All of my kids are big fruit eaters and one of their favorite ways to eat fruit is in smoothies. One of their favorite smoothies is this blueberry strawberry carrot protein smoothie. I usually make it for breakfast.
I love that when they drink a smoothie they are not only getting an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals but they are also getting a nice big dose of protein and healthy probiotics.
Blueberry Strawberry Carrot Protein Smoothie
Like all kids, they go through eating times when they refuse to eat various foods. Much to James’ disappointment, what they refuse to eat it is usually the meat or the protein source of that meal. If I notice that they have not eaten much protein in the last few meals I will make them a protein packed smoothie.
After struggling with picky eaters who refuse to eat protein and veggies, I came up with a healthy and tasty way to get that much needed protein and veggies in their diets. This Blueberry Strawberry Carrot Protein Smoothie is a sure-fire, healthy way to feed those peaky eaters.
The girls’ actually came up with this blueberry strawberry carrot protein smoothie. They wanted me to make blueberry and strawberry smoothie. I asked what else they wanted in it and Doodles said carrots. So that’s what I did.
During the summer I use fresh blueberries and strawberries but in the winter or whenever I can’t find the fresh fruit I use frozen. And bonus! By using steamed carrots I’m also able to sneak in some veggies too!
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cup strawberries
- 6 oz milk (coconut, almond, cow’s)
- 1 cup steamed carrots
- 1 scoop unsweetened, vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
- Add in blueberries and strawberries and carrots in blender.
- Add protein powder and vanilla yogurt.
- Top with milk.
- Put lid on blender and blend until smooth. If needed, scrap down the sides and blend again.
- Pour into glasses and enjoy.
Makes about two 24 oz servings. I usually divide this into about 3 kid servings.
- To make this dairy free or vegan friendly substitute the yogurt for coconut or almond yogurt and the protein powder for dairy free/vegan protein powder like pea protein.
Do your kids drink smoothies? What is their favorite flavor?
