Smoothie Sippy Cups for Baby + Toddlers we LOVE:
- Thinkbaby Thinkster – love that it is leakproof and easy for small kiddos to drink through. I cut the tips off of both ends of the silicon straw so my little ones could have an easier time sucking their smoothies out. Easy to clean!
- Munchkin Click Lock – a great sippy cup that if you take off the bottom straw attachment works great for a baby or toddler smoothie cup. Easy to clean!
- Re-Play Straw Cups – a great company doing great things for recycling! Love their new straw cups! Are not leak-proof but my kids had a hard time spilling anything from them. Fun colors and easy to clean (with a straw ).
- Simple Goods – Stainless Steel Sippy Cup with Straw – great metal option for kids in a great 8 or 12oz size. Is spill-resistant and my kids only spilled these when one got knocked over and forgotten about.
- Ello Rise Insulated Stainless Steel Bottle – this is the smoothie cup my kids use all the time. It’s a great size, easy to clean and made of stainless steel. Would highly recommend it!
Avocado Green Smoothie Ingredients
- Banana: full of potassium, fiber and other nutrients that help with digestion and heart health. Makes this smoothie super thick and frothy.
- Avocado: full of essential healthy fats and nutrients that help promote brain, eye, bone and muscle health! Great superfood for baby!
- Spinach: loaded with over a dozen flavonoid antioxidants, fiber, folate and vitamins K and A. These nutrients help with boosting immunity, helps support eye, skin, skin and bone health as well as protects against cancer cells. A must-have veggie for baby!
- Plain yogurt: filled with probiotics as well as healthy fats that boost brain functions as well as help baby have a healthy gut. You can use any cow or plant-based plain yogurt in this recipe.
- Liquid: you can use any liquid you prefer in this recipe – water, cow’s or plant-based milk, formula or breastmilk.
- Chia Seeds: I love adding in a pinch of chia seeds into this smoothie because they are loaded with antioxidants, omega-3’s, protein and fiber. Adding chia seeds is optional but highly recommend. This is a great brand that we use.
How to Make Avocado Green Smoothie

- Blend: on medium-high for 1-2 minutes, scrapping down sides if needed.
