Frozen Banana Crunch Popsicles


This is a fun alternative to an ice lolly, with a portion of fruit shoehorned in.

We found it on
Baking Bites and there are clear instructions there on how to make it.

Because the banana is frozen and has a sweetened crunchy coating it feels more of a treat.

We have also seen versions using crushed up Special K type cereals - especially good are the ones with the berries as you get little flakes of chewy red in the coating. You can use a pestle and mortar or a quick pulse in a food mixer to make the pieces small enough.



You can find the original instructions here.

Easter Bunny Breakfast with Scrambled Egg and Bacon Loving this creative Easter breakfast. I know it's fab to get up and do the Easter egg hunt, but you need to get some 'proper food' into kids before they really pile in to the pile of chocolate. This is a great breakfast idea which will fill them up and make them smile and enable you to get them to postpone the chocolate carnage for a little longer. The recipe was created by Carrie over at worthpinning.com and was inspired by some ...

Easter Chick Boiled Eggs This is a lovely idea originally from the Manga Cookbook, but we saw in on JustJENN's recipe site, where she tried it out with her own children.

Kids eat so much sweet food over Easter, you need to make sure they are getting a little protein in to stop their blood sugar constantly rocketing up and down. So if you're having an Easter themed meal, you could put some of these in the mix. If you'...
