With warmth in the air, there’s nothing more refreshing than a homemade fresh fruit smoothie... We’ve put together some fun simple smoothie combinations for you to try with your little ones. From first tastes to older children - these can all be adapted to suit children of any age, adults included!
Our Nutribaby+ 5-in-1 food prep station is the perfect tool to use to make smoothies in a flash. Below are our top 5 favourite ingredients to use utilising what you may already have at home in your fridge or freezers. Simply place into the blender and pulse until it's the consistency you like. If it seems too thick add a splash of water, milk or juice (dependant on your child's age).
Top tip - If you have fruit that is starting to go over, bag and pop them in the freezer. If you have a little bit of time, chop these into much smaller pieces so that when the mood takes you you can pop them straight in the blender along with juice, milk or water. Why not get the little ones involved, children love helping and are always fascinated by what us adults do. Let them choose what to put in their smoothie and ask them to invent their own name for it. Why not make a big batch of smoothies and freeze for later, our Foodii Reusable Food Pouches are perfect for filling and freezing, making these a wonderfully refreshing and cooling healthy snack to grab from the freezer on those hot days.
