Summer’s Coming!

The warm days are making an appearance and it’s time for the school year to end.  Naturally, this leads to a chorus of “It’s hot!” or “I’m bored!”  (Humans have a talent for stating the very obvious.) Let’s start off right, then, and try some delicious new treats that are both cool and guilt-free.

We’re Cookin’!

There are still open spots for the Healthy Cooking for Kids class at Eco Kids on June 1!  It’s a great way to teach your child some kitchen skills while enjoying the Rainbow Pasta you make.  A free souvenir for every child, too.  Register here and we’ll see you in the kitchen!

Colorful, fun and delicious!  Don't worry.  We won't tell the kids they're healthy.

Fruit Popsicles

(special thanks to Heather Thomas)

Ingredients:
3 cups watermelon puree (seedless recommended)
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
1 peach or nectarine, diced small
1 handful fresh cherries, pitted and chopped

Cut the watermelon into chunks and then puree it in a blender until smooth. Set aside.

Set out about 1 dozen popsicle molds (amount needed will vary depending on size of molds). Fill each one with the chopped fresh fruit. Then pour in the watermelon puree until each mold is full to the top. Place a popsicle stick into each one. Place into your freezer and freeze for about 6 to 8 hours.

Tip: run the popsicle molds under warm water for a few seconds, and they will be easier to remove from the mold.
