Smoothie recipes packed with probiotics and vegetables are a great way to to load kids up with nutrients, protein and fiber! Smoothies are great for making at each meal or ahead of time and kept frozen. They are portable and a great grab-and-go meal! They are kid approved and can be made in a variety of ways! Smoothies also help keep the digestive system in check, especially for those little ones who become constipated often.
Getting kids to eat healthy is a chore in itself…so when you find a recipe that is healthy and everyone likes it, it becomes a keeper! I wrote a post last week about a breakfast smoothie creation that we came up with that my kids (and I) FINALLY liked! Since then, we’ve made approximately 1,397 smoothies 🙂
I’ve edited the original recipe and wanted to share it with you…because it makes it taste just like a strawberry milkshake **which is great if you are trying to sneak in veggies and fruits to your kids!!** It works great as a healthy dessert option as well!!

What You Need:
Kale – fresh or a powder like this
Yogurt with Probiotics (the one I used was purchased from Aldi)
Protein Powder (I have since switched to this protein powder because it’s loaded with pre and probiotics, is non-gmo and has no preservatives or artificial anything and comes in soy & non-soy options)
The process remains the same, just the ingredient amounts have changed.
In a blender, add all of your ingredients and blend til smooth. I use my single serve option on my Ninja Blender…which I love!
- 15 frozen strawberries
- 1 handful of kale (optional)
- 1 scoop vanilla Protein Powder
- 1 container of strawberry probiotic yogurt or ½c of vanilla yogurt
- 3oz of milk (plus more if the shake is too thick)
- Place all ingredients into blender
- Blend until smooth (adding more milk if needed)
- Serve cold
Serve in cute little cups with straws and let the kids drink as much as they want!!
