Cold Buster Smoothie (and popsicles) for Toddler + Kids

It’s that time of year again – sickness season! 😷

And boy, do kiddos like to come home from preschool, daycare, school or the indoor play place with lots and lots of germs! Which, or course, they like to share with you and everyone else in the family 😉

No matter how vigilant you are about washing their hands and avoiding people that are sick, kids always seem to find some kind of cold, flu or other bug.

This smoothie is loaded with vitamin C, natural electrolytes and probiotics which will boost the immune system, aid in digestion as well as provide extra hydration. You can serve this smoothie as a preventive smoothie to boost your kiddos immune system or you can also serve this when they are sick and it will help speed up their immune system to knock out whatever bug they have.

Plus, this smoothie makes a-m-a-z-i-n-g popsicles to help soothe sore throats as well provide essential nutrients and hydration.

Kids will think this smoothie and popsicles are treats but they are actually natures medicine.

How to Make Smoothie

  • Load the Blender: place all of the ingredients into the blender.
  • Blend: turn the blender on high for 1-2 minuets or until creamy.
  • Pour: pour into a toddler or kids cup, the leftovers are for you:)

How to Make Popsicles

  • Make the Smoothie: make the smoothie per the recipe.
  • Add Honey: I added one more tablespoon of honey to our popsicles so that they would soothe our sore throats.
  • Pour into Popsicle Molds: pour the smoothie into the popsicle molds.
  • Freeze: freeze the popsicles for at least 4 hours or until solid all the way through. I love these mini molds as they make smaller popsicles which I find are a great fit for young or sick kids.


You can easily have your kids help you make this smoothie.


  • Toddlers can help measure and pour the ingredients into the blender.
