Got a kid that doesn’t like bananas?? This delicious cherry smoothie is packed with almonds for protein to help kids stay full longer. This recipe originally appeared in The Protein Smoothie Bible: a fantastic resource for delicious smoothies for kids!



  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 medium apple, peeled and cored
  • 1/4 cup whole, raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup frozen cherries


For best results, choose a sweeter variety of apple like Fuji, Red Delicious, Pink Lady, or Honey Crisp. Add all ingredients into blender, and blend until smooth. Enjoy right away while cold.


Note from Tiffany: If your blender can’t handle chopping up the almonds and keeping the smoothie smooth, try substituting 2 tbsp of almond butter for the almonds.
