Guilt-Free and Healthy Rainbow Desserts
Not all desserts mean lots of calories! Check out some of our healthy ideas for rainbow desserts without the guilt factor and a fun way to get extra fruit into reluctant kids.
Mini Fruit Tacos
These little fruit tacos from Sugar Dish Me are cinnamon sugar tortillas stuffed with honey cinnamon cream cheese and all your favourite fruit. They are easy to prepare and work well as party food or a fun after school snack.
Rainbow Fruit Skewers
Vitamin-packed fruit skewers are a simple, colourful and fun way to get kids to eat fruit, and they’ll love helping to make them too. Clean Food Crush uses raspberries, strawberries, melon, mango, pineapple, kiwi, grapes and blueberries for these.
You could try serving new fruits, alongside familiar fruits to introduce new flavours and textures in a fun way.
These whole fruit and veggie rainbow popsicles from Yummy Mummy Kitchen are as delicious and nourishing as they are pretty. They have no artificial food dyes or added sweeteners, and those distinct rainbow layers are made with blended whole fruit and veggies.
Rainbow Chia Pudding
This healthy rainbow chia pudding from Girl Phat is perfect for breakfast, snacks or dessert – and packed with fruit and delicious goodness!
Okay, so this isn’t a quick fix smoothie to make on a busy morning, but it would make an epic Vitamin C boost on the weekends or special occasions.
We love the suggestion from The First Year Blog to make this rainbow smoothie an unforgettable treat – stick a gold chocolate coin in the bottom of the glass before adding the smoothie. That way when someone is finished drinking it, they find gold at the end of the rainbow!
