I will admit that I do struggle with preparing easy and healthy after school snacks. My kids become bored and tired of the same old food, as all kids do. Cut apple or melon (my kids are super fussy when it comes to fruit!), toast, muffins, rice crackers and hummus, cheese and crackers or banana smoothies, this is our regular afternoon tea snacks and sometimes the kids just want something a bit different. I would also prefer them to eat more fruit!
Munch Cupboard sent us a sample of their ice pops to test out and I thought they would b be perfect to try for a quick and healthy snack after school. Using a recipe in their cookbook, we made some delicious yoghurt pops!
We mixed 1 cup of vanilla yoghurt, a punnet of fresh strawberries and 1 tsp orange juice together in a blender and then poured them into the reusable ice pops. I wasn’t sure whether to pour it to the very top and I would recommend to give about 2cm before the top to allow for expansion and also for the lid to go firmly on. We froze ours overnight however as long as they have 6 hours freeze time, they will be ready for eating!
And so the verdict…
