How I cheat my kids to eating fruits!

CHEATING YOUR KIDS IS OKAY IF YOU HAVE GOOD INTENTIONS

ahheemmm!

____________________________

Do you have Picky Eaters at home? No not your Husband.

I mean the tiny ones? If you have any?

Ever have those moments when you wish they would eat more fruits and vegetables?

If you are a Mom, I am sure you have those moments!

If you don’t then you are a really LUCKY MOM whose kids eat everything you tell them to.

I have to come up with some pretty crazy ideas to feed my kids fruits and vegetables.

They love fruits in general. But they often waste it.

One bite, two bite, three….. throw it out.

I noticed that my kids love DIPS and ICE CREAM.

Ice cream all the time. Winter blizzard outside? No problem.

Summer? Give it to them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You will be their favorite mom of the century.

SO! Since I am not interested in being the spoiler Mom who feeds my kids Ice cream for life. I thought of making it a little more creative.

PINTEREST is my BEST FRIEND.

NO KIDDING.

EVERY MOM SHOULD HAVE PINTEREST ON THEIR GADGETS

Although the idea came in my head naturally, I still searched Pinterest for ideas.

I found CANDY MELTS to be a better choice than Baker’s Chocolate.

Without further discussion. Let me just tell you how I did it!

__________________________________________

4 ounces candy melts

(I used Chocolate but you can go crazy with the other flavors/colors)

1 tablespoon coconut oil (organic and food grade)

3 large ripe bananas

Garnish: 

Chopped pecans, hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts or pistachios

Shredded unsweetened coconut

oats

Cupcake Sprinkles 

INSTURCTION: 

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, wax paper, or aluminum foil.
  • Cut the bananas into 2 – 3 inch (5 – 7 cm) chunks.
  • Insert a popsicle stick, bamboo skewer, or a chopstick into the pieces of banana.
  • Place on the baking sheet and freeze for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt the Candy melt and oil in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water.
  • Then remove the bananas from the freezer and, taking one piece of banana at a time, dip in the melted chocolate, making sure the banana is completely covered with chocolate. 

If you like, roll or sprinkle over the chocolate coated banana in chopped nuts, toasted coconut, granola, or colored sprinkles.

Once completely frozen, the bananas can be stored in a covered container, for about one week.

To soften the bananas, place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.

    My baby niece might love these, only she has grown a dislike for bananas for some strange reason (I think from all the squished forms she had when she was very tiny!) 😀
    You’re right though, Pinterest is a MUST for anybody who has a baby in their lives!

    My kids love this! I put a little dab of almond butter on the banana before freezing. SO GOOD
