If you are looking for some super healthy additions to your Easter breakfast, these Smoothies would be perfect! From our Smoothie book, kids who consume the recommended amount of fruits and veggies:
- Have a decreased risk for Type 2 diabetes

- Maintain a healthier weight
- Have better vision and skin
- Have healthier gums and teeth.
- Have more energy to play
- Have a preference for healthier food!
- Have better brain function.
- Have better sleep.
- Plus, live longer!
Smoothies are a great way to achieve this! 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.
Springalicious Easter Smoothie Recipe
Here is what we did:
Step 1) Let the kids decorate cups.
You can use glass cups if you have them, or clear plastic cups work as well. For decorating supplies, get:
- Glue (we used hot glue because it’s faster and sticks very well)
- A sharpie marker
- Googly Eyes
- Pom poms
- And pipe cleaners
Step 2) Choose your ears.
The straws were fun, but I love our carrot ears! We 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
I don’t recommend making every color smoothie for breakfast! Choose a color, and stick with it for all the smoothies! Cleaning out your blender 5 times isn’t exactly a quick activity. (all recipes below)
Step 4) Have fun!
Don’t forget that 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, it’s OK! They are going to remember the fun they had decorating cups together and spending time with you.
