Breakfast Smoothies

A fun way to add a few more fruits and veggies into your kid’s diet is with smoothies. You can even sneak in a little spinach when nobody is looking. Smoothies are served in our kitchen many times throughout the week. It might be with breakfast or it might be a mid-morning or afternoon snack. It is a great way to get a couple fruits and vegetables in each day.

You can make your smoothies as thick or thin as you like. I just put them together and mix them with my immersion blender. I don’t measure any of these ingredients. My measurements below are estimates only.

The banana is key to a smooth creamy smoothie.

Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie
1 banana
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 cups milk/almond milk/soy milk
1/2 cup raw spinach leaves
1 tsp ground flax seed.
(This smoothie will be a little thinner than the others)

Mango Strawberry Peach Smoothie
Frozen Mixed Fruit 1 1/2 cups ( mango, peach slices and strawberries)
1 banana
2 cups milk/almond milk/soy milk
(You can also use 1 cup orange juice and 1 cup milk)
1/2 cup raw spinach leaves

Blue Berry Smoothie
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 banana
2 cups milk/almond milk/soy milk
Scoop of Whey
1/2 cup raw spinach leaves

You might think, spinach? Yup. In a smoothie it is tasteless.

You can always use fresh fruit when available, but the frozen fruit makes the smoothie cold and a little thicker.
