Lunch Smoothies

How about making smoothies for your kids lunches? We make them all the time but I never have put them in my kids lunches. I figured why couldn’t I put them in their drink containers. So today I am putting smoothies in their lunchboxes. Hopefully it goes over like a trip to Disney World. If not I will let you know tomorrow.

There are all different ways to make a smoothie. You really can’t mess it up. We use yogurt and milk. You could use only frozen fruit with soy or cows milk and skip the yogurt. My kids call this a mooothie. Below is the recipe I came up with for lunch smoothies.

You can substitute any fruit. Blueberries, raspberries, banana only, pineapple. You really can’t mess it up.

Note:the lemon juice is only to help with any browning that may occur as the smoothie sits in your child’s lunch. I also give my kids apple slices a little squirt of lemon juice in their baggie to keep them from getting brown, because then my picky kiddos won’t eat them. Because OH MY they are brown!

Heck you may just want to give these to your kids for breakfast and skip the lunch thing.

Happy lunch making!

  1. I love making smoothies, but mine are weird and probably not kid friendly because I use kale, and they are green! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Just wanted to let you know I made these this morning and they are delish! My son even drank two glasses.

  3. So, how did the smoothies hold up? I love smoothies! I put protein powder in mine.
    We use soda water or Sprite(anything with citric acid) for keeping our apples from turning brown. It doesn't add that extra flavor to them like the lemon juice does. But if your kids don't complain, then you're lucky!

  4. Yum yum yum! When I told my husband last night of your series of lunch ideas and how you put a cookie in there he looked at me like I had 3 heads! Then I explained to him the ingredients contained and he said he wishes his mom would have done such awesome things when he was young.

  5. Sue,I am sure I have gone to your blog before but today…when I click on your name up there it wont take me there. ๐Ÿ™ I am doing a week of Strawberry the first week of June! Maybe I will have to do a linky to your blog ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Check out my recipe for strawberry bread I posted on my blog, it's soooooo good! Have a berry good day! lol
