Tropical foods were the topic of discussion at Freshmade NYC’s last Kids Dinner Club class (ages 3 to 5) so they couldn’t resist making a tropical salad! The kids loved it because it was colorful with a touch of sweetness thanks to the mango. Get the recipe!
It’s hot out there in New York City so this week we are focusing on foods that hydrate! Did you know that watermelon is 92% water and strawberries are 91% water? Both also contain an impressive amount of vitamin C! Our Watermelon-Mint Smoothie combines both watermelon and strawberries, simply blended with a touch of mint! Delicious, hydrating and refreshing! Get the recipe.
Is juicing just for grown ups? No way! At Freshmade they know that’s not the case. The majority of the kids who attend their cooking classes love fresh made juice. They decided to make a refreshing green juice for their afterschool snack of the week. And yes, the kids loved it. Why not give your kids a juicy treat when they get home from school today? You might be surprised at how much they like it.
This week we brought a little Asian-flare into our Freshmade kitchen. The kids made homemade, healthy Carrot-Squash Potstickers that were served with a simple Citrus-Tamari Dressing. You don’t have to limit yourself to just carrot-squash in the potstickers. Other great ingredients to fill these with are mushrooms, ginger, cabbage, bell peppers, fresh herbs like parsley and cilantro, sweet potato and even apples!
