Here's how to make healthy smoothies for kids:

Use this method to make the following healthy smoothies recipes for kids. 

  1. Add ice and/or frozen ingredients
  2. Add fresh fruit and/or vegetables and/or leafy greens
  3. Add any optional extras. This can be nuts, seeds, superfood powders, dried fruit, protein powders or sweetners
  4. Add your favourite liquid of choice
  5. Blend until smooth

Each recipe makes 2 large “adult-sized” smoothies, so you can split between 3 or 4 kids. Kids love the thick milkshake-like consistency of smoothies, but if you’re finding your smoothies are too thick, you can alter the consistency by adding small amounts of water or milk until your desired consistency is achieved.

Pirates Of The Carob-ean

If your children love chocolate milkshakes but aren’t fruit fans, this is the perfect healthy "shake" for kids and uses carob instead of chocolate. Carob is a naturally sweet superfood which kids love in smoothies, it's also rich in dietary fibre and the bone-building mineral calcium. We love carob in this superfood smoothie because it blends brilliantly with cacao nibs and cashews for a yummy magnesium kick - vital for a healthy heart and brain.
