My girls are big fans of anything chocolatey. I guess they got it from their *ehem* parents.
Yes, too much chocolatey stuff ain’t good, but I found a great way to make it healthy for my girls. It’s actually my favourite way to get my girls to eat their greens!
Behold, my girls’ favourite healthy chocolate smoothie!
This smoothie is packed with protein, vitamins and fiber which is great for growing kids. Best part is, they don’t even know there’s veggie inside! Baby spinach is totally flavourless and all they can taste is the yummy chocolate smoothie.
Here’s what you need to make this Healthy Chocolate Smoothie:
1 cup MARIGOLD UHT Full Cream Milk
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1-2 tbsp pure honey or pure maple syrup
1/4 cup oats
1 medium ripe banana (frozen banana is even better)
1/2 cup baby spinach
Place everything into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve!
This smoothie is really delicious and nutritious. The MARIGOLD UHT milk really adds creaminess to it. It’s also rich in calcium, protein and their unique formulation which contains Vitamin D, helps with your child’s growth and health. My girls don’t like to drink plain milk on its own, so making smoothie is one of the ways to add milk in their diet, besides with cereal.
MARIGOLD UHT milk comes in 4 milk choices – full cream, low fat, chocolate and strawberry. Of course my girls love the chocolate ones!
