Stay Strong Mummy 5 Favourite Kid Friendly – Smoothie Recipes

Smoothies are such a great way to add extra nutrients into our diets, particularly the kids! If you’re having trouble getting the ‘greens’ in their diets, I can highly recommend getting on the smoothie bandwagon and trying to include either one a day, or one every few days.

Start small and simple and build in the greens once they’re enjoying their special smoothie. I often buy cheap and fun little paper cups and colourful paper straws from the local discount shop to put them in. 

I have a laminated ‘kids smoothie menu’ on my fridge that I made up with fun pictures and characters on it. They get to choose what they want and the majority rules for the day!

I’ve listed our top 5 smoothies that might help you on your way to creating one of your own menus (I add a serve of the StayStrongMummy Protein Superfood Blend to mine and the hubby’s!)

Smoothies are quick and easy.. especially if you are on the run. We like to be prepared and store our favourite ingredients in snap lock bags in the freezer.

We love to stock up on fruits (and freeze) when they are in season as they are cheaper and taste the best!

NOTE:  I love bananas and find frozen bananas to be the perfect base for smoothies (and also ice-cream!) They are naturally sweet and help thicken up smoothies. In addition to their amazing taste bananas contain manganese, vitamin B6, vitamin C, fibre, potassium, iron, and vitamin A.

All essential for growing little bodies!
