While I may not jump to pumpkin spice everything at the start of fall, I do love adding a little bit of pumpkin to the mix. Pumpkin pie is my favorite pie, so I wanted to capture that flavor in this coconut constipation smoothie to help potty training toddlers.

As a potty training consultant, I've noticed the early autumn season is also a common time for me to hear in my client work about regressions, tough transitions to preschool or daycare, and many parents start potty training over a long holiday weekend in the fall.

Did you know that coconut milk is one of the best foods for helping your toddler poop when you start potty training?

One of the easiest ways to help your child poop in the potty is to be sure there's not a level of mild toddler constipation, so you can help push past any performance anxiety to poop in the potty.

Here's to celebrating the change of seasons with a pumpkin pie constipation smoothie to help see good poops from your toddler wherever you are in the potty training process!

And the poop affects the pee so it can be a win-win when you get your child's poops moving in the right direction!

Here's what you'll need to whip together this constipation smoothie for toddlers!

Make a coconut smoothie for constipation:

Blend the ingredients together in a blender. I use a Vitamix blender which has been a powerhouse for years (love it!) and can turn anything, even the dates, into a super smooth smoothie. If your blender tends to get stuck, I'd let the dates sit in the milk for a little while to soften them up. You can also add a splash more of milk if the smoothie is too thick for you or your toddler.

This is a thicker smoothie (inspired by pumpkin pie) so it's best served with a straw.

I used a mason jar, with a lid and a reusable stainless steel straw. (Psst: how adorable is this color-changing mason jar that turns into smiley faces with a cold drink!!)

While your toddler is sipping on a pumpkin pie smoothie, here's a book that brings home that transition to fall vibe.

This is one of my favorite children's books to bring out as soon as that chill comes into the air, school is back in session, and we're switching over from tank tops to cozy socks. Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn is a beautiful book all about the changing of the seasons.

Because there is more to autumn than just the pumpkin spice. 🍁
