Keep My Kids Healthy Smoothie

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

I started making this smoothie about 3 years ago as a way to get fruit into my kids in the morning. I got tired of talking about eating your fruit in the morning. Now it's a daily thing and all winter they have not had one single cold - these are highly allergic kids with asthma. I put in a .3 oz of Emergen-C Supplement, during the winter months to make sure they have enough vitamins to fend of viruses. These can be found at Trader Joe's or any health food store.


  1. I squeeze fresh orange juice for this recipe.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a blender.
  3. Blend on high for about 1 minute.
  4. Pour into a tall glass and serve with a straw.

Delicious smoothie!! I loved the fresh squeezed orange juice. I made 1/2 of the recipe for one serving. The only difference I made was my banana was also frozen. Thanks for sharing Nado!! Made as a bonus potluck tag.

Have a standard smoothie recipe that I often make, but it doesn't include oranges, so this was a nice change of pace for me! For me, Valencia oranges were the best to use! Gotta say, though ~ These ingredient amounts barely made enough for 2 tall glasses (NOT a complaint, just an observation)! A definite keeper!
