7 Easy to make Smoothies even your kids will love - made with Milk!

1. Peanut Butter Banana Smoothies

Who doesn’t love the winning combination of peanut butter and banana? Adding peanut butter can help kick up the protein content so you feel full for longer. To take it to an even better level, you could even use chocolate milk instead of white milk.

Bananas are also a great smoothie fruit because they have so much fiber and potassium. That’s why this peanut butter banana smoothie has all of the right ingredients to energize you all day long.


  • 2 bananas cut into chunks
  • 2 cups of milk
  • ½ cup of peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 cups of ice cubes


2. The Classic Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Strawberries and bananas are the ultimate classic fruit combination. It tastes great in any form you try, from candy to juice. For those picky children (or adults), this is a safe bet. If you have some strawberry lovers in your household, you can try using strawberry milk to get even more of that flavor packed in the glass.


  • 2 cups of frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 1 banana, peeled and in chunks

  • 1 ¼ cups of milk
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon of almond extract
  • A pinch of salt

This is a smoothie you can get away with eating for dessert! It’s just like a milkshake, but better for you and it won’t cause a sugar crash. If you’re craving a creamsicle or an orange soda, put those cravings to rest with this delicious, healthier alternative.


  • 1 ½ cups of orange juice
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 banana (not too ripe)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
