Recipes: The Undomestic Goddess’ Nutrient Cocktail

Forget The Sneaky Chef and Deceptively Delicious (which failed miserably anyway). If you want your kids to get their veggies, this is the way to do it: Frozen Yoghurt Smoothies.

I recently tried the recipe below and I reckon it takes a pretty perceptive palate to taste the carrots and celery. Raw carrots and celery are two veggies I find particularly hard to consume but I’d happily drink this anytime, anywhere. Compared to the recipes from The Sneaky Chef and Deceptively Delicious, I reckon you’ll get in a lot more veggies per serve in a smoothie. Throw in some power fruits and you’ve got a pretty potent nutrient cocktail.

So what’s in it?

  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 1 whole carrot, peel and ends removed
  • 100 grams of blackberries
  • 1 medium orange, peel removed
  • 1 tbsp honey dissolved in a 100ml of hot water and cooled with 8 ice cubes
  • 200 grams of mango yoghurt (I used Emmi)
  • 2 scoops of Bulla Wildberry frozen yogurt

Throw everything into a high power blender, like a Vitamix, and blend it into a liquid. This recipe makes roughly enough for 3 IKEA glass tumblers (plus a little bit more – depending on the size of your fruits and veggies).

And that is how your sneak veggies into your child’s diet…
