2 Delicious Ways to Get Avocado Into Your Children

Do you have fussy eaters who turn their nose up at healthy foods?  Well if you’re anything like me you’ll find a way, and this is my way of getting avocado into them – avocados are full of amazing good fats so I make sure it’s part of their diet.

These two desserts are completely delicious and my two boys devour them in seconds and ask for more.  Little do they know…

Strawberry Citrus Ice Cream
strawberry_ice_cream
1 ripe avocado
4 cups frozen organic (if possible!) strawberries (I chop these up before they go in the freezer to make it easier on the food processor)
1/2 cup plain organic yogurt
1/4 cup raw honey
4 drops Wild Orange essential oil*
4 drops Lime essential oil*
*you can purchase these food grade oils here.

Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until all the frozen strawberries have broken down.  Serve immediately. 


Raw Chocolate Moussechoc-mousse

This recipe not only has avocado but it’s rich in magnesium from the cacao too so it’s super healthy!  Our bodies need the correct amount of magnesium in our diets for us to sleep properly, so we need a regular intake of magnesium.  Also, cancer free populations have an extremely high magnesium intake of 2.5 – 3g which is 10 times more than most western countries.  So here we go…

1 avocado
1/2 cup creamy coconut milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 raw cacao powder
2 tbsp raw honey
(add a dollop of hazelnut butter for a Ferrero Roche twist – so good!)

Using a food processor or high-speed blender, combine all ingredients until smooth.  Put in refrigerator to chill before serving.  I love to top them with some fresh raspberries!

Chocolate Quinoa Nests

As a kid did you LOVE those chocolate rice krispie nests as much as I did?  Well these are a healthier version of those and they’re pretty good I have to say!

chocolate quinoa nests

1 ½ cups of popped/puffed quinoa
1/3 cup raw cacao powder
6 tablespoons pure maple syrup
5 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons almond butter

Place the coconut oil, cacao powder, maple syrup and almond butter into a saucepan and gently heat for a few minutes until smooth and melted. While this melts, pour the quinoa pops into a mixing bowl.

Pour the mix over the quinoa pops and stir together until all the quinoa pops have been covered in chocolate.

Scoop the mix into small cupcake holders and place them in the fridge for approx. an hour, then serve and enjoy!  (makes approx. 15-20 depending on the size of your cases.)

Healthy KFC!

Need some dinner inspiration for the kiddies? How about some KFC? ‘Say what!?’ I make this healthy chicken ‘KFC style’ for my boys and they love it!!

healthykfc

So easy… just get some strips of chicken (I use about 300g), put approx. 2-3 cups gluten free cornflakes (you can use normal if you wish) into the food processor until broken up, dip the strips into whisked up egg, then coat them in the ground up cornflakes. Then just shallow fry them in 100% Rice Bran Oil.

I serve them with sweet potato mash and broccoli. The usual response is: “Can we have those again mummy?”

Dinosaur Pasta Sauce

This pasta sauce is a great way to get veggies into children!  When my boys were very young they started turning their noses up at anything green so I started calling it ‘dinosaur sauce’ – it worked!  They’ve been devouring it ever since…

green sauce

Ingredients:

100g pine nuts
200ml extra virgin olive oil
1 big handful basil
2-3 big handfuls of spinach
1 clove of garlic
Juice of 1 lemon
Big pinch of Himalayan pink salt

Instructions:

Throw it all in a food processor or blender until smooth. You should have enough to freeze for another meal or two, it all depends on how saucy you make the pasta!

I serve it with Doves Farms gluten free fusilli pasta – half way through the pasta boiling I like to add about half cup of peas.  Drain the pasta and peas, add it back to the pot with some of the sauce, warm it altogether – serve topped with a little parmesan, delicious!
