The other day my kids and I decided to try a couple new, yummy-sounding snacks from the Simply Summer Cookbook – the new, free, e-cookbook from Produce for Kids.Â Get it here!
It was a typical day: coming in from school after a long day, lots of homework, piano lessons, soccer practice, doorbell ringing – you know, the typical.Â (Why do we pack our lives so full of busy-ness? I guess that’s another post for another time).Â Anyway, 3 of the 4 of us felt like it was a good day to try something new.Â One of us spent the entire time moping on the couch – but I felt like 3 out of 4 was as good as it was going to get so we went for it!
The 2 participating children chose the Sunny Breakfast Skewers and the Peach Pie Smoothie as their recipes to try.Â Luckily we had almost all the ingredients on hand:
We made the skewers first.Â I must say that the peanut butter-coconut mixture was DELICIOUS all on its own:
Skewering the fruit and waffles was a fun activity, though the metal sticks I had on hand were a little dangerous.Â Wood might have been better.Â Oops:
Next we made the smoothies. Super easy:
Overall the snacks were delicious.Â Preparation took a little more time than I would normally spend, but the results were worth it and we had enough skewers leftover for the next day! Delicious!
