Ingredient notes

  • Rolled Oats:

    • The package should say “old-fashioned oats” or “rolled oats”, "instant oatmeal" or "steel-cut oats" have a funny texture in this recipe

    • Almond butter:

      • Look for almond butter without any sugar added. And ideally the fewer ingredients listed on the label, the better!

  • Almond butter and almond milk:

Grown-Up Tips

Grown-up Pro Tip

  • Smoothies are a great way for kids to begin experimenting in the kitchen. Try making the recipe once as written, then experimenting! Here are some suggestions:

    • Mango not your thing? Try using strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or peaches instead. Or a combination!

    • Include spinach or kale to give your drink a vitamin boost. It doesn’t change the overall flavor.

    • Try it with different kinds of milk (cow, soy, almond, cashew, etc.) and nut butters (almond, peanut, sunflower, cashew, etc.)

    • Want it to be super cold and have an icy texture? Include 2 cups of ice in the mixture.

This Recipe is Dietician Approved!

Smoothies can make for a healthy, well-rounded snack or a complete meal replacement. For a snack, combine fresh or frozen fruits, vegetables, and liquid for a lighter smoothie option. To boost a smoothie’s “staying power” as a meal (like this recipe), be sure to also include a source of protein and/or fat to the fruits, vegetables, and liquids in order to keep you full longer.
