I have 3 kids one 18 and the other two 16 (twins!!), They sometime enjoy eating fruits if you give them peeled, sliced decorated with ice cream or salads in a bowl to where ever they are :), this is asking for too much, yes, otherwise they don’t mind not eating it at all. My eldest has made an alarm telling her it’s her fruit time, everyday morning and evening, I was quite surprised for a few days she would promptly eat a fruit, that was totally rejoicing day of my life I thought, as took this initiative on her own Yup!.. but, that didn’t last still her mobile goes beep., beep., but she always gives me some reason that she forgot to eat.
So, I have come back to my way of giving them fruits, like this making smoothies, Apparently I do have a few smoothies recipes in my draft which I have never been able to post, may be someday I will do.. 🙂
Coming to this post..
As I have been away from blogging for lots of reasons, I had completely forgotten about my joining the Mom’s Crazy Cooking Challenge, I suddenly remembered yesterday, that I haven’t done anything at all for the challenge, I just decided I will write to Tina and told her my situation and said I might not be able to participate after all, I was a bit upset too.., I told her I might try out something but I might not be able to post it right on time, as I simply cannot do immediately for other things which need me when you come back home from work, like my kids who are hungry ( as always), immediately when they see their mum, because they are staying at home for their study holidays as they have exams whole of two months!!. So, basically I have no domestic help :), makes me more tired..
As Tina of #CCC had challenged all the participants to make smoothies this month, you will be enjoying to see a whole lot of them here in the linky below, I would like to thank Tina, for encouraging me to take up and whip up something for this challenge, which I immensely from my heart enjoy this with this team of bloggers.., they are mind blowing.., We have to choose a recipe from other blogger to participate in this challenge and here I am with this recipe with a little twist of my own just to make my kids enjoy it more to their needs, I adapted this recipe from Yummy Food of Lubna Karim.

STRAWBERRY AND MELON SMOOTHIE WITH MUSELI
Recipe Source : Yummy Food
1 Cup of chopped Strawberries
1 Cup of Yellow Melon
1/2 Cup Museli
1/4 Cup of Agave Nectar and Sweet Freedom (100% fruit)
1 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Yogurt (home made)
Take Museli in a bowl add hot milk over it and cover it till needed.
Take chopped Strawberries and melon in a blender and blend it smooth to this add the sweetners and yogurt.
Strain out the milk from the museli and add this to the blender and blend once again, to this add the strained milk and give a whirl again so they all blend together well again.
Pour them into the glasses, top it with Coco pops and serve.
Serve it chilled or immediately.
I soaked Museli before blending as my kids don’t like museli this way they didn’t know I had museli in it :), If you like museli, you can just skip this step and top the smoothie with museli and serve.
They love Coco pops so I just topped it with them, just to attract them to it.
You can chop any other fruits or nuts to top them up for a full filling smoothie.
Please do not compare my photos with hers as I am just a Mobile photographer :))
