We all know how tricky it can be to keep the kids satisfied and ensure they are consuming healthy nutritious food on a regular basis. Finding a smoothie recipe that is gluten free, dairy free, vegan and refined sugar free is a real challenge that we here at GF Oats accept. Smoothies are a great way to get nutrition into kids and they don’t even know it. They sit back, put a smile on their dial and sip away, not even knowing. But, we mums can all collectively send a virtual (wink) to each other, knowing we have nailed it, momentarily anyways. Here at GF Oats we recommend our Quick Oats when making smoothies as they are already particially broken down, so they blend up quickly when they are in your blender with other ingredients. 

So for this months recipe, we have chosen one based on the Raspberry Smoothie recipe in the Friendship Food book. ( available for purchase on our shop)

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup of GF Oats
  • 1/2 cup rice milk or alternative of choice
  • 2 tsp  GF Oats Raw Honey, maple syrup or rice syrup 
  • 1 tbsp LSA ground linseeds, sunflower seeds and almonds)
  • 1/3 cup of sultanas or dried fruit of choice (optional)

Method:

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

Serve in a child friendly cup with a beautiful paper or bamboo straw. 

Alternatively, if the weather is heating up and you need something to cool the kids down that isn’t full of nasties, pop the smoothie recipe into ice block moulds and put them in the freezer until frozen. Then enjoy or watch the kiddies enjoy, either way we are all Happy Happy!
