I love making super simple smoothies as a way to offer nutrients that my kids don’t always eat straight up, and this super straight forward avocado smoothie is a favorite. It’s creamy, satisfying, and perfect to make for the kids—or to share with them!

TIP: This makes two small portions or one larger portion. You can save half for the following day if needed.

Ingredients in Avocado Mango Smoothie

To make this easy smoothie recipe, you’ll need:

  • Milk or kefir
  • Avocado
  • Frozen diced mango

TIP: I prefer to use unsweetened plain or vanilla nondairy milk or plain or vanilla kefir in this. I really, really love it with whole milk vanilla kefir as it’s super creamy and delicious.

Can I use other fruit?

Sure! Banana also works well and I bet frozen strawberries would be delicious too. You can also throw in some spinach if you want some veggies in the mix!

Can I use frozen avocado?

You can! They are great in smoothies. You may need a smidge more milk since using frozen avocado will make a thicker smoothie.

What’s the best way to serve a smoothie to kids?

I prefer to serve them in a reusable pouch or in a small open cup with a straw. Try it both ways and see if your kids have a preference.

Mango Avocado Smoothie for Baby

This is a great baby smoothie since it’s simple and also delicious. Use nondairy unsweetened milk or plain unsweetened kefir as your liquid and serve in a reusable pouch. (We started using those pouches at 7 months and they are an awesome tool!)

Tips for Making the Best Avocado Smoothie

  • I like making this with whole milk vanilla kefir, but plain nondairy milk or kefir work.
  • I don’t love using regular milk in smoothies as I find that it can separate, but if you plan to serve right away, that will work just fine!
  • Sweeten with a little honey (for kids over 1) or maple syrup to taste as needed.
  • You can use fresh or frozen avocado.
  • If the mixture is to thick for your blender, add a smidge more milk.
  • You can refrigerate any leftovers for up to 24 hours in the fridge. It will have a texture more like drinkable yogurt than a smoothie on the second day.

I’d love to hear if you try this recipe with your kids, so please comment and rate the recipe below to share!
