My 10 month old loves smoothies and has been enjoying them for several months now. Typically, they are a great way for mommy to buy some time while the baby feeds himself breakfast.

On a good day, smoothie time can provide mommy with 10-15 minutes of freedom to drink a cup of coffee or, gasp, prepare her own breakfast.

All of that changed with today’s Avocado Blueberry Smoothie. It was gone in 2 minutes. Literally. I turned away to pour myself a cup of coffee and by the time I turned around, it was half gone.

If you have never added avocado to a smoothie, I encourage you to give it a try. The rich, creamy fruit provides a smooth texture to any smoothie and fills your body with heart-healthy fats. For more on the health benefits of avocado, check out my Avocado Egg Sandwich recipe.

Frozen fruit:

If you’re looking to use frozen blueberries for this smoothie there is no issue. It would take the place of the ice cubes being used.

Frequently asked questions:

Do oats need to be cooked first in a smoothie?

You do not have to cook the oats first. They can be blended dry.

Where do you find whole fat yogurt?

Whole fat yogurt is in the yogurt aisle – just make sure it doesn’t say low fat, fat-free, or reduced-fat. It usually says “whole milk plain”.

How long does fresh smoothies stay fresh for?

Fresh smoothies will keep up to 48 hours in the refrigerator.

  1. I fixed this blueberry avocado smoothie for my 9 month old grandson today. It was a huge hit! Can you tell me where I can find the adorable glass drinking jars and lids in the picture?

  2. What’s the earliest you can let them drink this? I believe all the stuff that’s listed they can have at 6-9 months, but I wasn’t sure about the flax seed.

  3. I’m going to make this for my 8 month old, I’m pretty excited I think she’ll love it! I’m going to sub breastmilk for the water and yogurt. And give it to her in her sippy cup!

  4. This is exactly what I was looking for to try with my Autistic son. He’s 5 years old, but he has trouble with texture. So eating textured food is not his thing. He does however like smoothies. I’ve been looking for something like this I can make myself instead of being stuck with just Pediasure. I’ve got the few ingredients I need on my shopping list already! Thanks so much for this!

  5. Sounds so healthy! Can wait to try it for my toddler son. Where did you get those mason jars? They are so, so pretty!

  6. I make this smoothie every 2 weeks, my 11 month old, 5 year old can’t get enough..I double the recipe and freeze the leftover is ice pops so they have “healthy” ice cream…love it..sometimes I sub the yogurt with whole milk kefir and omit the water

  7. Can I ask how what do you put the smoothie in for your 10 month old to drink? My guy is almost 11 months and he can drink from a cup but I have to hold it. He wasn’t really figured out a straw yet, a d I imagine this is too thick for a sippy cup. Suggestions?

  8. This sounds delicious :) My 14 month old has a smoothie nearly everyday & avocado makes it the perfect texture. However, I have to sit there & hold her cup the whole time because she drinks it from a regular straw. None of her sippy cups work with it. (and I don’t make them terribly thick) Would you mind telling me what cups you use?

  9. I found the same with my toddler. I add avocado too, flax seeds, spinach, baobab powder and sometimes quinoa powder, which I grind from uncooked quinoa. It’s a great way of getting good stuff in them.

    1. Can’t wait to make this for my twin 15 month old boys! And one for myself too! Where do you find whole fat yogurt? Thanks!

      1. Let me know what they think!! Whole fat yogurt is in the yogurt aisle – just make sure it doesn’t say low fat, fat free or reduced fat. It usually says “whole milk plain.” Good luck!!

  10. Thanks for the great idea! My baby is 17 and I still have to sneak fruits and veg into his meals…he’s strictly meat and potatoes. He recently agreed to try smoothies so I’m excited to add another healthy ingredient!
