Fix Me A Snack

A blog created by a mom who got sick of feeding her kids crackers and ice cream

One of my newest measures of snack recipe success is how messed up my four year-old daughter’s face gets when she eats. A good snack should leave behind some tell-tale signs of having been consumed with gusto.

Here we have Exhibit A which was the aftermath of our latest Sunshine Smoothie. Her face isn’t actually that messy. But the sprinkles on her chin make it a winner, non? The sprinkles were entirely her idea, by the way.

Sunshine Smoothie Recipe

1 fresh mango, peeled, pitted, and chopped
1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
1 medium ripe banana, peeled
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup orange juice

Place all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Serve.

Yield: 3 cups
Prep-time: 5 minutes

    Love little Sprinkle Face!

  2. I promised my kids a smoothie when they get home from school today and this looks like JUST the thing. I love the addition of sprinkles, and they look even better on your sweet baby’s chin than they do in the drink! :)

  3. Let me know what your kids think if you ever get around to making this one Rivki. My husband says it’s “too sweet”.

  4. These sound so good! And the sprinkles are a cute, kid-enticing touch.
