No bake cooking with kids

here are some awesome ideas

Berry Breakfast Trifle

  • 2 cups low-fat natural yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cups breakfast cereal (Muesli or oats based)
  • 1 punnet raspberries or strawberries
  • 1 punnet blueberries

Yoghurt and honey in a bowl and mix well. Divide half the yoghurt evenly between 4 small bowls or tall glasses.  Top with half of the cereal and then half of the berries.   Repeat layers with remaining ingredients.



Double Choc Balls

  • 8 Weetabix, crushed
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • 1 x 395g can sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup chocolate sprinkles

Place ingredients, except chocolate sprinkles in a large bowl.  Mix well.  Form mixture into 30 balls and toss in chocolate sprinkles until covered.



Frozen Fruit Pops

  • 16 lolly sticks
  • 2 large just ripe bananas
  • 1 punnet strawberries, hulled
  • ¼ pineapple, peeled
  • juice of 1 orange

Peel all fruit and cut into 3cm sized pieces.  Soak banana in orange juice for 2 minutes.  Thread fruit onto sticks.  Place in a container and freeze for 4 hours, or until ready to serve.  Serve frozen.  These fruit pops can be frozen for up to three months.
