3 Simple Recipes to Create with your Child

It’s the summer, and you need to engage your kids at home? Especially when they are stuck at home with a looming pandemic. The best possible way is for you to cook with them, this would mean that you would get to spend some time with your child(ren) and help them escape their boredom. So let the cooking begin and the kitchen turners upside down. 

Three simple recipes that you can create with your child:

1. Let’s make something to drink to quench this summer heat. An Oatmeal Cookie smoothie is healthy and refreshing for the kids to try. All you need is 20 minutes, and you have yourself a milk+cookie smoothie. 

The ingredients for this smoothie are – 3/4 cup rolled oats, ¼ cup raisins, 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, 1 cup whole milk (add more if you please), 1/2 cup full-fat vanilla yogurt, 1 tablespoon sugar (preferably brown as its a healthier option). 

Time to make this smoothie and devour it – Add oats, raisins, pumpkin spice into a blender, and slowly add the milk to make sure it covers the oats. Set aside for 15 minutes and make sure it’s soft. Now back to the blender for a minute and add yogurt, sugar, and ice keep blending and voila it’s ready to be poured. 

2. Apple Granola, a healthy snack is easy to make and good for your kids’ energy that they require to grow. The best part is this energetic snack requires a few ingredients, and once your child knows how to make it, they can make it for themselves whenever they are hungry as it takes only 5 minutes to prepare. 

All you need are apples, peanut butter, crushed granola bars, cinnamon, and sugar. 

Prepare the ingredients by laying them out on a table. Give the children apple slices so that they can coat it with a layer of peanut butter. Now dip the coated apple slice in a bowl of crushed granola. On the side mix cinnamon and sugar, sprinkle this mixture on your apple granola for extra flavor. Now it’s time to munch on this apple granola bar. 

3. Now, for the evening’s dessert, for all those sweet tooth cravings and something to complete your meal. Hence, presenting a simple microwave Chocolate marshmallow cake that one can make in a mug. You do not require an oven to make this, and a microwave will suffice.

Ingredients you need are ½ cup sugar, ½ buttermilk, ¼ vegetable oil, 1 egg, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, ⅓ floor, 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, ⅛ teaspoon baking soda and a pinch of salt.

It’s time to spend 15 minutes making this delicious goody. All you have to do is first mix the sugar, buttermilk, vegetable oil, egg, vanilla extract in a bowl—next start whisking and add flour, unsweetened cocoa, baking soda, and salt. The batter is ready, so take a microwavable mug coat with butter and pour the mixture into the mug. Keep it in the microwave for about two minutes, keep checking the cake, take a toothpick, and check if the cake has cooked. Lastly, take a marshmallow and put it on the cake and heat it. Voila, you have a beautiful dessert ready to be eaten. 

Final Thoughts 

While baking and cooking with your kid, be careful. Please do not leave the kid alone in the kitchen as they are not quite aware of how to use sharp objects yet. Therefore limit them to simple tasks and some of the ingredients of the recipe can be given to them, and they can mix and enjoy their masterpiece.
