I’m a sucker for all things cute, and these guys fit the bill perfectly. Over at the Bearfootbaker, Lisa has a lock on fun recipes for your family. Don’t forget to grab big Marshmallows, I am tempted to try these vegan ones as I have some a vegan nephew who I love to cook for. Always use Milk chocolate chips of course. This one will delight the kids as well as fill their bellies with fruity goodness.
Kitchen Fun with my 3 sons! brings you another super cute smoothie. I may have only one son, but he is going to love this. Chocolate, peanut butter, and bananas would be on my sons list of favorite foods, so this is a no brainer. Grab your favorite chocolate milk, and peanut butter and get the family together for a tasty sweet treat. The decorations are of course optional, but why not give your family the treat of making them super cute. And who doesn’t always have a box of cheerios just laying around waiting for a rainy day.
You can also be a Mom on Timeout after these amazing frozen smoothie pops are finished. These are packed with berries, yogurt, and absolutely simple to make.

These crack me up, and although they are designed for Easter, they will delight your kids anytime of the year. Amy and Natalie over at Super Healthy Kids know that healthy kids are happy and active kids. So keep your busy kids full of vitamins and nutrients with these. They are perfect for parties, when you want to take the extra effort to wow your guests. Get some colorful paper straws, markers, poms, and hot glue to take these to the next level. I always have a pack of plastic cups stowed away when doing tons of dishes doesn’t sound like fun, and if you do the same, you and your patience will thank me!

After browsing around The Taylor House not only do I have another perfect smoothie recipe, I am inspired to do more! What a great website and blogger. My son is super active, but he isn’t the biggest fan of meat. Which is a great source of protein. So I am always looking for a great way to get him some of the stuff he needs to grow strong. So this is just what we need! Plus it’s delicious. Super filling and full of yum! Get a fancy, but unbreakable mug and your kids will feel like royalty while drinking these.
This tropical storm won’t threaten your home, but instead bring a belly full of goodness to your kids. Strawberries, Mango, Papaya, and Carrot Juice. Nothing but healthy stuff here. Really can’t get more healthy than this one. Your kids will have more than enough vitamins after they devour this guy. Yummy Sprout suggests freezing your fruit first to make sure this has the perfect smoothie consistency, so make sure you have a great Blender to get these going. I have that Kitchenaid, and it hasn’t let me down in almost a decade.
Fresh Planet Flavor has outdone themselves here. I mean it. Look at that picture, it’s crazy. I need this in my life right now.

Kiwi, spinach, and BEE POLLEN! make this about the most healthy drink your family will ever try, and I promise it won’t disappoint. Try it today!
All I have to do is mention Unicorns and my daughter will be begging to make this with me. Talk about beautiful. Oh and don’t let the bright colors throw you off, it’s also healthy. Purple cabbage takes what could be a sugary treat to the next level and makes sure that you are only giving your kids the best. In the Kids Kitchen encourages parents to get the kids involved in the kitchen and I wholeheartedly agree. They will have so much fun making this with you. I use a professional whip cream dispenser such as this one, and we love it. It’s great to know exactly what is going into your foods, and making your own whipped cream assures that! Grab some Unicorn style Edible Glitter and take this treat over the top!
The title of this simple drink from Know Your Produce may say juice, but at its heart its a healthy and simple smoothie. They also suggest using part of it for popsicles, so you know I am in. Can’t wait to try this guy both ways, and neither can my kids. We make watermelon juice on occasion in the summer, and this makes it even better. My husband bought this amazing Watermelon and Pumpkin tapper for parties and it is a hit! People freak out seeing their drink coming straight out of the melon and I think I may have to try this juice in a big Watermelon next time! Give it a try and impress your friends.
