Milkshake Madness: {Kids Cook} Monday Meal

Milkshake Madness!

This week’s Monday Meal continues my current theme of Sweet September in which I’m sharing recipes that are “smart about sugar”. Today I’m sharing 3 recipes for delicious, healthy milkshakes that have no added sugar and taste great. By using nutritious ingredients like milk, coconut oil and frozen fruit you get a sweet treat that’s full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and healthy fats.

Before I share the recipes, here are a couple of reasons I love making milkshakes:

1. You can customize these recipes to your preferences by using ingredients that you and your family like. For example, you can make a vegan milkshake by swapping out cow’s milk for almond or coconut milk. And you can switch up the flavors by using different fruits.

2. Your little foodie can take a lead role in making milkshakes. See the photos below for how my teeny tiny sous chef helped make this sweet treat.

First, we investigated the food processor and reviewed some safety rules i.e.: do not stick your fingers into it!

Next, we measured out the ingredients together and she got to work putting them into the mini food processor.

Then, she wrangled the top onto the mini food processor.

And finally, Eliana pressed the button to blend everything together. Think she likes this part?
