I babysit 2 of my granddaughters almost everyday. Mhairi, is only 6 months old and still on breast milk. The older one, Eilidh, is 3 1/2 years old going on 40. Most of the time she is a pretty good eater, but there are times when she really doesn’t want her vegetables.
So today I have a recipe for a fruit dip that will have your kids asking for more fruit. And it’s easy enough for them to help you make it.
Honey Nut Fruit Dip
4 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (be sure to check that it’s gluten free)
2 tablespoons dry milk powder
2 teaspoons honey
4 tablespoons boiling water
Place the peanut butter into a small bowl. Sprinkle with the milk powder. Add the honey and stir until all te ingredients are well blended together. Carefully add the boiling water and stir until smooth.
Makes 1 Cup
This is a great dip to show your children how to make a nutritious after school snack. Use cut up apples, oranges or banana slices for dipping. Even grapes taste great when dipped into this sweet concoction. It can also be spread on Rice Cakes (Quaker brand are now gluten free) or gluten free crackers.
If you are making this without the kids helping or being around, add some finely shreaded carrots to help get more of their daily vegetable requirement. They’ll never know it’s in there.
Prep Time: about 10 minutes
