Serving Suggestions


  • If you’re making this smoothie for a fussy toddler you could use half almond milk and half full cream dairy milk to give it a creamier taste.
  • If the chia seeds make the smoothie too bulky, just add some extra milk or water.
  • Sometimes you need a little bit of extra help to entice the kids so you could add a little Milo
