NoCookWeek #1 Frozen Berries, Kids & Sugar

It has really been too hot around here to cook, bake or simply think about anything but water, smoothies, salads and even more water. Summer has laid its usual traps for my kids: they crave for limonade, fruit juice and icecream…

Don’t you think it is sometines tricky to please them, feed them and avoid useless sugars?

I never add sugar to their morning smoothies because smoothies are already prepared with the natural sugar contained in fruits.

Now I wish to learn how to prepare scrumptious home-made icecream with reduced sugar.

For a cold and refreshing dessert on Wednesday, I simply blended a few handfuls of frozen berries with almond milk, popy seeds and a pinch of coconut sugar.

What are your tricks to replace sugar in your children’s drinks and meals?

The Next-Morning Smoothie

Yesterday morning, I prepared a smoothie for my children & I and kept a full glass to make today’s pudding. A nice and fruity way to save some cash on family’s breakfasts thanks to chia seeds.

Chia seeds are real game changers. Full of nutrients, proteins and fibers, they share their fair amount of Omega-3 fatty acids with us in every meal. It is a mucilaginous seed once plunged into water, juice or plant-based milk. Thanks to that, you can make chia pudding with almost every juice.

This one was made with yesterday’s smoothie which contained:

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 carrot
  • 4 oranges
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 mug of quinoa milk (a nice try as I thought it was full of proteins and nutrients but I’ve read this article and I am seriously thinking of making my own dairy-free milk)
  • 1/3 vanilla pod
  • 2 kiwis
  • 1 apple
  • 20cl of coconut water (only because I had some left in the fridge)
  • 1 mango

I blended all the ingredients and saved some in a jar for today. All I added was a handful of chia seeds. I covered it and put it in the fridge. It created a gel most people call a chia pudding. I served a few spoons of it and some home-made granola.

Hope you’ll enjoy your breakfast too!

Have a nice day!
