Nutribullet Smoothie Recipes for Kids

Nutribullet Smoothie Recipes for Kids

Since Grandma and Grandpa's sleeping habits are all over the map, once in a while they find themselves watching late night TV and the infomercials that run in the wee hours. After one such night, we were the lucky recipients of the BOGO offer from Nutribullet and received ours a couple of weeks ago. We've been devouring Nutribullet smoothies every morning and afternoon since.

I wanted to share a few Nutribullet Smoothie Recipes for Kids to keep the family running smoothly (hehe!) from morn till night. Before we got our As Seen on TV Nutribullet, I was a frustrated smoothie maker resorting to crushing ice and produce in our Osterizer blender. Now the blender is a perfect kitchen tool, but the Nutribullet takes early morning breakfast smoothies to a whole new convenience level.

Summer breakfast is a family affair, so the kids and I fill the container 3/4 of the way full with a range of fresh produce that I'll share below, add liquid and 4 ice cubes and we get the most amazingly smooth and satisfying smoothies. They attached the top, spin it closed then I do the blending, but it's safe enough for older kids to do on their own.

The spinning blades are dulled, not sharp unlike the inside of my blender! In contrast to setting down exact recipes, I want to share ideas I've had on nutritious and flavorful ingredients that can take your run of the mill breakfast smoothie to a nutrient packed power smoothie for young and old. Here's how!

Breakfast Smoothie Recipes

Start with your lightweight ingredients first adding those to the bottom. For example, I add Kale to our smoothies and drop a handful of leaves in then wash and drain. Then I add a variety of fruits and veggies on hand to the container. I finish with milk, almond milk, coconut milk or cold filtered water then finally top with a few ice cubes to give the smoothie a chill plus a creamy texture.

  • Kale

  • Banana

  • Grapefruit
  • Papaya
  • Mango
  • Apple

** Grandma Advisory: When you're first starting out with the green smoothies for the kids, add the green produce sparingly to start as it will turn the smoothie green and if you've got picky eaters like me, you'll want to go with the more standard red, orange, or blue smoothie hue. Isn't Grandma always right?!
