If you’re looking for a fun-but-healthy kitchen activity to do with kids on Valentines Day this year, here are two fun and easy ideas. They make excellent after-school snacks or treats to eat yourself or share!
Energy Ball Bears
Mix up your favorite energy ball recipe, and add eyes with mini chocolate chips, almond ears, and a nose made of a cinnamon candy or heart-shaped sprinkle.
Valentines Apple Nachos
This recipe is inspired by a recipe I saw by the Medical Medium.
Cut off the sides of an apple and cut heart shapes out of it, to add a Valentines flair.
A very easy all-fruit treat that is very fun to make and eat!
- 8 medjool dates (or 12 deglet noor dates)
- 1/2 cup canned coconut milk (or other milk of choice)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 4 apples
- 2 tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
- shredded coconut
- chopped nuts
- dried cranberries
- mini chocolate chips
Blend all the carmel sauce ingredients together until very smooth.
Arrange apples slices on a plate. Drizzle carmel sauce and then peanut or almond butter over the apples. Sprinkle with desired toppings--coconut, chopped nuts, chocolate chips, etc.
If dates are hard, soak in hot water for 10 minutes first. Drain before blending.
