Smoothie Cubes

by adustyframe ~ January 21st, 2015

We like smoothies around here. I think they’re a great way to get lots of nutrients into kids and they taste good too!

Lots of times, we make yogurt smoothies but more recently, I’ve been making homemade kefir and use that for smoothies.

Nathan loves smoothies and I love seeing him slurp them down knowing all the good stuff going into his tummy.

Since he’s a little guy, he doesn’t drink much more than 1/2 c. throughout the day. When I make a batch of smoothies, it makes way more than he can drink.

One day, I decided to put the leftover smoothie into ice cube trays. When it freezes, I put the smoothie cubes in a bag and keep them in the freezer.

I try to remember to put 3 or 4 smoothie cubes in his sippy cup the night before so that they are thawed and ready for breakfast or lunch.

I like doing smoothies this way because I can make a big batch all at once and because nothing is wasted because it didn’t get drunk!

I wrote our basic smoothie ideas in this post.
