Holidays are great opportunities to encourage our kids to join us in the kitchen to prepare festive foods and also take the lead on making their own recipes.
I am so proud of my daughter, Ruby. She created a smoothie bowl for the Fourth of July! She figured out a plan of the ingredients she was going to need, determined amounts for each ingredient, wrote out the recipe, and with our supervision, used the blender to create this healthy, delicious, and festive treat for the 4th! She even made the video above and edited it herself.
It can be customized to fit with various diets. You can change the milk to whatever works best for your dietary and nutritional needs. The fruits can also be varied. Just make sure they are frozen to give you that ice cream-like texture so that the red, white, and blue toppings stay on top!
No matter what your plans on July Fourth, eating healthy can be fun and in this case even patriotic!
We hope you and your children will enjoy making this healthy, festive treat!
Happy Fourth of July from the Nourishing Hope team!
