From blueberries to dragonfruit, we have it all! These delicious healthy kid friendly smoothies are going to have you smiling as you watch your kids get their nutrition without complaining.

Most kids love a good frozen fruit smoothie but if you tell them that you made a healthy smoothie recipe, they refuse to touch it! The recipes below are all full of fruits but you can always sneak in some veggies. Spinach has very little flavor and hides well in a smoothie!

How To Make Smoothies

The best part about smoothies is that they are so easy to make. It’s really difficult to mess them up. That being said, there are a few tips when it comes ot making a delicious smoothie recipe for kids! Check out our guide on How To Make a Smoothie for step by step intstructions and then try a few of the recipes below!

If you need more variety, take a recipe below and change it up. Here are some ideas for substitutions:

  • Milk – Try unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, natural fruit juice or just water works well too
  • Frozen Fruit – Frozen banana, frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, frozen mango, or frozen mixed berries
  • Fresh Fruit – You can always use fresh fruit, but it can be pricier than frozen. Healthy smoothies are a great way to use overripe fruit.
  • Protein (no protein powder) – Nut butter like almond butter, peanut butter powder, greek yogurt, coconut milk yogurt, or avocado. These add protein but they also make for a creamy smoothie!
  • Superfood Mix Ins – Hemp hearts, chia seeds, almonds, YourSuper powders

Fortunately, the kids have learned to love a variety of smoothies, so I have come up with a go-to list of healthy kid-friendly smoothies!
