This easy smoothie recipe for kids is always a hit, made with a healthy combination of strawberries, mango, cherries, and spinach.



  • 1.5 cups water
  • .5 cups orange juice
  • 4 Medjool dates (pits removed)
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen sweet cherries (pits removed)
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/4 avocado


  1. In a high-speed blender, combine the water, orange juice, dates, mango, strawberries, cherries, spinach, and avocado. Blend until very smooth, adding more water if needed to help facilitate blending.

  2. When there are no longer any chunks of fruit or spinach visible, serve right away.

Recipe Notes

Tip: Leftover smoothie makes AMAZING popsicles. Simply pour the leftover smoothie into a popsicle mold (we love this mini mold for both of my young kids) and then freeze until firm. It's a great way to get even more nutrition in your child's day!
