This is a recipe, if it can be called such, for a very simple dessert. My toddlers love it. It is healthy and delicious. It begins with just two ingredients, but there are many ways to boost the nutritional value, which I will give below the recipe.
2-Ingredient Toddler Dessert
1 cup frozen fruit, any combination
1/2-1 cup COLD plain yogurt or whole milk
Blend ingredients until smooth. That’s it! It should be the consistency of a very, very soft ice cream or frozen yogurt; similar to a smoothie but smoother. It can be eaten with a spoon or straw.
Optional additions (stir in after blending):
1-2 tsp sweetener (honey will clump; maple syrup is great); be careful if the fruit used is already sweetened!
1 Tbsp whole flax seed or chia seed
1 Tbsp wheat germ
The picture shows this dessert made with frozen strawberries, vanilla yogurt, maple syrup, flax seed, and wheat germ. The kids love it, and don’t mind the little seeds at all.
