Sometimes I wonder if other people get as much pleasure as I do from seeing their children eat healthy food. There is just something so reassuring about it, knowing that vitamins and nutrients are being flooded through their growing bodies.
Luckily, on these hot, summer August days, smoothies are a big hit in my home. My ‘go to’ smoothie for my kids contains almond milk, some frozen or fresh berries, and a bit of raw honey. Berries are high in fiber, potassium, and vitamins A and C. My kids love the taste and I love the nutrition.
Just recently I decided to take a chance by adding one more ingredient to their smoothies, hoping they wouldn’t notice.
There is no denying the fact that my daughter inherited my sweet tooth. Both of us find it extremely challenging to go even one day without putting some type of dessert into our mouths.
And while I would never be so bold as to declare that fruit can take the place of Mallomars, I can say that this apple recipe definitely gets my daughter excited about eating a naturally sweet treat.
This is the perfect snack to prepare when the 7:00 P.M – 8:00 P.M. post dinner “Im hungry!” declaration comes in. It is very simple, easy to make, and is a great recipe to make together with your children.
