Summer Smoothies

Alright, so again, everyone & their mama has a smoothie go-to, but I wanted to share a few of my simple go-to's that are toddler approved (& believe me, there were a lot that were not!) There's two staples I put in all my smoothies, dates & spinach (or kale if I don't have spinach). Dates add a natural sweetness & the handful of spinach can't be tasted so why not throw it in for the extra nutritional benefits! Each smoothie is enough for 2 adults & a toddler so adjust as needed for your family :)

*tip - pour any leftover smoothie into a popsicle mould for a cool treat later!


Strawberry & Banana

1 banana

4-6 strawberries

a handful of spinach

1-2 dates

1 1/2 cups of oat milk

5 ice cubes
















Blueberry Banana & Peanut Butter

1 1/2 handfuls of frozen or fresh blueberries

1 banana

1-2 dates

a handful of spinach

5 ice cubes

1 tbsp of peanut butter

1 1/2 cups of oat milk
















Berry Cherry

1 handful of frozen or fresh blueberries

8 frozen or fresh pitted cherries

around 6 blackberries

a handful of spinach

1 date

1 1/2 cups of oat milk

5 ice cubes

1/2 cup of vanilla greek yogurt


















Aunty Angie of course approves of any kind of fruit/veggie packed smoothie. Dates are an excellent source of fiber & B vitamins. As well as folic acid, zinc and selenium (which helps your metabolism and thyroid function). They also contain more potassium than bananas and help keep blood sugars even. Dates are also an alkaline food which balances out the acidity in your body to help prevent chronic diseases like cancer.


Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, C & folid acid. It also contains twice as much iron as most other greens. Spinach, like other vegetables rich in chlorophyll, is protective against cancer. So like I said previously, why not add it in to your smoothies for a little extra boost? :)
