Fruit Smoothies

Now that we’re starting to see warmer weather, a fruit smoothie can be the perfect way to rehydrate and also double as a healthy snack as an alternative to snacks that are high in refined sugar or salt.


6 serves 25 serves 60 serves
Milk 600mL 2.5 litres 6 litres
Yoghurt 300mL 1.75 litres 3 litres
Chopped fruit (see tips) 1½ cups 6 cups 15 cups


  1. Blend milk, yoghurt and chopped fruit in blender until smooth.
  2. Pour and serve straight away.

Each serve provides:

  • ½ children’s serve of fruit*
  • 1 ½ children’s serve of milk/alternatives** (yoghurt)

Allergy Modification:

  • For a milk protein or lactose free option, substitute the milk with an equal measure of calcium fortified soy or rice drink and substitute yoghurt with soy yoghurt or coconut milk yoghurt.


  • Kids can help by garnishing each smoothie with fresh pieces of fruit.
  • Try the following fruit ideas: bananas, strawberries, blueberries, canned peaches, frozen berries.
  • Making smoothies is a great way to use leftover fruit and milk at the end of the week.

* One children’s serve of fruit is equal to half a serve in the Australian Dietary Guidelines.
** One children’s serve of milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives is equal to just under half a serve in the Australian Dietary Guidelines.
