Chocolate Cranberry Delight with Berry Cubes

bright

A wonderful idea to do with your children is to make berry cubes!  These pictured above are made with strawberries, blueberries, and bananas.  My son really likes eating “ice cream” and I don’t mind giving it to him when there’s no actual ice cream in it.  The ice cube tray that i used to make these cool star shapes were from Ikea.

Now on to the drink!  There is so much yum going on here  that you will swear you were having the most fattening thing in the world, but I promise, its healthy!  Although it IS a dessert, and should be treated as the occasional sweet fix that it is.   Although the sugars in this drink are all natural, it still counts as sugar.  There are 18g of sugar in 1/3 cup of dried cranberries.   Taking that into consideration, there are numerous health benefits to eating dried cranberries, such as vitamin C, antioxidants, helping to prevent urinary tract infections and other problems of the kidneys such as kidney stones, they ward off infections of the ears, nose and throat, and they are high in vitamin E, helping your skin to glow!

Fruit Cubes:

  • 4 strawberries
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup nut or oat milk of your choice

Blend all until smooth and then put them in ice cube trays.

Chocolate Cranberry Delight:

Blend it all until smooth and then put the berry cubes in.

The taste as the Chocolate Cranberry smoothie melts the berry cubes will be sure to please even the most demanding of sweet tooth’s

  1. I love the stars, I am a firm believer that food presented well tastes better. Not that I always make things look beautiful but I try…a little extra effort goes a long way. It also reminds us to stop and be grateful for the sustenance
