Berry Oaty Breakfast Pots

If you're a regular reader, you will know we enjoy breakfast here at Clean Little Tummies. This week, I'm back with another simple idea to help mix up your breakfast menu. These tasty little pots of goodness come together quickly in the morning, and there's only one bit of baking involved.

3-Ingredient Clean Little Easter Eggs

Easter is certainly upon us! Everywhere I look I see eggs, bunnies, chicks and soooo (too?) much enticing chocolate. Of course we will be treating ourselves to some chocolate this Easter, but to even things up I have crafted a little frozen Easter treat made from just three ingredients - banana, yoghurt and berries - which is healthier and more nutritious that a chocolate Easter egg, but still feels a little indulgent. 

Oaty Banana Bread

A friend of mine said to me recently that I couldn't really be considered a “family food blogger” if I didn't have a banana bread recipe. All kids love banana bread! So, my friend, here is a Clean Little Tummies Oaty Banana Bread to set the record straight and keep up with all the other family food bloggers out there! 

It's Healthy(ish) Hot Chocolate Time!

The mornings are dark, the nights are even darker, the leaves are on the ground...which can only mean it's time to cosy up for Autumn. And what better way to do that than with a warming mug of hot chocolate - filled with some natural sweetness and goodness for you and your Clean Little Tummies of course!

Pumpkin Spice (Pancakes!) & All Things Nice

We're loving Autumn here at Clean Little Tummies. Yes, we are without a proper kitchen. Yes, we don't have a floor, and yes, our fridge is in the garage. But how can we not get excited by all the gorgeous Autumn feels that are around? The colours, smells and sounds get me every year - how is it all so beautiful? Walking to school every day, crunching through the leaves is one of my favourite sounds. And, of course, all the pumpkins that are everywhere. Is there an Instagram feed without a little white pumpkin going on? I don't think so. 

Get Ready for Summer Holidays

As I write, we are in the last full week of school here in the UK, with six long weeks stretching out in front of us. I think every Mum (& Dad) in the country is filled with excitement - and terror. How lovely it will be to not do the school run for six weeks, constantly giving them time deadlines, 'hurry up we're going to be late, the bell has gone, come on...', and giving them some freedom to play and just be children. The flip side, of course, is less appealing: Sibling arguments, whinging when they don't get to do exactly what they want, and the constant need for food, snacks, picnics... and more snacks.

Summer Sunshiney Smoothies

We are in the middle of renovations this week so things have been busy here in the Clean Little Tummies household. And just as I felt like everything was falling apart, and it was all storms-and-darkness, pineapples appeared at our local market! Such a sunshiney, tropical fruit, and we've had the sunshine to match recently. This led me to think about some tropical flavoured smoothies and - in between walls being knocked down- I've managed to rustle up a little favourite of ours.

Tropical Lollies

Our last batch of Summer Ice Lollies were such a hit with all of you, it got me thinking of more ways to cool off on those long, hot summer days. Being so hot, no one wants to spend longer in the kitchen than they have to, so for me summer is more about blitzing than baking. Enter the Tropical lollies! They are super simple, with only three ingredients, and naturally sweet and refreshing. (Just make sure you make a big batch, as they'll be back for more!)

Chocolate Pancakes Fit For a Father!

With father's Day fast approaching, it is time to think about how we will treat our lovely, kind Daddy here at Clean Little Tummies. Daddy is often the bottom of the pile, but on Father's day we have chance to say thank you for all he does for us. Breakfast is a lovely way to spoil any deserving Daddy - and we have just the recipe for you (and him)! A clean, healthy recipe that tastes just as good as the real deal, tried and tested here at Clean Little Tummies, these pancakes will not disappoint.

Strawberry-topped Summer Ice Lollies

I first came up with this recipe when we were enjoying the first days of beautiful British spring. The sun was out, and so was the garden furniture and the barbecue. But, since then the weather has felt more like November again! Ever the optimist, I hope that by sharing this recipe the sun will come out and you will be in need of some coolness for your Clean Little Tummies.

Our Warm and Comforting Nutty Crumble

Winter is definitely upon us. It's cold, really cold, and I, like many others, find myself in need of some warmth and comfort in food...which leads me to an Apple Crumble. Who doesn't love crumble? A childhood staple on winter's days, at school or after the family Sunday Roast. So I'm here today with a "clean" version which has had the seal of approval from the Clean Little Tummies. 

 

Date & Raisin Breakfast Loaf

We're great porridge lovers in our house (that's another blog post coming soon...) but we also like toast, or any sort of finger food that can be eaten while waiting for the porridge to cook. Recently, we've been munching our way through this Date & Raisin Breakfast Loaf, which provides a natural sweetness that any 'clean little tummy' will enjoy and makes for a scrumptious alternative to ordinary toast.
