Im really struggling getting veg into my 2.5 yr old dd but i succeed with smoothies but am giving her the same ones each time
So wondering if anyone has some great toddler smoothie recipes that contain veg and / or fruit as she will barely touch soup now which was my other plan of attack. I still offer her up veg on her plate but it never gets eaten

Our standard one is:
2 cups Either a2 or Almond milk
small tub plain yogurt
1 medium banana
Big Handful frozen blueberries
Small handful fresh baby spinach
Teaspoon LSA ( or chia seeds )
In summer I swapped fresh mango for the banana and also in summer I make them into ice blocks which were a big hit
I think having some kind of berry ( blue berry/raspberry/strawberry) is extremely nutritious and add something green , either a kiwi or cucumber or baby spinach or kale ( I've tried broccoli and its horrible!)
LSA is brilliant as its packed with vitamins, minerals and protein ( great for B vitamins and omegas)
Chia seeds are great for protein and iron
Make sure you also get plain yogurt with live cultures ( jalna is good)
I haven't tried it yet but my sister adds half avocado to all her fruit smoothies

Gosh it's soooo easy. I don't have any specific recipes, I just use what I have, and no one has complained so far.
I mostly use spinach, or kale, in my green smoothies.
My personal favorite is spinach, banana, berries.
Also spinach, green pear, green apple, celery, banana.
I once made one with spinach, coconut water, banana and pineapple. It was to die for!
I find banana is enough to mask the flavor of spinach. My kids don't seem to notice or care. I prefer to use almond milk or coconut water to blend with, instead of plain water (which I find just waters it all down and tastes gross).
Other things I have tried is avocado (yum!), broccoli (yuk), cucumber (yum).
I also add chia seeds, linseeds and sunflower seeds for boosted nutrients.
