If you have read some of my previous posts, you know that I am eternally searching for new and interesting recipes for my daughter. She has become a bit of a picky eater and as we all do, we get bored with the same foods, over and over. I had a spark of imagination one day, while preparing lunches for the kids. I threw the items together so quickly and chucked it into the fridge so it had a couple of minutes to chill. To make a long story short, she liked it, so try it and perhaps you and your children will do the same.
I made little portion cups and took them to school. You could modify the recipe to make larger portions if you wish. I now make this for my own lunches and it is like yogurt and fruit. So good!
These amounts are flexible. Use your best judgement.
3-4 oz of your favourite non-dairy milk. I like coconut milk.
3-4 tbls of frozen berries. I used blueberries/raspberries for my last recipe
1/2 tbls of your best maple syrup
2 tsp of chia seeds and hemp hulls if you like.
I like to store in small mason type jars and put into the fridge until you want to eat it. It will be good for about 2 days.
I was looking for another recipe for breakfast type things and found this the other day.
Well, I was so excited to try this recipe, I made a batch right away. I really was hoping that I could use some of these lovely ingredients to create something that my children may have another option. With cutting out all grains and sugar, I really thought they would like it. Well as you can imagine, they didn’t even want to really try it:(
I took some to work with me and my co-workers loved it and so did I! I am looking forward to making it again and this time I will relax and not expect the children to even try it again. If you are so inclined, my guess is that you will love it as well. Happy cooking:)
2 cups frozen blueberries
⅔ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used plain almond milk)
5 large dates (soak in hot water beforehand if they are tough)
½ of a frozen banana
½ cup chia seeds
Combine the blueberries, milk, dates and banana in a blender; process until smooth.
Transfer blueberry mixture to a medium bowl and stir in the chia seeds. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to overnight (stir every 5 minutes during first 30 minutes) until thickened.
