Need breakfast on the run? This shake will provide ample energy when time is short.

VERY BERRY SHAKE

SERVES 1

125 g (412 oz/1 cup) fresh or frozen mixed berries
1/2 banana, peeled and frozen
250 ml (9 fl oz/1 cup) almond milk
4 ice cubes

Whizz all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.


This is a great snack to let the kids make on their own – with parental supervision.

CUCUMBER SAILING BOATS

SERVES 2

2 small Lebanese (short) cucumbers
260 g (914 oz/1 cup) plain full-fat yoghurt
6 drops liquid stevia or 2 teaspoons your sweetener of choice
pinch of Celtic sea salt
1 tablespoon chopped dill
1 red capsicum (pepper), seeded
toothpicks, for decorating

Cut the cucumbers in half lengthways and scoop out the seeds.

Combine the yoghurt, stevia, salt and dill in a bowl. Spoon into the hollowed-out cucumbers.

Cut triangles for sails out of the capsicum. Skewer each sail with a toothpick and stick the other end in the cucumber.

HEALTH TIP
Cucumbers are mostly water, so they’re a great way to keep the body hydrated. They’re also a good source of B vitamins, so they’ll give your child a little energy boost.



No kid can resist a frozen treat! Make your own and you'll know they're healthy.

CHOCOLATE POPSICLES

MAKES 4

2 bananas
65 g (214 oz/14 cup) nut butter
60 ml (2 fl oz/14 cup) additive-free coconut milk or coconut water
2 tablespoons cacao powder
1 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract
14 teaspoon stevia powder or your sweetener of choice
4 iceblock (popsicle/ice lolly) moulds and sticks
