Kids chocolate protein pops – the perfect after school treat. Enjoy them on their own as a healthy snack. Or pimp them up by dipping in homemade chocolate & your choice of sprinkles. Creamy & sweet from coconut milk, ripe bananas & dates I’m sure you will enjoy them as much as we did. They are the perfect snack to have stashed in the freezer during those long dog days of summer! This combination would also make a great thick shake, just use frozen bananas instead.
It’s the addition of The Super Elixir Kids Nourishing Protein that I love. This Australian made organic brown rice & pea protein got a big thumbs up from my boys because of it’s great chocolate flavour. I love it just as much as them, but for different reasons. A few secret ingredients that caught my eye were probiotics, flaxseed, carrot, pomegranate, broccoli, beetroot, apple & pumpkin. So as a result you will probably see more kid-friendly snacks using this kid-approved plant protein. If you have any suggestions please let me know.
Also, we survived our first week back at school. Chocolate helps! All my worries about my oldest traveling to and from school finally squashed. He is now an expert bus catcher (well almost). Proving that he was indeed ready for greater responsibility and as a result is thriving with his newfound independence. When my boys were younger I was never a fan of the saying “they grow up so fast”. As a mum of three small boys it didn’t feel fast at all, but maybe at some point, it speeds up. Maybe that’s the point people are referring to? that moment that makes you want to hit pause. For me that moment is now!
