This simple blueberry smoothie for kids recipe is packed with nutrition and is a great replacement for conventional sweets.

Looking for something new to add to your children’s diet that is nutrient-dense with healthy fats and antioxidants? What about satisfying a sweet craving without the added sugar?  

If you said yes to both of those questions, this simple blueberry smoothie for kids is for you!

As we creep into warmer weather, it’s that time of year when the dreaded ice cream man comes out of hibernation and blares his tunes just in time for my children’s interest to hyper-focus on something sweet. (The worst……am I right?)

We are also approaching the summer growing season where an abundance of homegrown blueberries and strawberries will be harvested.

Whatever your reason is, here is an easy recipe to substitute for an afternoon snack, breakfast on the go, cool-down-by-the-pool treat, or an evening dessert. 

Blueberry Smoothie for Kids Recipe

Equipment:

  • Blender
  • Measuring spoon
  • Measuring cup
  • 12oz Tumbler, Sippy Cup – up to you

Ingredients:

  • Plain Greek Yogurt (or dairy alternative)
  • Fresh or Frozen Blueberries
  • Whole Milk (or dairy alternative)
  • Raw Honey
  • Ice Cubes (only if you opt for fresh blueberries)

Instructions:

Measure out your milk, or milk alternative, and pour it into your blender. I start with the liquid so that the frozen pieces blend up more efficiently.

Stir your Greek yogurt to reincorporate together. Then scoop out your yogurt and add to your blender.

Next, measure out your frozen blueberries or fresh blueberries and place them into the blender. If you choose to use fresh berries, grab ice cubes to create that frozen texture. 

Lastly, add in your honey and blend for until smooth

Why Should You Use Honey?

Honey is more of a medicine than sweetener in our house. The honey not only cuts the sour, tart flavor of the Greek yogurt by adding just a touch of sweet but also helps little ones who suffer from seasonal allergies.

 If you can find local wildflower or clover honey in your area it is the best and worth the expense.

*Never give honey to children less than 12 months of age due to the risk of botulism infection.  

Storing the Blueberry Smoothie for Kids for Later

If your little one walks away, but might go back… or takes long breaks when eating. Place the cup in the refrigerator to keep chilled until ready to serve….again.

Throw any leftovers away after 24 hours in the refrigerator.
