    Thanks for the inspiration! I used pumpkin, leftover papaya chunks, banana, flax, and yogurt to make a quick shake for my 26 month old and I for morning snack today. She drank it all up and even asked for more. We live in India and are trying to eat healthy. I enjoy your blog as you use ingredients I can get here as well. Thanks so much!
