Blogging Marathon# 54: Week 2/ Day 1

Theme: Kid’s Delight — Fruits in any form

Dish: Mango-Almond Smoothie

We are starting a brand new week of blogging marathon and my theme for this week is ‘Fruits in any form‘. It’s for Valli’s Kid’s Delight event being hosted this month by Harini. I have 2 extremes at home, my son doesn’t want to touch any fruit and my daughter loves most of the fruits. So for this week, I’ve tried to make dishes that would (hopefully) please both of them.

First up is this delicious and nutritious mango-almond smoothie. With mango season in full swing, I am making sure to keep fresh, juicy mangoes in stock all the time. We eat most of them as is — peeled and diced.

My daughter gets all excited when I start peeling the mangoes but my picky son runs the other way. After lot of coercing he ate 1 or 2 pieces and said it tastes good and now he understands why mango lassi tastes so good. Moral of the story is he would rather drink his fruit than eat them. So here’s one way I can get him to eat/ drink some mangoes.

This recipe is from a Telugu cooking show. Smoothie looked so thick and delicious on TV, that I was tempted to make it right away. Almonds make the smoothie creamy and nutty. Both my kids slurped it right up.

  1. Understanding kids’ eating habit is indeed a great effort. Great that you made your son enjoy mangoes. This looks so inviting..

  2. I like to eat my fruits and also these kinds of smoothies just as my little one. Thanks for sending it to the ‘Kid’s delight’.

  3. Pictures are so yum!…so wonderful reading about your kids..and the way we struggle most times to get them taste all, really is so taxing..it amazes me that your kids are not so fussy as mine!..
