I make banana soft serves at home A LOT. So easy. It’s just frozen banana (sliced and peeled), then whipped down in a food processor. This dessert is so versatile and the internet is exploding with different yummy variations you’d be crazy to not give it a go if you haven’t already. My go to recipe is usually some sort of peanut butter and chocolate soft serve but I do make berry concoctions for the kids quite frequently. Here is this recipe from a while back, but seriously, the sky is the limit when you start with your basic frozen bananas.
So….I headed back to first grade. If you remember, I have been there three times now. We have done pumpkin smoothies and chocolate pudding and green smoothies so far. This last treat Landon has been asking for all year. We did this in kindergarten as well and it was a big hit.
So here is what we do and why the kids like it. We start with our banana soft serve as our base and the kids get to pile it with healthy toppings. A healthy sundae bar if you will. Healthy topping choices were strawberries, blueberries, crushed peanuts and even crushed whole grain pretzels. woot woot! To make things even more tasty the kids made a raw chocolate sauce to drizzle over the top. So naturally Landon would be excited for this snack in first grade as well.
As usual, we had a lesson on one nutrient that was in our snack.
Then we got to work.
Kids chose their toppings…
This year was no different. Kids wanted seconds.
