Hendrix Favorite Smoothie and Cup

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Once Hendrix turned 7 months old I started giving him different types of smoothies. He absolutely loves them regardless what I put into them. Lately he has been picky with his vegetables (kale, carrots, peas, etc.) but he literally cannot tell the difference when put into a smoothie and he quickly guzzles them down in seconds. Finding the perfect straw cup that he was able to drink from, thick smoothies could easily flow through and one that chia seeds didn't get stuck was not an easy task.

As part of the Nûby parent blogger group I've been able to try some amazing Nûby products. One of the products I chose to review were the Wash or Toss Straw Cups. Finally the PERFECT smoothie cup! They hold 10 ounces which allows you to refrigerate whatever is left over or if you have a little piglet like me, your child will drink 10 ounces of smoothie in one sitting.

The cup is easy for Hendrix to hold and is a free flow cup which allows even the thickest of smoothies to pass through the straw. One of the best features is the straw runs down the base of the cup for those last sips of your drink.  4 cups with lids and matching straws comes in a pack.  The cups can be tossed in the garbage after a few uses but these cups are definitely sturdy enough to continuously use.  

Nûby Wash or Toss Straw Cups are available at Meijer
