GUMMY VITES – Sugar-free treats for kids

by Editor

Trying to get your kids to eat their fruit and veggies can be a full-time job…But, it doesn’t have to be. You just need to get creative! There are so many alternatives to artificially sweetened treats like carrot cake naturally sweetened with pineapple and carrots or pumpkin / butternut blondies.

We understand the struggle so here are our alternatives to artificially or added sugar, sweet treats for kids.

You can use fruit, some naturally sweeter veggies (carrots, pumpkin, butternut), fruit juice or dried fruits to sweeten treats for your children. Make sure to use 100% fruit juice and check that is doesn’t have any added sugars.

Babies and toddlers are generally happy with a more subtle sweet flavour so fruit or veggies would be suitable for creating sweet treats for them.

Try our “healthy” ice cream made using frozen bananas and cream or coconut cream as the base. You will need a:

  • High-powered blender
  • Plastic container
  • Freezer
  • Ice-cream scoop

You can always make plain banana flavoured ice cream, but to keep things interesting we suggest trying one of our flavour combinations. As the banana flavour can easily be disguised.

Here are our different flavours to try:

  • Cocoa and vanilla essence
  • Blueberries and cinnamon
  • Peanut butter
  • Mango and desiccated coconut

Method:

1. Cut, peel and freeze your bananas.

2. Blend the frozen bananas.

3. Add in your chosen flavour (cocoa, berries, peanut butter or mango)

4. If it is too thick add a dash of cream or coconut cream – this will add some extra sweetness as well!

5. Store in the freezer in a plastic container until you are ready to serve.

6. Serve it with a sprinkle of your chosen flavour (cocoa, berries, peanut butter or mango & desiccated coconut) on top.
