Recently, Alisa Rosa, a mom of one of our lil’ chefs, contacted me about a school project her child was working on. Chef Ariana, 6, had to do some research about Africa and make a simple recipe to share with her first grade class along with the research she had done on Africa.
After doing some research of my own to find a simple child-friendly recipe, I found some really amazing recipes! From Malva Pudding (a South African baked dessert) to Sweet and Nutty Moroccan Couscous, I starting getting super excited about sharing some of these amazing recipes in future Flour Power classes!
However, knowing that Chef Ariana had the challenge of putting something together very quickly without a lot of help at school, I found a simple African Fruit Punch recipe for children that I shared with her mom.
Chef Ariana’s mom followed up after her presentation at school and reported that all of her classmates loved the recipe and that it all tasted like a fantastic smoothie!
With the weather warming up, it’s a great time to give this simple recipe a try with your lil’ chef and see if you agree with Chef Ariana and her classmates at Hillside Christian School in Fuquay-Varina! Enjoy!
