Five Thermomix Smoothies That Kids Love

Thermomix smoothie mixed berry

Ah berries… so good for you, and so delicious.  This has got to be one of the best healthy smoothies for kids due to the high levels of antioxidants in the berries.

I try to have some frozen berries in the freezer always, and then buy fresh ones when the price is right (which is rare for raspberries, I have to say.)

Simple Mixed Berry Thermomix Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 100g raspberries, blueberries and strawberries (frozen or fresh if you have them)
  • 1 huge tbs natural yoghurt
  • 250 ml milk of your choice
  • I also add a walnut half or two when I make this for the kids

Instructions
Weigh everything into the Thermomix.
Blend at speed 8 for 30 seconds.
Scrape down and blend for another 10 – 20 seconds.
Pour and drink quickly!
This makes 500ml of smoothie. That is enough for two kids-size glasses or one hungry teenager or adult breakfast on the go.

Banana cinnamon smoothie 2 copy
This is a breakfast staple at our house.

It’s a very simple recipe, which is handy as I’m often feeling quite simple myself in the mornings. Life is complicated enough without complicating breakfast.

Top tip: always have some chunks of banana in the freezer in case you run out of fresh bananas.

Banana and Cinnamon Thermomix Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 2 small bananas
  • 250 ml milk (one cup)
  • 1 tbs thick plain yoghurt
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • a couple of walnuts if you fancy
  • one Medjool date if you fancy

Instructions

Blend in the Thermomix for 40 seconds at speed 7

This makes about 500ml which is enough for two children or one hungry adult.

We love how foamy the Thermomix makes our smoothies. It makes a much lighter smoothie than one made using a stick blender.

We started off making orange juice in the Thermomix, then realised we could add whole oranges into our smoothies too.

Orange and Banana Thermomix Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 2 small bananas
  • 1 orange
  • 200ml milk of your choice
  • 2 tbs plain yoghurt
  • Other possible ingredients: a date, couple of walnut halves, blueberries

Instructions

  1. Simply peel the bananas and orange (I cut the peel off with a sharp knife.)
  2. Pop them into the Thermomix with a handful of ice cubes.
  3. Blend on 9 for one minute.
  4. Check and blend more if needed.
  5. Add the milk and yoghurt and any other ingedients you have chosen.
  6. Blend 20 seconds at speed 8.
  7. Have a taste, if you think it needs to be thinner, just add more milk.
  8. Pour out for the people who fancy that one.
  9. Add half a cup of frozen blueberries into what’s left and whizz that up and add water/ice as desired.

This recipe makes enough for two children or one starving adult.

How fab to have a smoothie with veggies in it.

Prettily pink, and yes the kids do drink it.

    Hi Seana, I’ve been hearing a lot about the thermomix machines since I moved to Australia. I’m originally from Ireland and had never heard of them before. Most people over here swear by them – I assume you are the same? It really does seem to be a quick fix in the kitchen and with a 2 year old and another on the way it might just be the thing we are looking for. They are kind of expensive though 🙁

      Hi there, they are super expensive! I didn’t have a blender or juicer and so it would have cost a bit to buy those. I do use mine every single day … and there are heaps of simple recipes for families, especially on my friend MrsDPlus3’s blog. If you can scrape the casj together (or get one of their deals with zero interest, worth waiting for) I would recommend getting one.

    1. says: Seana Smith

      Yes, I do… not a lot but a little… but many parents I know would never ever… I’ve got slacker as the kids keep coming….

      In Poland, there is a very popular drink named Inka. We use to call it cereal “coffee” because it’s a lot like coffee, great substitute, save for kids. Maybe you have something similar in Australia? I’ve seen translations as melt coffee, cereal drink or chicory coffee.
