Ginger, maple syrup, carrot juice, almond milk and vanilla yoghurt shouldn’t work together, but it totally does. The little ones won’t have a clue just how many antioxidants and nutrients they’re devouring in this kid-friendly smoothie by Nutrirecipes.

This lovely number by Kids Eat by Shanai takes a little longer to make, but is oh-so-worth-it! To get those pretty lines you’ll need to freeze between each layer, but the resulting concoction of spinach, avocado, banana, mango, yoghurt and milk is pretty spesh.

Hot tips: serve your smoothies up in cute jam jars, pop in a colourful paper straw and you’re good to go. And any leftovers? Freeze them into ice pops!
