Tips for Success

  • Use frozen fruit for thicker and creamier smoothie. It will also make your drink nice and cold!
  • If you prefer a thinner smoothie, add more milk until desired consistency is reached
  • Dairy-free? you can use any of your favorite non-dairy yogurt or milk
  • You can serve toddler smoothies in a straw cup, open cup, or a reusable pouch.
  • Tailor the sweetness level to your liking by adding a touch of honey, maple syrup, or date syrup.
  • Consider adding a dollop of peanut butter, almond butter, sunflower seed butter, or your preferred nut butter. These are great choices not only to introduce healthy fats but also contribute to a creamy smoothie that’s oh-so-delicious.

Storage Suggestions

While it’s best to drink immediately, it can be stored for a day. Just be sure to give it a good shake before serving as separation will occur. If wanting to enjoy on another day, I would freeze them into popsicles! 

You can also double or triple the recipe and freeze in popsicle molds or ice cube trays. When ready to enjoy, add 5-6 frozen cubes into the blender with some milk or yogurt and blend it up!
