My kids and I often have a debate at the supermarket about what we should buy. Being kids, of course they are drawn to the brightly coloured packaging of junk foods and at school they see a lot of the other kids eating these exciting looking things. My challenge is to try and replicate some of these foods in a headliner way.
Squeezie yoghurts are a great example of what many kids have for recess at school. Most parents don't have time to read the label and so are often unaware of how much sugar, colours and flavours many of the commercial brands contain. My kids have been asking me for years to please have these for recess. Well at last, I can say yes! I recently purchased some re-usable squeeze pouches, so I can fill them with a healthy alternative that pleases us all.
Creamy Banana Raspberry Squeezie
1 & 1/2 TBS chia seeds
1/2 an over ripe banana
6 organic raspberries (I used frozen)
200ml coconut milk (or milk of your choice)
80ml plain coconut yoghurt (or natural yoghurt of choice)
Place all ingredients into bowl or jug and blend with a stick blender until smooth. Pour into squeezie pouch and seal. (Makes 2 squeezes)
