    Default What do you put in your toddlers smoothie?

    Hi all, I cannot remember if I have asked is before, but I would like to know what you put in your child's smoothie.
    I'm trying to put stuff that is high in nutrition, vitamins and filling.

    This is what I put in and hope for the best that my girl has it.
    Fresh berries (blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, Raspberries) what ever I have at the time.
    Banana
    Milk
    Yogurt
    Almond meal
    Oats (a spoon)
    Cinnamon
    Apple
    Today I put Cherries.

    Thank you

    I make a spinach or kale mix for all of us and freeze it into ice cubes and then just chuck in a cube or two with every smoothie - I just blitzed baby spinach and kale with coconut water and chia seeds so it looks like green sludge then freeze in ice cube trays ( once you mix it with other non green fruit you can't see any green )

    If you have a machine that blitzes really well then add chia seeds, goji berries, LSA or whole almonds to every smoothie as well for an extra protein and iron hit!

    Add avocado as well for the extra fat and calories

    Thank you

    My girl has avocado on its own.

    Chia seeds pop up everywhere, they must be really healthy.

    When the kids want a chocolate milkshake I do cocoa powder, medjool date, milk, ice. And sometimes half a wetbix.

    Banana, Greek yogurt, caramel sauce, milk. For a treat version I'll replace the yogurt with ice cream. Or for choc banana I'll use chocolate sauce.

    Frozen banana or berries, Greek yogurt, a weetbix, teaspoon of honey and occasionally an egg. Sometimes maca powder if we both need some energy in the morning!
