So I decided to change up how we usually eat our fruit from fruit in it's natural form or in smoothies (because sometimes smoothies are just too cold to have in the morning when it's 10 degrees outside) to eating our fruit in a cereal bowl with juice and "milk" mostly in hopes that my little guy will eat something good for him!
For what ever reason, call it man genes or something, but my little guy just has an aversion for fruit. I'd say the bananas and blueberries are the ones he likes the best, and maybe that's because they are easy to eat! Simple Little Man
You could also do this later in the day and call it soup. Whatever you want to call it, it will not be as easy as pouring it out of a box or a can, but the things that are really good for us, usually require some effort.
You can use whatever fruit is in season, and you may have to adjust the sweetness depending on the sweetness of your fruits, so I will give you a range and just remember, you can always adjust from there! Recipes are kinda hard for me because I am just a pourer and a shaker = )
Ingredients for the bowl pictured:
1 Apple (peeled if you want)
1/4 to 1/2 cup Fresh or Frozen Blueberries
2/3 to 3/4 cup Orange Juice (I use Simply Orange or an equivalent store brand)
1/4 cup Rice Milk
1/8 - 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1 -2 tsp Maple Syrup (adjust with the sweetness of your fruit)
Hang on, this is tough = ) I use my Pampered Chef Apple Slicer for the apple, and then cut it up in bite sized pieces. I cut the orange in half and then in thirds so they are like smiles and then peel out the sections. I peel the banana and slice (you could even slice up a frozen banana). Put in the blueberries. I pour the orange juice over just like I would cover cereal. I give a range because the size of your fruit will differ. Add the rice milk, cinnamon and maple syrup. Stir and Enjoy!
Blessings to you always! Joelle
