Apple smoothie is a delicious way to start your day with the goodness of milk and apples and with no added sugar. It is ready in less than 5 minutes – now you have no reason to skip breakfast.
Milk was so entwined in my daily life growing up – no matter what, my brother and I had to drink two glasses of milk every day once for breakfast and the other right before bedtime. Drinking milk was a non-negotiable part of our routine – and it wasn’t a real negotiation at all, we loved the creamy goodness and flavor and we’d lap up our milk faster than a cat!
Did you know that kids these days aren’t drinking enough milk?
This is concerning because kids aren’t getting enough of milk’s nutrients, like calcium, potassium and vitamin D that they need to grow. That’s why milk-based smoothies are a good way to encourage kids to get more milk.
With so many extracurricular activities that the kids are enrolled in these days, bedtimes are getting delayed and waking them up early in the morning for school can be a real challenge. And it’s hard if you have kids like mine who resist breakfast and prefer sleeping to eating.
Thank goodness for smoothies!
I blend them up quickly in the morning and pour it in a travel smoothie cup. That way my kid can chug it down on her way to school and I can be happy about the fact that she is having a nutritious drink that will keep her satiated until lunch.
And then there are moments like this when we have some time in the morning to savor a glass of milk along with a few laughs.
So if you or your kids have an early start don’t just leave the house on an empty stomach. Chug down a glass of milk or if you have a few minutes make an apple smoothie.

How to make Apple smoothie?
Making apple smoothie is easy. Just add chopped apples, dates and blend.
Tips for a creamy and delicious apple smoothie
- Chop the apples right before making the smoothie to prevent discoloration.
- You could always add sugar or honey to sweeten the smoothie but I prefer dates because of it’s superfood status.
