I live with an addict. Her name is Esme and her poison is sugar. “Mum, was I good today?” she’ll ask. If tell her she’s been good then she takes a shot: “Then I’d like a chocolate treat!” Obviously she got the idea of treats as rewards from somewhere… I don’t, maybe one of the kids at daycare?
At snack time today I put off the request for cookies by suggesting we make “milkshakes” together. Really it’s a smoothie but milkshake sounds more treaty to her and that works for me. It’s something we can make together and that killed about twenty minutes on a chilly, indoor day. I’m not going to write out a recipe because basically whatever you’ve got hanging around the kitchen will do. Here’s what we used:
Then we added some plain probiotic yogurt. You could use any yogurt, really, I just wanted to be able to give a bit of this to the baby so I wanted to use something without sugar. We probably used about half a cup or so.
I added a bit of orange juice to thin it out. I used pineapple juice the last time we made smoothies and it was really good, too.
