I don’t get why healthy food has this bad rep for being boring? Nothing excites me more than seeing the beautiful colours of berries, spinach or butternut at a market lines up in their different boxes and of course those colours transfer into beautiful food that ends up on our plates.
I created these milkshakes by blending together healthy ingredients, but instead of delivering them in the standard nutribullet container I simply popped them into there gorgeous little glass jars, topped with whipped coconut cream and a sprinkle of dried rose petals, so not only is it a healthy treat but also one that is totally drool worthy.
We have to get more inventive with creating treats for our family and especially children. How are we ever going to win the fight against sugar and the sugar giants if we don’t fight back, and use fire with fire?! By making beautiful and delicious food we can encourage our children want to have a taste and feel like they are having something fun.
My blogger friend Georgina from Greens Of The Stoneage came up with the brilliant recipe for a health version of a Starbucks Unicorn Frappuchino which is totally inspired because not only is it loaded with nutritional goodness, but it looks exactly like the real thing!!
So, dollop on some whipped cream, sprinkle with rose petals or drizzle melted dark chocolate all over, but just go crazy and make a smoothie or milkshake that is memorable!
