Toddler Approved Smoothie Recipe

Toddlers are tricky little creatures. Some days they love vegetables, the next day they hate them. They’re hard to read.

However, my 2 year consistently loves smoothies. It’s literally 15 degrees outside and she still wants a smoothie. Sneaky me, I decided to put spinach in her smoothie…

I used to buy fresh spinach and would use that in smoothies, but I recently bought frozen instead. GREAT idea!! Fresh spinach is delicious, but it also goes bad relatively quickly. Frozen can also replace ice in your smoothie so it’s a win-win.

Here’s what I used for Brooke’s smoothie:

  • half a banana
  • handful frozen berries
  • handful frozen spinach
  • tbsp flax seed
  • half cup orange juice
  • splash of milk

The only changes I made to mine were no juice, a little more milk, and water.

Is that some serious attitude or what? She takes smoothie time very seriously.

Good stuff. I love when I can sneak spinach into smoothies. My favorite smoothie lately is a little less green and a little more chocolatey..

Here’s my favorite:

  • Chocolate protein powder
  • cinnamon
  • banana
  • cocoa powder
  • peanut butter
  • coffee 
  • milk, water, and ice

It’s delicious. Delicious I tell you.

FYI, that picture does not do it justice. Lucky you, you can also see my chicken thawing in the background!

Hurray for winter smoothies!!  Polar Plunges can’t stop our smoothie making.
