Zucchini Nice Cream
Nice cream is all the rage in our house! My kids love it and I love that it’s just fruit. But did you know you can also throw in some veggies?! Frozen zucchini adds a creamy texture with no real taste. YES! We wanted to really make it green and add in spinach for color and mint to make it into mint chocolate chip flavor.

Creating a good relationship with food means enjoying treats along the way. I like to add as much nourishment to treats as possible. It doesn’t mean we can over indulge in them. It just means there is some extra nutrition in the serving we take. Here is a fun brownie recipe that you can make with your kids that includes nutrition from peas, avocado, and hemp hearts! If you want to make them peanut free you could use almond butter or sun butter in place of the peanut butter.
