8 Smoothies That Go Beyond Breakfast

Whether you trying one out for breakfast, a snack or to serve to weekend guests—we've rounded up some of the kid-friendliest smoothie recipes for all occasions.

Cool off with a delicious smoothie. Tasty, filling and packed with nutrients, a smoothie is a perfect springtime indulgence for adults and kids alike.

Mango Lassi
This classic Indian beverage need not be left to restaurant consumption only—especially not when mangos are in season!  Learn how to make your very own at home with a few simple ingredients and this quick and easy recipe from Rak's Kitchen.

Triple Berry Chia Smoothie

Packed with superfoods and only five ingredients, get yourself going with this rich-coloured berry blend. Best of all, the ingredients can be kept in the cupboard or freezer, so you don't have to worry about them going bad. Best of all this recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod only takes five minutes.

 Healthy Banana Almond Smoothie

If you have a nut butter lover in the family, they’ll love this almond-banana take on the usual peanut butter-banana. Think of it as a banana bread you can drink that is packed with vitamins, minerals and omega-3’s. We’re loving Cookie and Kate’s take on the recipe.

Creamsicle Smoothie

Before you hit up the ice cream shop or a supermarket for a box of creamsicles, try out this smoothie version—a much healthier option. Bright orange and 100% refreshing, you can find the recipe at Baked Bree.

Make-Ahead Oatmeal Smoothie

This recipe has variations so you can tailor it to your tastes. We love this one from The Yummy Life because it works as a smoothie alternative to hot cereal, and is made ahead of time—perfect for busy mornings.

Peach, Mango and Kale Smoothie

There's nothing to say that a kid who won't eat greens won't drink them. This smoothie is packed with iron and fibre, and a perfect pick-me-up. Kristine's Kitchen’s version is even a bright green, surely that’ll be enough to convince your picky eaters to give it a try!

Chocolate Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Chocolate for breakfast? Yes please. Little tummies are likely to agree. But hold off on the chocolate milk, and test out this recipe from Our Family Eats instead. This smoothie has zero added sugar and it’s gluten free!

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Popsicle

Sure, you may have spent years telling the kids that they can't have a popsicle for breakfast. But with these amazing smoothie popsicles, now you can! Or you can sneak a little extra fruit in by giving the kids a secret smoothie for dessert, for that matter. Peanut Butter and Peppers makes a great smoothie popsicle that’ll only cost you 31 calroies!
