Berry Bliss Smoothie – from Magic in Our Kitchen

510

One of my silver linings of this crazy time has been spending a lot more time connecting with people on Instagram. I NEVER THOUGHT THOSE WORDS WOULD LEAVE MY MOUTH, but I really mean it. One of my new internet friends is Sarah McCready, an Australian mother of two with a background in nutrition. She just published her first e-book, “Magic in our Kitchen”. It inspired me to finally roll up my sleeves and try to involve Mattis (our 15 month old) in the kitchen. We’ve now cooked THREE of her recipes together – it not only feeds us, but is also a great, engaging activity. I’m so thrilled to share this book with you with a 10% discount using the code: caroline. (ps this is not an affiliate link – I just want to spread the love!

Sarah’s e-book BEYOND GORGEOUS and so many of you have asked me for kid-friendly recipes recently, so I couldn’t have met her at a better time. It starts off with several pages teaching you best practices for getting your kids involved in the kitchen, and is filled with smoothie recipes, bliss ball recipes, easy breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Each recipe has anywhere from 2 to 8 ingredients and involves very minimal steps to keep your kids attention so they’ll learn to love cooking!

Mattis is obsessed with Luna bars so we tried making the Apricot & Coconut Bliss Balls right away – he LOVES THEM. Such a perfect snack. I keep the balls in the freezer and break them into little bites for him (for now!).

We love the Blueberry and Narna smoothie, but made the Berry Bliss this morning and it was a huge, huge hit. I love that it introduced him to tart flavors (from the lemon) and minty flavors from the fresh mint from our garden. And of course, it used up a handful of the POUNDS of strawberries I insist on purchasing every week at the farmers market, only to panic over how to use them before they go bad.

To get Mattis involved, I set the blender and all of the ingredients in front of him and just encouraged him to throw them in! There was lots of snacking on frozen blueberries involved. I handled the coconut milk because I don’t quite trust him to safely dump liquids… we’ll get there.

I hope you’ll love this cookbook as much as I do!

PS her recipes are written in celsius – literally just google “what is 185C in F” and Google has a built in formula. So easy.
