allergy-free smoothies

I hope you love these six kid-friendly allergy-free smoothie recipes as much as our family does. They are all free of the eight most common food allergens: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy and wheat.

My girls love smoothies. But with a Paleo mama and a dairy-allergic kid, we have to be a little picky about our ingredients these days. We almost exclusively use coconut milk as our smoothie base, but you can mix up the bases and ingredients in these smoothie recipes to your preference. Enjoy!

1. Blueberry Pie

Serves 2

Ingredients

2 cups coconut milk
1/2 cup blueberries
1 banana
1/2 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Method

Blend all ingredients with a regular or immersion blender. This blueberry pie smoothie recipe is sure to be a hit.

2. Frosties

Serves 2

Ingredients

1 cup coconut milk
1 frozen banana
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1/2 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup ice cubes

Method

Blend all ingredients with a regular or immersion blender.  It’s like a Frosty, but you know, not filled with ick.

3. Banana Berry

Serves 2

Ingredients

2 cups coconut milk
1  banana
1/2 cup  strawberries
1/2 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Method

Blend all ingredients with a regular or immersion blender. Banana plus strawberries with coconut milk. Can’t get simpler than that.

4. Chocolate Avocado

Serves 2

Ingredients

2 cups coconut milk
2 frozen bananas
1 avocado
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1/2 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Method

Blend all ingredients with a regular or immersion blender.

My girls love avocado, but if your kids aren’t fans, never fear. The primary taste in this treat is of bananas and chocolate. Be sure to use pure, dairy-free cocoa or cacao powder (not cocoa mix with powdered milk and sugar added).

5. Orange Julicious

Coconut milk, mandarin oranges, orange juice, plus super healthy gelatinhoney and vanilla make an amazing mock Orange Julius smoothie.

6. Shamrock

Oh yeah, you don’t need to hit up that fast food chain for a delicious green shake. Try this healthy version made with avocado and coconut milk.
