I have recently had the pleasure of trying out Two Green Rascals kids smoothies. To say that my son Oliver has loved them would be an understatement. He is obsessed. They are phenomenally easy and absolutely delish.
Lisa, The owner and creator of Two Green Rascals has written a little bit about herself and why her idea was born.
“3:00 AM My (almost) 3-year-old toddler jumps out of her bed and into ours.
3:15 AM After a series of well targeted blows to the stomach from my ninja-kicking baby girl, I retreat to her bed.
5:05 AM My Miss 4-year-old has to go to bathroom. Again.
6:15 AM Miss (almost) 3 grows weary of sleeping next to my husband and jumps back into her small bed (with me).
7:00 AM My husband ‘wakes me up’ with hot coffee and a kiss… little does he know I have a 4hr head start on him.
The rest of the morning is a mad rush of getting the girls fed, dressed, lunches packed, kitchen tidied and a couple glorious minutes to get myself dressed (shower optional). Breakfast is frankly non-existent. I soon realised I had to do something healthy (and fast) for me or i would start to wither away.
I started pre-packing fresh ingredients for smoothies and freezing them the night before so I could toss them into a blender, drink and go. During one particular morning’s mayhem I had an epiphany… I realised that I wasn’t the first to live in crazy town, and I surely wouldn’t be the last. Other mums could use my help. And that’s when my idea for Two Green Rascals smoothies was born.
In no time I found out I could kill two proverbial birds with one delicious stone fruit (so to speak). Like 90% of kids, mine weren’t delving into fruits and veggies with the gusto I had hoped for. So I blended up some smoothies for them, poured them into funky milk jars and threw a couple of cool striped straws into it. Seconds later they were drinking kale and spinach and banana and berries and everything else that I could have ever wished for. And they were none the wiser. Lisa.”
They have 6 exciting flavours designed to tantalise little taste buds while filling their bodies with health. My son is only 2 1/2 and we have both happily shared the mix and depending on how much liquid you add, you could definitely share it with a sibling. If that sibling is young. Not if their teenager brother wants some too, he wants a whole one! The packaging is cute and recyclable. I am actually going to use ours to grow some plants! They last 3-6 months if frozen correctly so you can stock up and have them ready to go when your little one wants them. Breakfast, afternoon tea, on the run.

Caroline Trickey is an accredited practicing nutritionist and dietitian, and consultant for Two Green Rascals. “Most busy Mums don’t have time to make a proper brekkie every morning. They’re more likely to ingest something ‘beige’, lacking important antioxidants that are associated with colour in foods. Two Green Rascals’ smoothies are beautiful in colour and taste, and loaded with essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, proteins and fibre.” says Caroline.
