School day smoothies

  • These are delicious eaten frozen. Packed in a school lunch box, they will melt and be drinkable by lunchtime.
  • Use whatever combination of fresh fruit, yoghurt and juice/milk you prefer. You could even try freezing a Green smoothie .
  • Obviously, adjust quantities depending on the size of your receptacles. You could use plastic bottles or jars – as long as you can seal them tightly with a lid.
  • You could use this Brainy breakfast smoothie recipe for a morning boost yourself or make double for you and the kids.
  • If you have a child that is resistant to fruit flavours then try this Banana smoothie with Milo. That chocolatey goodness will hide the banana flavour.
  • In summer you can try this Blackberry and peach smoothie or even use tinned peaches in the off season.
  • You can't go past the tried and true Banana smoothie. It's a winner for kids all year round.
  • If you are trying to get more green veggies in then you can try this Kid-friendly green smoothie and call it Ninja Turtle juice.
