Super Simple Smoothies

If your child will have them, smoothies are the perfect way to get fruit and veg into your child. Yes it would be a perfect world if our children would eat tonnes of fruit every day but sometimes it’s not that easy and we just need a simple solution.

Smoothies are also great because you can sneak literally anything into them… Spinach, kale, flax seeds, you name it. I started off simple this week though as smoothies were something that C had previously refused. 

Strawberry and Banana 

  

1 cup of frozen, tinned or fresh strawberries 

1 banana (I used a banana I had previously frozen as it turns ice-cream-like in the freezer)

A handful of grapes

2 cups orange juice

1 strawberry fromage frais/ yoghurt

1/2 cup milk

Whizz it all up in the blender and push through a sieve if your little one is opposed to lumps. Enjoy!

Yummy Orange and Peach

  

1 Orange peeled and separated

1 peach or apricot fromage frais

A handful of grapes

Half a tin of peaches (with juice)

2 cups of orange juice

1/2 a cooked carrot

Whizz and seive as above and enjoy!

We will be road testing lots more smoothie combinations in the coming weeks so watch this space!

Do you have any smoothie recipes that are a winner with your fussy eater?

  1. I keep meaning to kick off a smoothie fest for the kids and for some reason the mornings hit and everything goes out the window (sanity included)! I’ll aim for the afternoon snack time instead and give these recipes a go.
