Goodness Smoothies

We're getting back into routine here with everyone back to school and work this week - which means more time for posts from me! Earlier this week I shared a green smoothie with my Instagram followers to great acclaim, so I thought I'd post the recipe here for you all to try. It is really simple - bananas and spinach, with a bit of date for sweetness - but I like it because it gets some greens into the Clean Little Tummies before they've even left the house in the morning, and the banana and date works wonders at making greens more fun for kids. Sipped with breakfast, it is a filling and nutritious start to the day.

Carrot Cake Smoothies

Who doesn't love carrot cake? It is a firm favourite in this house and now I've created a smoothie which gives us a flavour fix without all the sugar and nasties. This makes a tasty breakfast or a good afternoon pick me up for tired mummies. You might think the grated carrot won't get paste your Clean Tummies but try it, mine ate it without knowing what was in it and were so surprised when I told them they'd just eaten carrots for breakfast! You won't know until you try!

Mini Energy Bites For Clean Little Tummies

Here at Clean Little Tummies it's safe to say we're big fans of energy bites and balls! At any given moment we have a variety on the go at home, each featuring different nuts and flavours, some bought, some home made. They make such a delicious and nutritious mid-morning snack or after-school pick me up. One of our favourite flavours is the "cashew bar" - there are some yummy ones on the market, but we've recently become fans of the nibbles from the lovely people at Nakd. But after slowly accumulating a few too many Nakd wrappers, I started thinking... we could always create our own mini version, in the true essence of Clean Little Tummies! (And save the costs, and the packaging!)

Clean Little Breakfast Muffins

We're on half term this week, so our mornings have been slower, more relaxed and just generally more pleasant (and with a lot less nagging!) But, of course, this week won't last forever (sigh) so I'm here with a new breakfast idea that is ready to go first thing and also makes a lovely end of half term activity for your Clean Little Tummies.

Clean Little Christmas Cookies

The Festive period has well and truly arrived. Everywhere we look we spy a Father Christmas, much to little Joe's amusement.  There are Christmas lights all over the place, every other song on the radio is a Christmas hit and there is Christmas food everywhere you look. Yum! 

 

Little Bites of Energy for Mummies

It's been a tough week of almost-three-year-old behaviour here at Clean Little Tummies. There have been tears and tantrums -- his and mine! You all know those days...We've all had them, no matter how in control everyone else may look, we know anyone with a toddler is only a broken breadstick away from a meltdown. So, whilst a glass of wine would be nice, it might not be the best option mid-morning or just before the afternoon school run. I have a little energy bite recipe which is quick to whip up and might just rescue you from toddlers on the rampage!!
