Green Smoothie for Kids Recipe

Kids will love this sweet healthy green smoothie! The key to get your kids to eat more greens is to make the smoothie TASTE GOOD the first time your kid tries it!

Tips and Benefits of Making this Green Smoothie for Kids Recipe

  • It is really important for your kid to LIKE the smoothie in order to get them to keep drinking these natural vegetables and fruits smoothies that are just so good for them. Serve the drink in a cute cup that is another color other than green or that is not transparent.
  • Use a sippy cup for your toddler or if your child is older you can just use colored juice cups with lids and buy some fun shaped straws. Small mason jars work great to serve smoothies to kids. Another tip is to have your child help you make their green smoothie.
  • The green smoothie for kids is packed with many vitamins and minerals. The Spinach in this recipe has vegetable proteins, carries many antioxidants, and it is good for the bones. I have an entire section on the benefits of spinach in my recipe Vegetable Protein Juice.
  • Oranges are packed with vitamin C to keep their immune system strong and are also full of antioxidants to protect them from diseases.
  • The mango in this recipe is also good for their bones, aids in alkalinizing the whole body, it is rich in antioxidants and improves brain health. And of course they taste really good and are so sweet that your kids are going to love the taste!

Benefits of Bananas

  • Bananas are sweet, creamy, satisfying and are concentrated with easy digestible carbohydrate and low in fat.
  • One of the best sources of potassium and because of that, bananas are good for bone health.
  • They’re are also good for energy, to aid digestion and are beneficial for kidney health.
  • Bananas are quite filling and they do a good job in satisfying hunger.
  • Bananas are high in tryptophan, an amino acid that the body converts into serotonin. A brain chemical known to improve mood and encourage relaxation.
  • Bananas protect against blood pressure and fluid retention.
  • Bananas carry vitamins and minerals such as B2, B6, C, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium and selenium.
