Do your kids make a lot of fuss while eating fruits? Here is how you can make interesting milkshakes for your kids to include fruits and milk in your child’s diet.
Kids get a bit fussy and choosy when it comes to eating. It takes a lot to provide proper nutrition to them at this age. Kids never say “NO” to milkshakes, and you should take this advantage. Add fruits, crushed vegetables, different cereals, etc. to the milkshakes to make them more nutritious – so you do not have to worry anymore if your kids skip the fruits and vegetables you serve. Here are the recipes of top 10 milkshakes your kids will love to have.
1. Chocolaty Biscuit Milkshake
Chocolaty milkshake is one of the favourites for your kids. Mix milk, vanilla ice-cream, and chocolate syrup in the blender and whip until frothy. Beat the crushed chocolate biscuits in the blended milkshake for a minute. Add more crushed chocolate biscuits for topping and you can also top it with whipped cream and more chocolate sauce.
2. Strawberry Banana Milk Shake
Add water to blender and add banana, sugar, and milk. Blend it for a minute. Then add vanilla essence, ice-cream, and strawberries. Blend for 1-2 minutes more. You can add fresh sliced bananas and strawberries to make it more stuffed with iron and other minerals.
3. Marvellous Mango Milkshake

5. Watermelon Milkshakes
This is a delicious summer drink your kids would love. You need cubed frozen watermelon for this. Add milk in the blender along with vanilla extract and sugar to taste; blend it with the watermelon cubes until smooth. You can avoid the sugar if you find your watermelon to be sweet enough.

8. Mint Chip Milkshake
Mix sliced and frozen banana, baby spinach, peppermint extract, fresh mint leaves, vanilla extract, and few ice cubes in milk and blend it until smooth. Add chocolate chips until ground into chunky pieces. Top it with fresh mint leaves. This is a top milkshake loaded with fruits and veggies.

Add milk in a blender and add crushed cherries and ice in it. This is an easy milkshake to prepare – as you just need to blend them until smooth and top it with whipped cream and cherries on it.
10. Chocolate and Avocado Shake
Mix up the milk, banana, avocado, cocoa powder, nutella, honey, flax seeds and few ice cubes until smooth. Kids love this healthy shake with an extra boost of vitamins from flax seeds, avocado, and banana.
Always keep in mind that you may have to blend it longer until the milkshake looks smooth and fine. You can blend less if you want fruit chunks to remain in the shake. Add less milk to make thicker milkshakes. Prepare milkshakes however your kids prefer and boost their diet. But make sure to cut down sugar and chocolate as much as you can from the milkshakes of your kids. Focus on serving milkshakes loaded with fruits and veggies. Although, your kids will love milkshakes packed with chocolate, biscuits etc; try to serve such drinks occasionally.How to encourage kids to have a glass of milk every day?
