Toddler Constipation Is Stressful For Everyone

Toddlers. What can I say. They inspire the most exciting, fun and magical times. They also bring you face to face with some of the most challenging of times. And when the challenges involve constipation it takes things to a new level, often for the whole family.

It’s stressful, heartbreaking and frustrating. I know because we’ve dealt with constipation with our own little one. She’s uncomfortable. I’m stressed out. And everyone is frustrated and sometimes cranky on top everything. Your toddler can’t fully communicate what’s wrong, and often times they can’t fully place it themselves.

You know the answer. They need to poop, but are struggling for whatever reason. This constipation smoothie is a great way to add hydration, fiber and healthy fats to help ease their poop along.

Constipation Smoothie Ingredients

You will only need a handful of ingredients to make this smoothie. Here’s what you’ll need.

  • Coconut milk (or nut milk of choice)
  • Frozen pineapple
  • Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • Avocado
  • Spinach (or zucchini)
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed (or chia seed)

How To Make A Constipation Smoothie

This recipe is so easy. I do recommend a high powered blender for the smoothest, best results. You just add everything to your blender in the order listed in the recipe card and blend it up.

Our blender has a smoothie button, but if yours doesn’t just start on low and then gradually increase the power to high until your smoothie is smooth and creamy. It will take about 30-60 seconds. Then, serve it up!

How To Serve Smoothies For Kids

This might be as simple as putting it in a cup and letting your child drink it down. Or you might have to be a little more creative. Here are some ideas.

  • Straw cups are great! These ones are also fun because they look like a kid version of what mom and dad might use.
  • Open cups with a straw can be fun if your child is using one (but it also might result in more play with the smoothie than you’re interested in dealing with)
  • Squeeze pouches work well for younger kids
  • In a bowl with a spoon (also might result in more play than you want to deal with, but might be a good way to get an uninterested toddler more involved)

A Natural Approach To Relieving Toddler Constipation

We believe in a natural, real food-based approach to relieving constipation. Here’s why:

  • Most toddler constipation can be helped by focusing on feeding your child nutrient dense, fiber-rich and lubricating foods
  • Your child’s gut health should be a priority for optimal health
  • You shouldn’t have to give your child laxatives to get them to poop!

In our Toddler Constipation course, we give you all the tools and knowledge you need to help ease your child’s constipation and get them going again.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk (or nut milk of choice)

Notes

This smoothie will make 2 servings. The flax and chia seeds will make it thicken up quite a bit as it sits in the fridge if you are saving one serving for later. You will want to shake it up, whisk it or mix it up in the blender again when you go to serve the second serving.
