brain-boosting benefits, and ability to provide little people’s bodies with nourishing energy all morning long! This smoothie is dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free and low allergen.
Joy says, “It’s extremely nourishing for growing bodies! Because I’ve added fermented organic gut superfoods+ kids, they’ll be sipping on a rainbow of phytonutrients. What I mean by that is there are so many different coloured superfoods, which are the best nutrition bang for your buck you can give to your child.”
