Kids love smoothies and they love helping too! Let your kids help put ingredients into the blender.

What you’ll need

  • Blender
  • Measuring cups
  • Sharp knife
  • Spatula or spoon


  • 1 cup Strawberries fresh, or if you use frozen berries you may not need ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup Yogurt low-fat
  • 1/2 cup Apple Juice 100%
  • 1 Banana cut into chunks
  • 4 Ice Cubes


  1. Place the apple juice, yogurt, berries and banana in a blender. Cover and process until smooth.
  2. While the blender is running, drop ice cubes into the blender one at a time. Process until smooth.


Chef’s Tips

  • Add ½ c. of silken tofu or ½ c. of peanut butter (or other nut butter) for some extra protein.
  • Kids can cut the banana with the side of a spoon. Let them decide which foods to include.
