This recipe makes for fresh fruit that you can drink! It's best served cold over ice.

Shirley Temple

Rating: 4.67 stars

A favorite drink for little girls and party-goers alike. Some grenadines may have alcohol in it, so be sure to check for that before you make this for children.

Banana Bonkers

Rating: 4.17 stars

Wonderful tall, cool banana drink that is great on the deck in the hot afternoon. Kids love this also. Optionally, you can mix in 3 eggs which have been whipped in the blender.

Butterbeer

Rating: 4 stars
23
This is a slightly different take on the Harry Potter-style Butterbeer recipes you find out there. It is not as cloyingly sweet as most, has no milk or alcohol, and can be very addictive, according to my son.

Mexican Strawberry Water (Agua de Fresa)

Rating: 4.65 stars
94
Fresh fruit waters, or Aguas de Frutas, made with crushed or blended fruit are a common and popular drink all over Mexico. This recipe is extremely flavorful and refreshing, especially when fresh strawberries are in season.

This naturally sweet and creamy, frosty cold smoothie packs a lot of flavor and a nutritious punch.

Berry Delicious

Rating: 4.62 stars

After much experimentation I finally got this smoothie recipe right. Frozen berries, strawberry yogurt and a whole banana are pureed in blender for a delicious, drinkable treat.

Teddy Bear Juice

Rating: 4.92 stars
12
A drink to help soothe sick little ones. Only add honey for children over 1 year old. My daughter calls this 'Teddy Bear' juice because of our honey bear. Great for a sore throat and for people who don't enjoy hot tea. I let my daughter drink as much of this as she wants when she is ill, especially when she has no appetite.

Avocado Blueberry Smoothie

Rating: 4.27 stars
26
It's not GREEN, so my kids love it! No sweetener needed; the blueberries do the trick. Very delicious and nutritious! If you use fresh blueberries, you may want to add ice but frozen blueberries makes it the perfect consistency.

Easy Green Monster Smoothie

Rating: 4 stars

This is a smoothie packed full of veggies. Even your picky kids will love these 'fruity' smoothies.

Rating: 4.6 stars

This is my go-to smoothie of choice. My kids (all 4) absolutely love it for the flavor as well as the purple color. It's fun, easy, and the kids can even help out! Feel free to add or subtract any of the fruit, honey, or sugar to your taste preference.
