Kid-Friendly Healthy Bubble Tea

Kid-Friendly Healthy Bubble Tea

Have you ever heard of bubble tea!? It’s a Taiwanese tea-based drink that is a frothy mix of milk, tea, fruit and tapioca pearls (boba). It’s also FULL of caffeine and sugar, which is probably why it is one of my favorite sweet treats. But it’s a fun experience that I always wanted to share with the kids — albeit in a much healthier way. So we came up with this fun colorful take on the drink that is much more kid-friend my kiddos LOVED it!

Kid-Friendly Healthy Bubble Tea

To make our kid-friendly healthy bubble tea, you’ll need:

  • 1 cup rainbow boba
  • 2 cups vanilla almond milk
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen fruit (we used strawberries we picked and froze ourselves)
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • bubble tea straws (not necessary, but it’s much more fun to eat this way because you can scoop up the pearls and regular straws are too narrow to fit the boba!)

How to make:

  1. Make rainbow boba according to package directions.
  2. Blend almond milk, frozen fruit, and honey in a blender.
  3. Divide boba equally between two glasses and fill with fruit milk blend.
  4. Top with a bubble tea straw and go to town!

P.S. thanks to The Land of Nod for the fabulous + bubbly garlands!! I continue to be totally obsessed with all the Nod garlands and use them for everything from party styling to wrapping presents to permanent room decor.

Cheddar Bunny Chicken Tender Recipe Ingredients:

  • Annie’s Cheddar Bunny Crackers (or similar cheddar crackers)
  • 1 chicken breast
  • Fat-Free Greek yogurt
  • Salt and pepper

How to:

  1. First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then, start by placing the Cheddar Bunny crackers in a Ziploc bag and then use a rolling pin to crush them. Make sure the pieces aren’t too fine, you’ll want the pieces to be similar in size to panko breadcrumbs! Cheddar Bunny Chicken Tender Recipe
  2. Pour the cracker crumbs and the yogurt into separate shallow bowls and set aside. Slice the chicken breast lengthwise into tenders – one breast creates 4-5 tenders.
  3. Dip each tender in the yogurt then the crackers crumb and shake off any excess. Place each piece on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and repeat until all of the tenders have been coated.Cheddar Bunny Chicken Tender Recipe

To make the “pbj sushi” you will need:

  • Wheat Bread
  • Grape Jelly
  • Peanut Butter

Start by cutting the crusts off the bread and flattening each slice with a rolling pin. Then, use a knife to spread peanut butter and jelly on each slice. Be careful not to use too much– you don’t want to stuff your roll or things will get messy! Use your fingers to roll up the bread, just as if you rolling up sushi, and then slice into four pieces.

Carrot Fries with Lemon Mint Dip

Vegetables and kids? Now, that’s a struggle! Zelda instantly glares at me with her “Not The Veggies” look anytime she thinks some are coming her way. The only way I know how to get some veggies into her diet is to transform them into something else! Knowing how irresistible french fries are, we created these yummy Carrot Fries along with Lemon Mint dip. This light, refreshing dip is one of the best I’ve ever had and makes the perfect dunking addition to these “fries!”

To make the carrot fries you will need:

  • Eggs
  • Panko bread crumbs
  • Long carrot sticks
  • Salt and pepper

For the dip, you will need:

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup freshly chopped mint
  • 1½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions for Carrot Fries with Lemon Mint Dip:

  1. Start by mixing all of the dip ingredients together in a bowl until well blended, then cover and let the drip chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Peel your carrots and then cut them down to your desired “fry” size.
  4. Then, separate your egg yolks from the egg whites, keeping the whites in a medium bowl.
  5. In another bowl, pour in your panko.
  6. Start your coating process by dipping the carrots in the egg whites, coating them in panko, and finally, placing them on the baking sheet.
  7. Bake your fries in the over for 20-30 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and crispy.
