Great ideas! I have been wanting some new kid friendly recipes to change things up. The black raspberry and apple and peach and mango ones sound especially good to me!
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
These all sound so good! We are a smoothie family, and I’ve recently started teaching my daughters how to make them. These are all going to be great practice!
I love smoothies, the mango pineapple one sounds delicious! However, you really have to watch the amount of juice you put in because it ends up being a lot of sugar and calories.
robin rue says
Those all sound so good. We make smoothies for breakfast pretty often in our house!
I get nervous around blenders and my son, but I have t get over it, he loves smoothies and try’s to make them without a blender which is not easy!
Melissa Chapman says
I loved all those healthy combinations and I love smoothies. Kids love smoothies too. I would like to try peanut butter and oat, or banana and spinach.
Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly says
I prefer smoothies for breakfast, I have to get out the door fast and prefer something I can just grab and go, I put mine in a thermos and run out the door weekdays!
Catherine Sargent says
These all sound really good, I would like to try the Cherry Vanilla & Chia and Pineapple and Coconut smoothie.
I have a smoothie every day. Usually just blueberry or strawberry, so I need to break out of the rut I’m in. Thank you for these really tasty suggestions!
What a great list of smoothies! I’d like the pineapple coconut one!
Liz Mays says
Now these would be some fun ones to try. The honeydew and almond combination is something we haven’t done before.

This is a good idea. Kids will eat things that they made or cooked themselves. Great way to make kids eat their veggies.

Smoothies to make with kids? This is cute but I dont have kids so smoothies I will make with myself will do. Mango Ginger at the top of my list!
I love Coconut and pineapple best!
I worked at a smoothie place in my first years of college. I went through a few years where I boycotted them after, but have come back around. Love making them for my family. Can’t wait to try some new recipes.
It’s a fun activity to do together.
