It was really fun to create and have fun with my family while making a healthy but cool breakfast!
So we started out by whipping up some pancake batter..and to give it a bit of fruity princess flair we added in some strawberry puree(aka 1 small jar of strawberry baby puree). This kicks up the healthy factor and keeps out the fruit chunks that Orangie refuses to eat! We also added some red food colour to make them more pink! Just cook up the pancakes like normal only keeping them on the smaller kid-friendly size..
So while the mr was frying up our pancakes, I had Orangie helping me out making fun watermelon cut-outs for other aspects of our 'cake'.
On the other side of the kitchen I had Hero set-up making the 'candles' for on our 'cake'. She is skewering blueberries and watermelon teddybear cut-outs onto toothpicks.
Now it's time to assemble them! Stack 2 pink pancakes, add on watermelon flower, a dollop of vanilla yogurt, a few sprinkles, and a fruit 'candle'! Voila! Healthy kid-friendly FUN breakfast!
Now, Orangie decided her food couldn't be eaten this way..so she took it apart and dunked her pancake in the yogurt! Phew! She LOVED it! Actually we all LOVED this breakfast!
Oh! and before I go..here's a shot of the girls in the aprons from the kit! they LOVE them!
(Hero took my adult size one!)
Please let me know if you try out this recipe! I'd love to know what you think! :)
