5 stars (2 ratings)
These 5 Easy Smoothies for Baby are filled with essential nutrients for growing baby while still tasting delicious!

Ingredients 

Prune Smoothie

  • 2 tbsp prune puree
  • 1 cup frozen peaches
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 pear, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cup milk of choice (see notes below)
  • 1/4 tsp ground flaxseeds (optional)

Protein Smoothie

Hidden Veggie Smoothie

Tropical Green Smoothie

Super Smart Smoothie

Instructions 

  • Place all of the ingredients of the smoothie you are making into a blender and blend for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. You may need to add in additional milk, in 1/4 cup increments, if the smoothie is too thick. You will want it pretty thin for a baby just starting out with smoothies.
  • Pour into a baby smoothie cup and serve.

Notes

Age: 8 months and up
Yield: roughly 3-4 - 3-6 ounce servings
Pouch Substitutions: if you don't have any store-bought pouches on hand, here are some great subsitutions you can use:
  • Prune Smoothie - instead of the pouch, you can use 2-3 tbsp fresh prune juice or 1 dried, pitted prune that was soaked in hot water for 10 minutes. 
  • Protein Smoothie - instead of the pouch, you can increase the banana to 1 banana. For more protein, you can add in 6-8 cooked black or white beans. 
  • Hidden Veggie Smoothie - instead of the pouch, you can add in 2-3 baby carrots and 1/4 of a sweet apple. 
  • Tropical Green Smoothie - instead of the pouch, you can add in 1/3 cup frozen pineapple and 1/8 of a ripe avocado. 
  • Super Smart Smoothie - instead of the pouch, you can add in 1/4 cup frozen mango and 10-12 baby spinach leaves. 
Storage: you can store any leftover smoothie in the fridge for 24 hours, or you can store in a freezer-safe container for up to a month. To defrost, simply take the smoothie out of the freezer the night before you want to serve it and place it in the fridge. To serve, simply shake the smoothie until all ingredients are incorporated. If it's too thick, add in a little milk and shake again. If it's too thin, place all ingredients into a blender and blend with a couple of ice cubes. 
Notes on Milk: you can use any milk you prefer in these smoothies – regular, prepared formula, breastmilk, almond, soy, or oat milk. If using plant-based milk, make sure to use a plain version with no added sugars.
