Flower Apple PopsWe’re celebrating the start of Spring with a healthy snack activity! 🌺 These flower apple pops are a great way to get your kids excited about the change of season while sparking creativity. With just some apple slices, white chocolate, and assorted fruits, this snack comes together within minutes!
Rainbow Apple RingsWe love eating the rainbow so we decided to put a St. Paddy’s Day spin on our apple slice “donuts”. Topped with Greek yogurt and our rainbow fruit, you can also sub in nut butter or chocolate hummus for the spread. We then added some dye-free candy in the center for our pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Shamrock ShakeA kid-friendly spin on the classic St. Paddy's Day shamrock shake, we use kale + spinach to naturally color our smoothie green. Our version tastes like a banana milkshake and is naturally sweetened by dates!
Banana Spinach MuffinsWe made these blender muffins in honor of St. Patrick’s Day! These chocolate chip banana muffins are always a hit with the kids and their friends (and no one even complains that the beautiful green color comes from SPINACH!!). We love using spinach because it adds such great nutritional value without compromising the sweet flavor of the muffin. Spinach is a such great source of fiber that helps fuel growth of healthy gut bacteria.
Shamrock Chocolate BarkLet’s make Shamrock Chocolate Bark in honor of St. Paddy’s Day! 🍀 All you need is white chocolate with some coconut oil so it spreads smoothly, pretzel twists (we used cauliflower pretzels), and dye-free green sprinkles on top. "Wherever you go, whatever you do, may the luck of the Irish be there with you!"
Pot of Gold Snack BoardReady for an easy St. Paddy’s Day snack board that’s perfect for entertaining or even a fun after school treat? My kids loved helping me assemble this rainbow fruit board with a delicious pot of snack gold at the end. They may have eaten half the fruit and organic corn puffs before they made it on the snack tray, but they were all giggles and happy bellies while doing it.
Chocolate Hamantaschen🔺These triangular stuffed cookies are for the Jewish holiday Purim, and many believe they resemble the 3-cornered hat that the evil Haman wore. ❌Supposedly, taking a bite out of the cookie is in defiance of bowing down to Haman and preventing him from carrying out his evil plan. 🧺 On Purim, we also make baskets each year with the kids, filled with candy and hamantashen cookies. We give the baskets out to our neighbors and friends to ensure that everyone has enough food for the Purim feast held later in the day, and to increase love and friendship.
Apple Ring MasksThe Jewish holiday of Purim, the Festival of Masks, starts next week, and we’re getting holiday ready with a festive take on our apple slice “donuts”. 🎭 The kids had so much fun putting their creativity to the test as they dipped and decorated their apple slice masks with all the dye-free candy we had in our cabinet. Even if you don’t celebrate Purim, save these apple masks down in your bookmarks because they are perfect for Mardi Gras or even just a fun snack activity.
Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter BlondiesWant in on a little secret?? 😏 These protein blondies are made with CHICKPEAS! A favorite of both my 7&4 year olds, these addictive gooey blondies taste DELISH and are also packed with plant-based protein, are grain free, and vegan.
(Avocado) Chocolate PuddingI love my sneaky fruits & veggies, so adding avocado to chocolate pudding is a no-brainer for me! The fun part is that the avocado takes on the flavors it’s mixed with (cacao powder + pure maple syrup), so the kids will never know it’s there! 😏
Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast CookiesThese breakfast cookies are nutritious enough for breakfast, yet taste like dessert! Made with wholesome sprouted oats, potassium-rich bananas, creamy peanut butter that's high in protein, and naturally sweet pure maple syrup, these cookies have easy, clean ingredients and come together in about 20 minutes! Vegan + gluten-free!
Salted Caramel Pretzel CookiesNeed a last-minute treat for Valentine’s Day? We got you covered with these simple vegan + gluten-free XOXO cookies smothered in a salted caramel topping and layered with crunchy pretzels and naturally colored pink white chocolate. I love using egg-less batters with the kids so I don’t have to worry about them (or my husband 🤪) licking the bowl.
