Three After School Drinks using Kambrook Blitz2Go

Three After School Drinks using Kambrook Blitz2Go

Now that the kiddos are back to school we have all been able to get ourselves into a routine. Breakfast gets eaten, lunch boxes get packed, dinner is thought about, but what up the time between school pick up and dinner. You know that time where they want to eat everything in the fridge but then not eat dinner!

I have put together three drinks to keep them happy until dinner time. Serve them with a homemade snack and you will have happy little tummies (and your fridge supplies stay in tack for another day).

I am using the Kambrook Blitz2Go to make these drinks quick and easily. While I have poured them into a glass for the purpose of taking a photo, the drinks are made in the same bottle that you drink out of saving on time and washing up.

Simply replace the blade end with a lid and your good to go. Make them before you pick the children and up and take them with you (with piece of mind they won’t spill) or place them in the fridge until you get home. Too easy!

Orange Boost


This one is perfect for a hot afternoon when the little ones may be a little dehydrated and need a boost to get them through the afternoon. Click here for the recipe.

Watermelon Hydrator


The perfect drink for the lead up to Winter to get them a boost of Vitamin C. The frozen banana makes it thick and the addition of yoghurt brings it altogether. Click here for the recipe.

Orange Boost


This is a great variation on your traditional chocolate smoothie. Adding peanut butter, frozen banana and quick oats thickens it up (to keep them full) and adds extra goodness. Click here for the recipe.

    I love any citrus combo, especially if it has ginger in it.

  2. Katrina February 16, 2015 at 8:47 am #

    I love to use a shot of espresso, a frozen banana, chia seed and almonds

  3. Penelope Maxwell February 16, 2015 at 9:30 am #

    I love this idea especially in summer when food isn’t what the kiddies want. We love watermelon and berry combos in our house! But will be trying out a few of the ones you posted!

  4. Annemarie February 16, 2015 at 9:48 am #

    Mango, banana, Greek yoghurt and chia seeds. Yum!!

  8. Christine Speight February 16, 2015 at 11:58 am #

    I love anything with watermelon and passionfruit in it as it has a tangy refreshing bite to it

  9. Belinda February 16, 2015 at 11:59 am #

    I love my version of piña-colada. Coconut milk, baby spinach and pineapple. Yum, yum!

  10. Catherine Grant February 16, 2015 at 12:01 pm #

    I would love to win one of these Kambrook Blitz2Go blenders. What a great way to increase fresh fruit and vegetables in our diets

  11. Adele Smith February 16, 2015 at 12:01 pm #

    I have to say the combination of Rockmelon, Apple, Nectarine with yoghurt and ice cubes really does hit the spot! Delicious!!!!

    Working in animal rescue during the very hot Melbourne summers, I need to ensure I am energized and healthy and able to rescue wildlife no matter how hot the day becomes. Abundant with health benefits, it not only tastes great, but provides me with the required energy I need!
    My first creation with the Kambrook Blitz2Go would be the Summer Energy Green Smoothie; with 1 ½ cups Filtered Water, 1 cup spinach, ½ cup cucumber, 2 celery stalks, 1 small bunch parsley, 2 apples (cored), ½ inch ginger, Juice 1 lime, 1 ½ cups Ice; placing all the ingredients in order in the blender and blending until smooth.
    This smoothie is packed with tons of nutrition powerhouses. Besides providing good levels of vitamins A and K, Parsley also has several unusual, helpful components: volatile oils which can inhibit tumor formation, especially in the lungs; and flavonoids, which prevent cell damage associated with various diseases, including asthma, atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease, and macular degeneration. Made with filtered water, whole vegetables and fruit, and ingredients which are safe for those who are lactose intolerant, this smoothie is a healthier and more nutritious alternative to pressed or squeezed juices, and will provide your body with the required energy to keep you going all Summer long! 🙂

    Wow the blitz to go looks unreal! Our family’s favourite combo is sunny Queensland pineapples, juicy orange, sprigs of mint and passionate passionfruit and lots of ice for those hot summery days! we’d have so much fun creating new and exciting combos each day! WOW!!!

  14. Kylie Embury February 16, 2015 at 12:07 pm #

    We go bananas for banana oat berry here! My teen daughter had been skipping breakfast until we got a Blitz 2 Go. Now she has this most mornings:

    1/2 a banana
    a good ‘dollop’ of strawberry yoghurt
    a handful of mixed berries
    a handful of oats and BLITZ!

    Tasty, filling and nutritious, and my teen son and 3 year old son also love it!

    I’ve been trying to convince Mum to get a Blitz2Go and would LOVE to win one for her!

  25. jaynegee February 16, 2015 at 1:30 pm #

    I love smoothies! My favourite is banana, strawberry, yoghurt, protein powder and coconut oil, yummo:)

  26. Gemma Westacott Blair February 16, 2015 at 1:34 pm #

    We’re crazy for smoothies in our house – the kids usually have one after school but the blender broke the other day after 10 years of hard labour! Lol. A Blitz2Go looks like an awesome replacement option!

    Our fave flavour is banana, mango and berries, whizzed up with some juice, milk and a little yoghurt or ice cream. I’ve recently also tried adding a dash of Verjuice (or lemon juice) to add a little zing and it tastes delicious!

  27. Angela M February 16, 2015 at 1:39 pm #

    Almond and coconut milk, frozen mango, natural yogurt, flax meal and chia seeds.

  28. Ingrid February 16, 2015 at 1:44 pm #

    My favourite drink combo is watermelon, apple & ginger 🙂 I am also partial to a berry smoothie with vanilla yoghurt, cinnamon, skim milk & what ever berries are available. Yum!

  29. Judith Ann February 16, 2015 at 1:54 pm #

    The ‘FUNKY MONKEY SMOOTHIE’ sounds Delish! It would be a perfect start to any morning! 🙂

  30. kim February 16, 2015 at 2:01 pm #

    My favourite smoothie combination is: spinach, cucumber, celery, grapes, chia seeds & coconut water 🙂

  31. kim February 16, 2015 at 2:03 pm #

  32. michelleann February 16, 2015 at 3:02 pm #

    All the fruits that end in ‘berry’ are my fave combo, they all taste ‘berry, berry’ nice together. What a great little machine this is.

  33. Belinda Mouk February 16, 2015 at 4:00 pm #

    I love bananas, almond milk and a sprinkle of cocoa powder with ice.

  36. Lisa J February 16, 2015 at 6:27 pm #

    Any smoothie with berries is a winner for me. Apple juice, mixed berries, plain yogurt and a touch of lime is my favourite. I generally use frozen berries (they add chill without compromising flavour). And how good is it slurping a purple or pink drink!

  37. Amy February 16, 2015 at 7:55 pm #

    Looks absoloutely Delish. If I should be so lucky to win, the watermelon drink would be first on my list. Such a clever after school snack idea. 🙂

  38. Sue February 16, 2015 at 7:56 pm #

    I love mango and berries in the summer with just a hint of chilli. Mmmmm…..yum.

  39. Taleen February 16, 2015 at 8:04 pm #

    My kids love a good old banana smoothie, I would love a Kambrook Blitz2go to make them instead of my slow old bulky blender!
