Recipes from Today’s Healthy Eats Playdate

Hi everyone! I hope you enjoy these recipes! Please let me know if you have any questions!!

Green Smoothie

2 Ripe Banana (Frozen or Fresh)
10 Leaves Organic Spinach
1 Cup Water
Sweetener (I used 1 date and 1 small scoop Stevia in class)
Ice if you want it colder (no more than 4 or 5 cubes)

Blend in Vitamix or regular blender
Your child may be more likely to drink it if it is in their favorite cup OR from your cup with a straw…Might want to try this first
Slowly increase the number of greens as your child develops a taste for it
Change up your greens by using Kale, Beet Tops, Celery, Romaine, etc.
You can also add different fruits! I like to put at least a little banana in so that it is creamy.

Blueberry Truffles

1 cup raw walnuts
¼ cup organic blueberries (fresh or frozen)
3 dates (soaked for 15 minutes and pits removed)
1 Tb raw cacao powder

Blend in Food Processor
Roll into balls and serve!
Add Ground Flax Seed for additional fiber and Omega 3’s!!

Apple Cookies

2 organic apples (cored and cut into 1 inch chunks)
1 1/2 cup raw almonds (or walnuts, brazil nuts, etc)
3 Dates (soaked for 15 min and pitted)
5 Apricots
¼ cup Ground Flax Seed

Grind almonds until powder in food processor
Add flax, dates and apricots and grind again
Add apples one at a time until the mixture is of a consistency with which you can roll into balls (too many apples will make the mixture too gooey)
Roll in balls; if desired bake in oven on 200 for about 20 minutes (this will make them less sticky) or in Dehydrator on 110 for 5 hours

Raw Ice Cream

3 Frozen Ripe Bananas
1 Date or another sweetner (optional, I did not add any in class)
That’s It!
Optional Ingredients:
Frozen Strawberries
Frozen Blueberries
ANY Frozen Fruit
1 Tb Raw Cacao Powder
AND during class I snuck a handful of spinach in there and it didn’t seem that the babies noticed!
