Ants on a Log Smoothie
Ants on a log is a super common snack for kids to expose them to the taste and texture of celery. But what about the children that struggle with the intense crunch or the “celery strings”? This applied to my youngest child so for his celery exposure I started with adding celery to smoothies, and gradually moved my way up in exposure with cooked celery in stir fries and eventually raw celery on veggie plates. One of his favorite celery smoothies was one I called “ANTS ON A LOG”. Here is the recipe if you want to try it too!
