Vegan Hulk Green Lantern Monster Smoothie for Kids Recipe


Ever since Mia stopped breastfeeding at 18 months old, she has been OBSESSED with smoothies. By obsessed, I mean it is the first thing she thinks about when she wakes up in the morning. She is 2 years old and still asks for hundreds of "doosies" per day. She drinks about 3 smoothies a day. I vary what I put in them so she isn't having the same thing and don't always use store-bought plant milks. A lot of the time I just add more oats and use filtered water which gives that milky finish. I throw in all types of veggies too, carrots, kale, beetroot, cucumbers and lots of different fruits, nuts and seeds. If you are doing a chocolate smoothie, it masks flavours even more so you can fill it with all kinds of things! 

Mimi was obsessed with monsters a while back so this was her "monster doosie". Bella is only 5 months old at the moment but it won't be long until she wants "doosies" too! 

I just think this is an amazing idea for any boys or girls who need encouragement for eating meals. Call it whatever you want! Trust me, no judgement here. We even make a "poopy doosie" in our household. Whatever you call it, we hope that your kids love these as much as ours do! Enjoy! *monster growl*. 



200ml plant milk
200ml filtered water
1 overripe banana
1 big handful baby spinach (we use frozen)
1/2 tablespoons nuts/seeds
1 tablespoon rolled oats
3 dates



  1. Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy.
  2. Serve immediately and enjoy!

  • You could call this smoothie: The Hulk, Green Lantern, monster, Tinker Bell, witch, slime, goo, snot smoothie etc...
  • Pour any leftovers into icy pole moulds and enjoy later on a warm day!
  • Leftovers can be sealed and stored in the fridge for one day.

Vegan Mermaid Princess Fairy Smoothie for Kids



Ever since Mia stopped breastfeeding at 18 months old, she has been OBSESSED with smoothies. By obsessed, I mean it is the first thing she thinks about when she wakes up in the morning.

I throw in all types of veggies too, carrots, kale, beetroot, cucumbers and lots of different fruits, nuts and seeds. If you are doing a chocolate smoothie, it masks flavours even more so you can fill it with all kinds of things! 

Mimi is obsessed with mermaids at the moment so this is her "mermaid doosie" but was previously her "princess doosie" when she was a princess fanatic. Bella is only 5 months old at the moment but it won't be long until she wants "doosies" too! 

I just think this is an amazing idea for any boys or girls who need encouragement for eating meals. Call it whatever you want! Trust me, no judgement here.

3 Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Recipe


This is a recipe I use regularly. It is a raw (or almost raw?) 3 ingredient chocolate that you can use for dipping, freezing, coating or just eating on its own. I love to pour it into mini patty pans and allow to set in the fridge or freezer. It is such a smooth chocolate... just melts in your mouth! I love it. I posted a photo of them and asked on our social media pages what you all thought they were. Most of you thought they were peanut butter cups! I can definitely see how. They aren't peanut butter cups, however, you could definitely add a dollop of peanut butter in the middle! You could also try rum and raisin, fruit and nut, orange peel etc... Hope you love them!





EQUAL AMOUNTS OF:
    coconut oil
    cocoa 
    maple/agave syrup


  1. Add all ingredients to a bowl and heat it up carefully until the coconut oil has JUST melted.
  2. Stir until all ingredients have melted and the cocoa has dissolved.
  3. Pour into patty pans and place in the fridge or freezer until set.
  4. Eat from the fridge. Enjoy.



  • Keep them refrigerated so they do not melt.
