We have been speaking with Kid's Kitchen author Fiona Bird this week to come up with some new Soreen recipes that everyone can cook for their heroes to enjoy after Sports Relief on the 21st March.
Cooking with Kids for Sport Relief – by Fiona Bird
Anyone knows that cooking with children may take a little longer and at times stretch your patience but the best news is that the peeling, stirring, kneading, measuring and pouring have an invisible added ingredient – it’s called learning - and it lasts a lifetime.
Be prepared to teach kids nutrition by example. If you eat too many sugary snacks you can’t expect your child to do otherwise.
Talk about a balanced plate for good health and encourage rainbows of colour on plates.
Water is cool after exercise and frozen water bottles help to keep snack box contents cool as well.
Here’s a recipe that with, prior freezer preparation, can be whizzed up at the last moment. It’s an Instant cooler after exercise and is made from Soreen’s Fruity Five mixed with bananas and reduced fat crème fraiche.
Soreen Fruity Five Ice-cream
What to find:
100g (4 slices) Soreen Fruity Five
200g (2) peeled bananas
Approx 100g (2 tbsps) reduced fat crème fraiche
Freezer proof tray
What to do:
1. Cut the Soreen Fruity Five into small cubes and the bananas into thin slices. Lay the Soreen Fruity Five cubes and banana slices on a freezer proof tray and open freeze for at least 1½ - 2 hours.
2. Put the frozen Soreen Fruity Five cubes, banana slices and crème fraiche into a food processor and put the lid on. With dry hands, use the pulse button to blend – quick pulses until it mixes up. Add a little more crème fraiche if required – enough to make a creamy ice-cream.
3. Spoon the Soreen Fruity Five Ice-cream into a bowl or ice-cream cone and EAT IMMEDIATELY before it melts.
