I re-discovered smoothies not long after our eldest son was born firstly as a step towards eating better but I also quickly discovered they were the perfect snack or meal for when I was on the go – which can feel like ALL THE TIME some days! As the boys have to try everything that I’m eating, they both quickly developed a taste for my smoothies and over the years I’ve come up with a new few combinations especially for them. Rather than having a smoothie as a meal, they will often ask for one of their ‘healthy milkshakes’ as a snack before dinner or they will have one after their breakfast in the mornings. This collection of healthy smoothie recipes for kids includes a few of both the boys and my favourites, and best of all they can all be made regularly or in a Thermomix.
This simple Choc Mint Smoothie from Laughing Kids Learn is a great treat for the kids!

Ok so it may be green, but with a name like ‘Green Swamp Monster Smoothie’ this yummy creation from Kidgredients will be popular with the kids!
