any quick vegan recipes for kids?
like the regular dishes we would eat but the vegan equvalent ?? thanks x
Pronounced “Oar-ah-cop-uh-wah-pee”. It will take a few practice runs verbalizing it, but you’ll soon have it memorized! I created this recipe the other day, wanting to give my kids a fun, new, healthy snack. The name is comprised of the first two letters of each of the ingredients. My kids love silly words like this, and it instantly became both a favorite snack and favorite word to say!
I won’t lie to you…this recipe takes some hand muscle and patience to pack together into balls that are firm enough not to fall apart. To make it easier on yourself, you can probably just add some more peanut butter or drizzle in some pure maple syrup. If you do, and find that after chilling them, they’re still sticky, you can always roll them in some ground nuts, coconut or cocoa powder. I prefer snack balls that don’t leave the kids’ hands sticky, so I always make these following the recipe below.
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup coconut (unsweetened), shredded
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup walnuts
6 Tbsp. Natural peanut butter
Combine the oats and coconut in a bowl. In a food processor, grind the raisins, pumpkin seeds, walnuts and peanut butter until it forms a cohesive sticky mass. Then you can either throw the oats and coconut in the food processor and blend with the sticky mass or just combine in the bowl with your hands. The mixture will be similar to breadcrumbs.
Chill in the fridge for at least an hour. (Don’t skip this step! If you serve them right away, they will crumble apart when bitten into. They need to firm up a bit in the fridge.)
Makes approx. 24 (1-inch) balls.
This recipe really couldn’t be easier. Though extremely simple, the pineapple and vanilla give these creamsicles a very sweet tropical aroma and taste! You will notice something strange happening to the milk when you add the pineapple juice to it. It’s similar to what happens when you add lemon juice to milk (it changes the composition of the milk…it starts to separate somehow.) But don’t worry about that, it doesn’t change the taste or the function of these popsicles. I labeled this as a snack, though it can certainly be considered dessert as well!
vanilla soy milk*
Combine equal amounts of juice and milk (amount will vary according to size and quantity of your particular molds.) Stir the liquids together and immediately pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
Better than candy! Quick, easy, delicious and nutritious. What more could you want in a snack?! These will keep in the fridge for quite awhile, but I can’t really say just how long, as ours don’t ever last more than a day. These are a great snack on their own, or as a special treat to accompany your popcorn on movie night! This is one of those recipes that your kids are gonna want to help out with. There’s just something about rolling sticky stuff into little balls that brings kids running!
So you have an idea of the size, the raisin walnut balls in the photo are kid-bite-sized (less than an inch). They are sitting on a children’s play tea set saucer.
Raisin Walnut Balls
1 cup raisins
1 cup walnuts
In a food processor, mix the raisins and walnuts until they become a solid, sticky ball. Roll into individual balls (kid-sized-bites are good). Let cool and solidify a bit in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving.
