“I know it’s supposed to be a kids smoothie, but this one is so delicious it has become one of my favorite smoothies as well. To tone down the sweetness, I substituted coconut water for the apple juice.”

Apple Kiwi Bunga, a copycat Smoothie King Kids recipe, is a vibrant, fun, and nutritious drink that’s perfect for children. This smoothie combines the tropical sweetness of bananas and kiwis with the refreshing crispness of apple juice. With a hint of kale and a boost from the kids multivitamin powder, this smoothie not only tastes great but also provides essential nutrients, making it a delightful and healthy treat for your little ones.

This smoothie is packed with vitamins and minerals essential for growing kids. Bananas provide potassium and energy, while kiwis are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants. Kale adds a dose of fiber, iron, and calcium, crucial for strong bones and digestion. Apple juice offers hydration and additional vitamins, and the Kids Multivitamin Boost ensures a comprehensive nutrient profile.

They have relatively few calories, are rich in nutrients such as vitamin C and potassium, are full of potent antioxidants including flavonoids and animes, and are high in dietary fiber. Studies have shown that bananas can improve insulin sensitivity and may improve kidney health.

A single cup contains 200% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A, 135% of the recommended vitamin C, and 685% of the recommended vitamin K, among many others. Kale also provides very high levels of the powerful antioxidants quercetin and kaempferol, known to lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation.

Equipment Needed

Smoothie Making Tools
Smoothie Making Tools

A standard blender is all that is required to make these delicious smoothies. If you are making it for just one person, we recommend using the truly amazing personal NutriBullet Ultra as it is super-quick to set up and very easy to clean.

If you are making them for more than one person, we recommend a higher-end Vitamix blender that can process larger loads more efficiently.

For overnight storage, we recommend using a glass or BPA-free airtight container with a resealable lid.


How To Make The Smoothie King Kids Apple Kiwi Bunga

The Smoothie King Kids Apple Kiwi Bunga is very easy to make:

  • Step 1: Place bananas, kale, kiwis, apple juice, and Kids Multivitamin Boost into a blender and secure the lid.
  • Step 2: Start the blender on its lowest speed and steadily ramp up to its highest speed. This will reduce wear and tear on the motor and blades, facilitate a more consistent blend, and help prevent food splatter onto the lid and sides.
  • Step 3: Blend for approximately 30 seconds or until a smooth consistency is achieved.
  • Step 4: Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the refrigerator in an airtight container to enjoy later.

Recipe Tips And Substitutions

For ease of use, we recommend peeling and slicing a number of bananas, putting them in a freezer bag, and storing them in your freezer for quick access.

If you don’t have frozen fruit, or simply prefer to use fresh fruit (we totally get that), we recommend adding 1/2 cup of ice to chill your smoothie and give it a pleasing icy texture.

You can substitute spinach for kale if your kids prefer a milder taste.

Adding a spoonful of chia seeds or flaxseeds can increase the fiber and omega-3 content.

Smoothie Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this smoothie without a Kids Multivitamin Boost?

Absolutely! Multivitamin powder is a great addition for an extra nutrient boost, but this smoothie is already packed with vitamins and minerals from the fruits and kale. You can simply leave out the powder and still have a nutritious and delicious drink.

What other greens can I use if my child doesn’t like kale?

If your child isn’t a fan of kale, spinach is a fantastic alternative. It has a milder flavor and still provides essential nutrients like iron, calcium, and vitamins A and C. Another option could be baby greens or even a small amount of avocado for added creaminess and healthy fats.
