Springalicious Easter Smoothie Recipe

If you’re looking for some super fun and healthy additions to your Easter breakfast, these smoothies are perfect! And you can feel great about providing your kids with awesome nutrition to fuel their busy holiday weekend. From our Smoothie book, kids who consume the recommended amount of fruits and veggies enjoy these lifelong benefits:

  • A lower risk for Type 2 diabetes
  • Improved immunity
  • Healthier weight
  • Better vision and skin
  • Healthier gums and teeth.
  • More energy for work and play
  • Genuine enjoyment of healthier food!
  • Stronger brain function.
  • Improved sleep.
  • A longer life

Smoothies are a great way to achieve these benefits! We had a little fun with a rabbit craft to turn these ordinary smoothies into a fun Easter activity.

Add your hard boiled egg and a pancake, and you have a complete and balanced breakfast.

Here is what we did:

Step 1) Let the kids decorate cups.

First, get creative with your faces! You can use glass cups, or clear plastic cups. For decorating supplies, get:

  • Glue (we used hot glue because it’s faster and sticks very well)
  • A sharpie marker
  • Googly eyes
  • Pom poms
  • Paper or card stock (for ears)
  • And pipe cleaners

Step 2) Choose your ears.

Next, cut triangles from paper or card stock, and punch two holes in the triangles so you can slide a straw through it for an “ear.” (See the pictures.) Give each one of your bunnies two of these. I also love how our carrot ears turned out! We just peeled a carrot, and sliced it in half, so the two sides were identical.  (I should have drawn some eyelashes on this orange guy!

Step 3) Make your smoothies

You definitely don’t have to make every color smoothie for breakfast! Feel free to choose one or two colors, and stick with it for all the smoothies. (Cleaning out your blender five times isn’t exactly a quick activity.) You can choose from all the recipes below.

Step 4) Have fun!

Remember, these kitchen memories and traditions you have with your kids are meant for bonding and having fun. If they don’t drink or eat everything you lovingly make for them, that’s OK! They’ll still remember the fun they had decorating cups together and spending time with you.

Let us know if you decide to make these for your kids!

My 2 and 3 year old love helping me make smoothies, this will add to the fun! Great idea!

Sarah Derrick says:

Hi I love the idea of smoothies but I find they always have bannan- in which my children love but it causes massive constipation. Plus I am alergic to nuts and be about to go dairy and soya free to see if children have intolerant. Soi wondered are there alternatives. Especially the banna. Thank you

Analida says:

These sound delicious, not to mention that they are adorable. If I still had young kids at home I would be making these. I am totally partial to the strawberry one.
