Try these rich and healthy shakes so that children learn to eat healthy, and can incorporate foods into their diet that they might not consume if they were not in a delicious shake.

Rich and healthy smoothies for the little ones

Beet Smoothie (Betabel) Strawberry and Lemon .Makes 2 servings


  • A few large handfuls of beet greens
  • 1 cup strawberries, frozen
  • Juice and zest of one lemon
  • 2 bananas sliced ​​and frozen
  • water to mix

It had a bunch of very red beet greens and I used them to make the most beautiful deep red smoothie with the strawberries.
In a blender, add the beet greens and enough water to blend and puree until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients until pureed and smooth.

Chocolate beet and orange smoothie

  • Juice and zest of 2 orange
  • 2 cups of almond milk
  • 4 frozen bananas
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons of hemp protein
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange extract
  • a pinch of salt

In a blender, puree the beet greens, orange juice, and zest and almond milk until very smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and again until pureed and smooth and creamy. Makes 2 servings.

Green Basic Shake

Serves 1 serving


  • 6 oz spinach
  • 6 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 4 oz mango chunks, frozen
  • water to mix

In a blender, add the spinach, romaine lettuce, and enough water for the mixture (about half a cup). Mix until pureed and smooth, add the frozen mango, banana and blend. Mixing the veggies first will help achieve a smoother consistency if like me, you haven’t had time to get a Vitamix yet. This is another of the rich and healthy shakes that you can incorporate into the children’s diet.

Strawberry banana smoothie


  • 2 frozen bananas cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 6 oz frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup of almond milk

Put all the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. Frozen fruit has a tendency to stick together and become difficult to mix when very cold, so let it sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before mixing. Serves 1 serving

Strawberry flax seed smoothie

Just two tablespoons of flax seeds, weighing 95 calories, contain more than 140% of the daily value of omega 3 fatty acids. These fatty acids can protect against diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer, and also decrease inflammation . Because the nutrients in flax seeds are better absorbed when ground ~ and it tastes so much more enjoyable! ~


  • 2 bananas frozen and sliced
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 4 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • some almonds, chopped

In a blender, combine all ingredients until pureed and smooth. Garnish with a few chopped almonds, if desired. Makes 2 servings.
