Yummy Tummy Super Smoothies!

Updated: Feb 16, 2021

There are times when getting kids to healthy is just impossible, so I give my kids a variety of smoothies. They taste fantastic, and the possibilities on flavors is endless. I sneak lots of healthy ingredients into smoothies, sometimes without the kids even knowing what went into them. So, I decided to share some of my smoothie recipes. They are easy for you to make on a busy day and quick when the kids are hungry and you don’t want them to snack on anything packed with sugar and unnecessary additives.

Prepackaged smoothies contain lots of sugar, additives and harmful chemicals. So, make your own! They are so good for you, less expensive, no additives and great fun for the kids to make too. I love how smoothies only require a few simple ingredients, which I usually have in my kitchen at all times. And if you don’t have all the ingredients, then you can customize your own flavours.

Date Smoothie

Dates are so nutritious and packed with natural sweetness and an abundance of fiber. Dates contain; potassium, zinc, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, and a variety of vitamins (vitamin A, K and many B-complex vitamins).

This smoothie is naturally sweet so no sweeteners need to be added to this recipe, making it quick and simple for the kids to whip up themselves.

Preparation time 10 minutes

Serves 1


1/3 cup Dates- deseeded

½ cup Milk

A pinch of Cinnamon

¼ cup crushed ice


  1. Blend the dates, cinnamon and milk for a minute on medium speed, making sure all the dates are properly blended.

  2. Add the crushed ice and blend until smooth

  3. Serve immediately


Banana and Oatmeal Smoothie

This smoothie is packed full of energy and tastes just like a bowl of porridge. a quick breakfast on a school day when you are short on time and need something fast and easy for the kids to enjoy. Bananas and Oats are very filling, full of fiber and contain antioxidants. Being a whole grain, oats are one of the healthiest breakfast foods you could possibly have. Get ready for glowing skin and strong bones!

Preparation time 10 minutes

Serves 2


1 1/2 frozen bananas

2 tablespoon peanut butter (omit from the recipe if you have allergies to nuts)

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 1/2 tablespoon honey

1/2 cup oats

300 ml milk


  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender. Blend at a medium speed for 2 minutes until smooth.

  2. Serve immediately


Strawberry and Mango Smoothie

I love the summer. It means lots of fresh fruit smoothies and homemade ice-creams. Nothing is better than a cold fresh smoothie on a hot summer afternoon. Strawberries and mangoes are in abundance these days, so we eat them all the time. These smoothies can be enjoyed with chia seeds, moringa powder, but I prefer to let the flavor of the fruit shine through. I freeze some strawberries and mangoes; therefore, I don’t add ice to this recipe. But if you are using fresh fruit then feel free to add ice.
