Sweet spring garden

Preparation time:   Freezing time: 2-3h   | Servings: 15

Are you done with winter? I wish I was, but there is still some snow out there and temperatures below zero, even if we are begin of April. So, to call out for spring, I did some colorful and yummy sweet treats. All natural and healthy, there is just a tiny bit of chocolate, but this can be forgiven :) My daughter loved it and had hard time to decide which one to pick first. It is very easy to make and the result is really great, try it yourself and you will see!Sweet spring garden - frozen fruits and yogurt

Ingredients

  • 1/2 of mango
  • 1 slice of watermelon
  • 20 raspberries
  • 3 tablespoons of natural yogurt
  • few chocolate chips (both black and white)
  • maple syrup, honey or sugar

Supplies I used

Did you know that health food stores on the West Coast of the United States began selling pureed fruit drinks in the 1930s, based on recipes that originated in Brazil? This was the beginning of a smoothie!

Preparation

Step1 Prepare fruit smoothies:
- dark pink smoothie: mix raspberries with 1 tablespoon of yogurt. You may add a bit of maple syrup, honey or sugar; adjust the quantity to your taste. Start with 1/2 of teaspoon and add more if needed.
- yellow smoothie: mix mango with 1 tablespoon of yogurt. I have not added anything else, as it was sweet enough for me.
- pale pink smoothie: mix watermelon with 1 tablespoon of yogurt. You may add a bit of maple syrup, honey or sugar; adjust the quantity to your taste. Start with 1/2 of teaspoon and add more if needed.

Step2 Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave until tender, just enough to be able to re-shape the chocolate. I used this flowers and insects silicone mold with different shapes and just played with mixing the colors and flavors. I put some chocolate as flowers' centers, middle of the butterflies, heads of ladybugs and tulip petals. Once the chocolate is in place, just pour the fruits smoothie in the molds. You can easily mix them if you wish, so it is even more colorful. Spring garden dessert for kids step2

Step3 Freeze everything for about 1-3hours, you may also prepare it few days ahead and keep in the freezer. When ready, turn the mold upside-down and remove the treats gently. Enjoy! Spring garden dessert for kids step3
