When you are transitioning your family to a wholefoods diet, or when an allergy or intolerance has just been diagnosed, it can be very hard! As a parent you may feel torn between keeping your child well and ensuring they feel included. You may worry about ‘depriving’ them and about what others think of your approach. There is no doubt that going against the norm can be difficult. It is great to have a few recipes up your sleeve that look and sound like ‘typical’ children’s treats but do not have any adverse effects. Our chocolate thick shake is one such recipe. However, growing up I was more of a strawberry milk girl and that is how this recipe came to be.
My kids love this. I hope yours do too.
Wholefood Simply Strawberry Milk
1 cup of sweet, ripe, delicious strawberries
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Blend and enjoy!
You can also make this recipe into icy poles.
*I use a frozen banana for the thick shakes and a fresh banana for the icy poles
