Green Smoothies for the Little Ones

Jessica Stackowicz


By Jessica Stackowicz

Smoothies are currently our favorite summer snack – They are a great way to get my daughter to eat loads of fruits and green veggies, and they make for a fun activity. The following recipes are great for kids of all ages and can be modified as the harvest changes.

We like our smoothies thick with frozen fruit so they’re almost like ice cream. Here are a few of our favorite recipes:

Green Hydrater

  • 2 cups Coconut water
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 2 cups frozen pineapple
  • 1 avocado

Green Ginger Peach

  • 1 ¼ cup filtered water
  • 2 handfuls fresh baby spinach
  • 2 cups frozen peeled and sliced peaches
  • 1 tsp grated ginger (or more if you like it strong)
  • 2 tsp raw local or organic honey

Berry Green

  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • ½ cup frozen banana

*The spinach in these recipes can be replaced with any dark leafy green (kale, swiss chard etc)

**Always blend your greens with the liquid before adding the rest of the fruit


Green Milkshake

  • 1 ½ cup almond milk
  • 1 ½ cup frozen sliced bananas*
  • 1 scoop Amazing Grass Green Superfood Original


*Tip: To freeze bananas easily, slice them into ½” pieces and lay them out on a cookie sheet and place in freezer until frozen. Store them in an airtight container in the freezer.
