Can you believe that this is all natural!?! No food colouring at all. Although on the pricey side thanks to the Blue Majik Spirulina. Blue Majik is technically an algae and jam-packed with nutrients. It's very on trend at the moment and if you can manage to get your hands on some, you'll generally be paying around $2.93 per gram!
My fussy 2 year old wont eat many fruits but theres something magic about putting them into icy pole form which has her asking for "more". These are so easy, healthy and delicious.
All you need is icy pole moulds, popsicle sticks, water melon and kiwi fruit.
Blend up the watermelon and add to the icy pole moulds. I froze them for about half an hour before putting the stick in so they were firm enough to hold it upright. Freeze for 2 hours.
Blend kiwi fruit and add to the icy pole moulds. Freeze for a further 2 hours or over night.
A little side note, dont put the sticks in too far. As you can see I have very little stick to hold on to and it makes an already messy activity even messier.
Serve and enjoy. ☺︎
These mini, no bake cheesecakes with blueberry sauce are a real crowd pleaser. They are super easy to make and great for picnics, dinner parties or if asked to 'bring dessert'. They look very impressive and putting them in individual mason jars makes them easy to transport whilst also being a good portion size.
These cookies are super cute. A great idea is to replace the top star with a place setting card. Your guests will be very impressed with these at the christmas table.
I made these and pulled them out of the freezer calling them icypoles. My daughter, who has refused watermelon (and most fruit) for months ate 4. Winning!!!
We have a VERY fussy 2 year old in our house. I made these for her and she was so caught up in the look that she actually tried them. It really was a christmas miracle... 😝
These are super yummy muffins for me and my daughter. It is great to have a snack we can share being dairy free. They do however have almond milk so I wouldn't suggest putting them in lunch boxes in case of friends with allergies.
Stuck on an idea for kids this christmas? Cookies in a jar is a great and cost effective gift that looks adorable whilst also giving the recipient something fun to do during the holiday season.
Do you ever feel like you barely have enough time to eat a healthy lunch? Between playing with my daughter, breast feeding the baby and the endless pile of washing, cleaning and cooking, my new favourite thing to do is soup in a mug. Portable enough that I can take it from room to room and sip away whilst also knowing that everything in it is good for me (and therefore good for my baby). I am unable to eat dairy at the moment because my baby doesn't tolerate it very well, so I am on the hunt for dairy-free goodness and this hits the spot every time.
I have so many issues getting different fruits and vegetables into my 2 year old. She is incredibly fussy (as I've mentioned before), and I am constantly trying new ways to get her to try different textures and flavours. Although she won't eat strawberries, she will eat these strawberry muffins which have real strawberry pieces in them. So it's a little win for me. Plus they are dairy free so I can eat them with her.
