With school holidays almost at an end, the days of kids getting home from school wanting to snack on chips and ice cream are inevitable. However, there are lots of great ways to feed hungry little mouths with healthy snacks, and we wanted to share one of our favourites from kidspot.com.au – Fruit Slushies!
Best made on a hot afternoon, fruit slushies will help the kids chill out, as well as provide a healthy intake of fruit.
What you’ll need:
- 1 cup of frozen fruit (mango, pineapple, banana, watermelon, rockmelon, berries or any frozen fruit from the freezer)
- 1 cup of juice (apple, orange or pineapple)
- A Blender
- A large cup, a spoon and a straw
Variations & ideas:
- Add ice for extra slush
- Serve in small plastic cups with small plastic spoons to save on washing up
- Increase volumes to make more portions
- Experiment with flavours to keep the kids interested
How to make them:
- Place frozen fruit into blender and pour in 1/2 of the juice
- Blend until smooth
- Add the rest of the juice as needed
- Add ice for extra slushiness
