When it comes to kid friendly snacks it could be challenging to compete with prepackaged, highly processed, sugary snacks that get so much exposure. However I have a feeling that this tasty snack from “Plant Powered Families -Over 100 Kid-Tested, Whole-Foods Vegan Recipes “ will quickly become your kid’s favorite .

 

“This idea came to me one day after school. I wanted to give my girls a treat, but something nutritious-and quick! This pudding came together in a flash and their eyes sure lit up!”

Ingredients

Peanut Butter Pudding

  • 3/4 cup pitted dates
  • 1/3 cup unsalted peanut butter or other nut butter (see
  • notes)
  • 1 tablespoon white chia seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon nondairy milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 –4 teaspoons pure maple syrup for extra sweetening
  • optional

Berrylicious Swirl

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries or raspberries see note
  • 2 –3 tablespoons pure maple syrup or agave nectar
  • Pinch sea salt

Instructions

To make the peanut butter pudding

  1. In a blender, puree the dates, peanut butter, chia seeds, sea salt, milk, and vanilla extract until
  2. smooth (if using a high-speed blender, this will be quick; with a standard blender, you may need to scrape down the sides of the blender a few times). If you’d like additional sweetener, add the maple syrup, a teaspoon or two at a time, to taste.

To make the berrylicious swirl

  1. Using a blender or immersion blender, puree the berries, maple syrup, and sea salt until semi smooth. If using frozen berries, it will take a little longer.

To assemble

  1. Dollop the berry mixture on the peanut butter pudding, or “swirl” it through.

Recipe Notes

Peanut Butter Note:
Peanut butters often have salt added, even the natural varieties. Check the ingredients—if it does, reduce or omit salt.

Nut Butter Note:
If substituting a nut butter like almond, try adding a touch of orange zest. It pairs beautifully with almond butter!

Berries Note:
If using seasonal fresh berries, they may be sweeter than frozen. Puree with just 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, and add extra to taste.With frozen berries,I usually use 2 tablespoons syrup
