An Easy 4-Ingredient Smoothie to Get More Greens Down Your Little One


Our Go-To Green Smoothie: The Green Banana Almond

Now that your little one has grown out of the bottle stage and has turned into a picky toddler, getting them to eat greens can be a challenge.

Fortunately, we've never met a toddler who didn't love this smoothie, and with just 4 ingredients, parents love it too!

Key Ingredients:

  • 1-2 handfuls of kale 
  • 1 medium banana 
  • 1 tablespoon of almond butter 
  • Almond milk or milk of choice

Optional Add-ins:

  • cinammon to slow down sugar absorption
  • coconut oil for healthy fats
  • Chia seeds for extra antioxidants
  • ice to taste

Directions:

Add all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until your toddler's desired consistency.

To Serve:

To prevent waste and mess, pour your child's smoothie into the Toddler Tumbler. Our straw's wide design makes it perfect for smoothies, and easy to clean. It's also flow-controlled to prevent spills even when dropped.

Special Thanks:

One day I walked into one of our favorite spots, and asked "What's your most popular smoothie?" When they replied "The Green Banana Almond," I was shocked that something so simple and so green could be so popular!

Thank you to @theplantcafeorganic for creating this tasty, toddler approved recipe!

Made in the USA

"I wish I knew about these before I had my shower, and avoiding all the plastic bottles I ended up with. They will also make great glasses after bottle use is over. Also happy to see the Made in the USA mark on the product as well." -Cathryn

Easy to Clean

"The next best thing to breastfeeding and the world's best shower gift! I love that I will never again have to buy a baby bottle because I already have tons of mason jars and they are so easy to clean. Our little guy loves his bottle!" -Susan

Breast Like Shape

"The nipples are very wide, like on an actual breast, and our daughter really liked them. Early on, she would suck really hard on the other nipples and make a very strange noise. As soon as we changed over to these her feeding became effortless." -Denielle
