I use my Ninja blender to make all kinds of koncoctions. The amount of liquid used is what determines whether to classify the results as a smoothie, a puree, or a pudding. As I mentioned in my smoothie post, I never use dairy or soy because of my little one’s allergies to those ingredients.
Here are two of our favorites:
Rice puree is a great for breakfast or a filling snack. It’s alternative to oatmeal, inexpensive, and can be served hot or cold.
Ingredients: cooked rice and water. Directions: Add water to the cooked rice until desired thickness is achieved.
To flavor add whatever your taste buds prefer. Our favorite way to make this is to flavor with cinnamon with either a little honey or brown sugar. We’ve also added applesauce, chopped nuts, or raisins.
If you want your kids believing they are eating chocolate pudding, read on. The basic recipe for avocado pudding is avocados, bananas, and water. Cocoa powder is added for the brown color of chocolate pudding.
You can leave out the bananas and use dates or date paste which add sweetness to the avocados.
In my Pantry Challenge post, I made four different versions of avocado pudding which you can reference at your leisure.
This recipe is thick. The amount of water you add will determine whether you call it a smoothie or a pudding.
If you like halava, you’ll find this to be a treat.
The basic recipe is banana, tahini, a little honey, and water. Blend. It tastes like a liquid halava bar. Yummm.
Whether a smoothie, puree, or pudding all them are healthy without artificial ingredients. Meal or snack, they are a big hit and I am on too pleased to oblige if seconds are requested.
Thanks for reading. Happy koncocting.
