Fruit whip - with a little hidden goodness
A quick breakfast, snack or treat, these Fruit Whips are a delicious and super nourishing way to include avocado in your diet.
- 1 avocado/s (medium-large) flesh
- 1 banana/s
- 100 g frozen raspberries (1 cup) or blueberries or mixed berries
- 7 tbsp full-fat natural yoghurt
- 1 tbsp rice malt syrup or honey -optional
- 1 tsp vanilla -extract, paste or powder
Throw it all in a blender or processor and blend until smooth and creamy (thermomix 30 seconds, speed 6)
Serve it in a cup with a spoon. You can add a little milk, coconut or almond milk if it is too thick or to turn this into a smoothie.
Trust me, they will NEVER know!
I often add 180 Nutrition Superfoods to this, especially when my kids have sport.
Add some green
A few baby spinach leaves will increase the nutrition (but may make the colour a little unappealing). Your call.
Dairy-free and vegan
Replace the yogurt with coconut yogurt or coconut cream.
Freeze it into popsicle moulds for a super healthy frozen treat. Frozen yogurt cups This is great for the the lunch box. Freeze in little cups and by morning tea time it will be soft enough to eat. Remember to pack a spoon.
Fill a re-usable food pouch
Also a great food pouch filler (no spoon required).
I generally serve this with something like cheese and tomato on toast as my kids enjoy a big breakfast.
