» Veggie Pops for Kids » Goddess of the Garden

We usually make them once or twice a day at least and I load them full of healthy, leafy greens and veggies. So even if my kids don’t want to eat veggies with dinner I do not worry because they already have two to three servings in their bodies already thanks to green smoothies. With summer around the corner it is even easier to accomplish this with delicious warm weather treats. Our green smoothies become green Popsicles in just a few hours! How many other parents would LOVE to get their kids to eat 3-4 servings of leafy greens a day?

The prinicple is the same, just mix leafy greens and veggies with fruit in a blender and pour the mixture into popsicle molds. Because so many plastics have nasty ingredients that can leach, I also make sure to use BPA Free Popsicle molds. Here is an easy green Popsicle recipe that my kids love.

Patrick’s Day Rainbow Slice and Bake Cookie Cookies, Dessert, Holiday Recipes, Kid Friendly Recipes | 82 comments If I had to pick a recipe that I’ve made so far this year that was most popular with the kids I would have to say it was these Rainbow Slice and Bake Cookies that I tested out for St. Patrick’s Day. And not just because my kids love cookies, but because they thought that this was the coolest looking cookie recipe I have ever baked for them. Because, according to legend, the leprechaun’s pot of gold is hidden at the end of a rainbow I thought it would be fun to come up with a cute treat for the kids to eat on St. I didn’t make the entire batch at once and froze half of the dough for later because we didn’t need that many cookies at once.

Yesterday — homemade gummi bears! All we needed was 1 -3 oz box of flavored gelatin and 2 – 1/4 oz packages of unflavored gelatin, water and candy molds. (we used two candy molds) Pudding Cups. Wicked Good Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Cups.

Pudding Cups

They’re from the book, Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey Treats for Kids by Jill O’Connor and just as good as their name states. Jill sent me and my niece a copy of her book as a little thank you for a post I did inspired by her Cheesecake Pops. We had a hard time deciding which recipe to try first, but we kept coming back to these pudding cups.

They were really fun to make and even more fun to eat. You’ll see what I mean in a minute. From separating the egg yolks, to the measuring and mixing. She cooked the pudding. And mixed in the peanut butter… (thank you, Jill) … and the extra chocolate chips … Oh my! Let the pudding chill for at least four hours before eating. Here’s a link to the Pudding Recipe so you can print it out. Now, here’s the best part. It involves balloons to make bowls. Okay, I did help a little bit here. After you blow up the balloons, wash them off and let them dry. Okay, here’s what you do. And repeat. Repeat. It’s as easy as one… Rainbow cupcakes and rainbow cupcake recipe make rainbow cupcakes.

What better way to create some rainbow magic than with something sweet … Double Rainbow Cupcakes! These delicious cupcakes not only have fun chocolate rainbow garnishes on top, your friends and family will be surprised to find a rainbow of colors inside, too! My kids loved these cupcakes so much that we made 72 of them to take to school and share. They were a huge hit and definitely something we’ll be making often. My favorite part is that the kids get to help mix, mash and drizzle the colored batter.
