Healthy Smoothie Recipes for Kids

Vegan healthy smoothie recipes for kids! yes they are all olant-based. Go ahead and make them all to find your child's favorite - and your own too. I love having one or sometimes two every day. To make any of them even more nutritious you can always add some greens, a few baby spinach leaves or some mint for example.


Did you know that ginger in smoothies can hide the taste of other ingredients, because it's quite a dominant flavor? So a good idea would also be to teach your kids to like ginger or help them to get used to the taste of it, if they don't already love it. It alos goes well in juices. I make fresh juice quite often and my signature combination is apples, giner and lemon - so good.

The other day I made a healthy raw soup, the recipe was my son's idea in a way. He said: make a smoothie, something with carrots. And ginger.

I never put carrots in our smoothies, so I was surprised. I decided I would make a carrot apple ginger smoothie or raw soup with some lemon and a banana to help the texture become more smooth. And a little water of course.

It turned out quite well, and the most important thing is that my son liked it. Usually he has some natural inclination of always leaving some food on the plate or in the glass, so he would only eat or drink only eats 3/4 of what what I give him, but this time he ate all of his share.

Oh, in this soup I also added a teaspoon of dried hawsthorn berries. They are supposed to be really healthy, full of essential fatty acids, omega 3, omega 6 and 7! They grow up north, far out on small islands in the archipelago.

Something I just thought about now is that most times when I'm off to the store and I ask my son if he needs anything, he says "avocados, tomatoes and fruits". But lately he also often asks for juice. 

So I guess that means I haven't made as many smoothies as I used to make, otherwise he wouldnt ask that! Not good! Now I will start again!

The green mango smoothie I will try right now because I have the ingredients at home and I also feel I need a little extra flu protection.

My son just recovered from a (regular) flu, first serious one in years, and I don't feel like also getting it right now.

The ANTI-FLU smoothie is great for virus-protection, if I would have turmeric and cherries or strawberries here I would so make that one.

Today my son's friends came to our house after school, so yesterday he was planning what he wanted them to have as an after school snack.

Normally Benji would have a mango and other fruits, but one of his friends doesn't like fruit so he was really thinking about what they could have.

His conclusion was that I should buy ingredients for sandwiches, so they could make themselves some.

That is such a typical thing for kids to eat, right? Benji knew that this is what his friends are used to so he didn't want to disappoint them.

When I got home I saw that "someone" had also had a grapefruit and several other fruits, and I think I can guess which one of the four boys it was.

When you have older children at home, or kids of any age for that matter, really try to avoid giving in to requests of buying junk food for them. It will do nothing good for their body and their gut wont be happy and in turn their mood will be lower than it otherwise would have been. Avoiding white sugar, soft drinks, fast food is essential in my opinion.

What to eat instead? Check out these cookies you can bake very eaily or these drinks you can make or these healthy plant-based meals.

OK good! Here you have one you could try:

Very healthy and will give you and your children a lot of energy.

But the one I like most is awesome. It is made with frozen strawberries and fresh pineapple.

I feel so good after having two glasses of it in the morning.

You might have noticed that the smoothies here on this page are dairy-free.

I don't think cow's milk should be part of a child's diet, so that is the reason for this.

You might also be interested in an article I recently wrote on this Nutrition for Kids website, called Healthy Drinks for Kids. There you can find even more goodness!
