Sweet and Nutritious Summer Smoothies

Delicious, nutritious and fun to make, there’s a smoothie out there for everyone. Best of all, they are quick, require few ingredients, and are kid-approved!

No special equipment is needed for these sweet smoothies. You can whip up quick grab-and-go smoothies in a specialised “bullet blender”, or you toss and blend all of the ingredients in a standard blender for larger portions.

Here are some of our favourite smoothie recipes:

The Cran-Raspberry Smoothie

One Serving

Super fast and simple, here’s what you need for this smoothie recipe:

  • Half a small package of fresh raspberries (can also use frozen)
  • 100ml cranberry juice
  • 100ml natural yoghurt (or french vanilla for extra sweetness)
  • 50ml milk (any kind will do)

The Dairy-Free Berry Delight 

Five Servings

If you have leftover raspberries and cranberry juice, here’s another recipe to try:

  • 250ml cranberry juice (can also use pomegranate)
  • 250ml non-dairy milk (silken tofu, soy, almond, coconut or hemp work well)
  • 500ml frozen mixed berries
  • 30ml maple syrup or honey (optional)

The Green Goodness Smoothie

Two Servings

Have a hard time sneaking greens into your kids’ diet? Give this smoothie a try:

  • 1 sliced banana
  • 155g green grapes
  • 200g natural or vanilla yoghurt
  • 1/2 cored and chopped apple
  • 60g fresh spinach leaves (can also substitute with frozen)

The Tropical Bliss Smoothie

One Serving

This smoothie is so simple even a toddler can help put it together!

  • 1 large banana
  • 1/4 fresh peeled and cubed pineapple
  • 250ml of orange, apple or pineapple juice
  • 4 ice cubes

The Sweet Summer Treat

Five Servings

This smoothie is packed with so many nutrients it can be considered a whole meal! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 125ml almonds, whole
  • 250ml dates, packed and with no pits
  • 80ml cocoa powder
  • 250ml boiling water
  • 250ml milk (or non-dairy milk)
  • A handful of ice cubes

This smoothie requires just a bit more work. Start by adding the almonds, dates, cocoa powder, and water to your blender. Let it sit for up to ten minutes unblended. Pour in the milk and ice cubes, and then run your blender at high speed until the smoothie is thick and frothy.

Change how you serve your smoothies!

Rather than serve your smoothies as a drink every time, pour the smoothie into reusable Popsicle holders and freeze them, or serve them as a smoothie bowl. You can top your smoothie bowl up with chopped up fruit, chia seeds, hemp hearts, almonds, granola – whatever you and your kids enjoy!

The sizing & fit of Peachymama nursing clothes are specially designed for you and your ‘after baby’ body.  This means that if you were say, an AU/UK ’S’ (8-10) before bubs came along, you’ll most likely be the same now in Peachymama sizing. 

Find out for yourself

Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust, waist and hips. When measuring your bust we recommend you wear your nursing bra.
