Healthy Energy Boosting Smoothies for Children


Smoothie is one of the stomach filling as well as energy boosting drinks for children. Let us take a look at the recipes for making healthy energy boosting smoothies for children.


Parents are always concerned whether or not their kids are getting enough nutrients for the energy they need to get going the whole day. Usually, kids do not like sitting and eating meals. They would choose a glass of milk instead of sitting to have a breakfast that needs to be chewed. Some of the kids do not like milk at all. When children are not eating, smoothies are the best way to fill up the gap. They are packed with nutrients and they are liked by kids as they find this easier to drink than eat a bowl of fruits or vegetables.

Children use more energy and so they need to be re-fuelled time and again all through the day. Smoothies are the best way to refill your child with the energy she needs. Fruit smoothies are really special drinks to power up their day. You can make smoothies with the fresh fruits available or add a handful of spinach to it. Your child is not going to figure out and the green when mixed with orange will give a twist in the colour as well. Come up with new ideas and try them gradually so that your child does not get bored with similar taste.

Here are six healthy energy boosting smoothies for children. However, you can always come up with some unique and perfect recipes creating your own depending on the availability of fruits and milk products in your home at that time.


1. Peach Vanilla Yogurt Smoothie

This is a refreshing and tasty drink which can be served at breakfast or in between meals. You can modify and change the fruits in this smoothie and use soy milk or cow’s milk.


2. Strawberry Vanilla Banana Smoothie

This smoothie has goodness of strawberries and bananas as well as low fat dairy. It is sweet, creamy and smoothly filling. You can even replace it with regular breakfast making your child’s mornings magical and fully energetic.


3. Mango Strawberry Smoothie

Add mangoes, strawberries, grapes and peaches to this smoothie including yogurt. Along with children you would like to blend one for yourself and your spouse too. After all, this special smoothie is what all the sweethearts in your life deserve.


4. Green Grape Smoothie

Getting some more green in the smoothie along with the freshness would be just about something that your child needs for the hour. Add grapes, a pear, orange and bananas to yogurt or milk taking into account the liking of your child.


5. Peach Orange Smoothie

Juicy peach and orange smoothie, packed with vitamin C is going to help your child stay away from common infections. This cool treat is full of antioxidants and is going to support her immune system. It is also going to help in wound healing as well as promote healthy skin.


6. Sweet Banana Smoothie

Bananas are something that you get around the year and children love them in one form or another, for sure. Include low fat dairy and add banana to it to get the sweet smoothie. You can combine this with fresh fruits occasionally to add variety to the smoothie along with providing calcium and protein.

Smoothies can be highly energetic, packed with vitamins and nutrients. You simply need to select the best combination of fruits. Prefer seasonal fruits to help your child have the added advantage of having fresh and highly nutritious smoothie. Adding dry roasted peanuts to any of the fruit smoothie you make will provide the necessary protein needed for your highly energetic child. Even if your child does not like peanuts, she is not going to notice it in the smoothie.
