Your kid would only provide sweets like cake, ice cream, and candy if he or she were in control of your regular meals. You wouldn’t allow anything like that happen, would you? If they’re craving something sweet, offer them something a little more nutritious instead. And you may relax knowing they are beneficial to your health.
Any of these delicious and nutritious sweets for kids are sure to earn you extra smooches from your little one.
Brownies with Avocado: Delicious!
1/2 of an avocado
1/4 cup shredded coconut
Half a cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, preferably dutch-processed
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 cup apple sauce, unsweetened
Baking soda, one teaspoon
Vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon
1/25 of a teaspoon of salt
Blend or process the avocado with the apple sauce, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until smooth. Mix well until there are no clumps left and all ingredients are evenly distributed. Put in a big bowl and beat in several eggs. To a large mixing bowl, sift the coconut milk, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
Bake for 20-25 minutes in a preheated oven (350F) after pouring the batter into a buttered 8×8-inch baking dish. Wait 20 minutes at least before handling. Make squares and dig in!
Brownies have a two-day shelf life at room temperature if stored in an airtight container. Keep perishables in the fridge for maximum freshness.
Pineapple with Honey and Lime, Grilled
4 tablespoons of shredded coconut, sweetened to taste
2 teaspoons sugar (may be maple syrup or honey)
Lime Juice, One Tablespoon
Sorbet or ice cream made with coconut
Carve the pineapple into 34-inch thick slices. That’s plenty for around 8 servings. The skin is optional and may be left on or removed. Mix the syrup and lime juice together in a bowl and then use a pastry brush to coat both sides of each pineapple slice. Grill the pineapples for approximately three minutes each side on an oiled grill pan over medium heat, or until grill marks emerge. Put dishes on the table and take the food off the heat. Mango product or sorbet would be delicious on pineapples covered with crushed coconut. Quickly dish it up.
