Toddler Approved Carrot Spice Milkshake
Finding ways to sneak healthy things into your toddlers diets can be challenging. My kids need to increase their protein and vegetable intake. A super easy and fun way to get both into their diets is by using FlapJacked Baking Mixes in a milkshake. This milkshake has a really smooth and soft taste. It does not give off a heavy “carrot” feel. I honestly get more of a pumpkin spice vibe. This is probably due to the spices involved.
In a blender mix the following
- 1-2 tablespoons of FlapJacked Carrot Spice Baking Mix
- 1 cup of vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 cup of milk
Blend for as short of a period as possible. Try pulsing it for 15 to 25 seconds. This way you keep it cold and in a creamy consistency. If you blend too long the ice cream will warm up and turn more into a soup. Try adding the ice cream in first, then sprinkle the Carrot Spice powder around on top of the ice cream. If the powder mix sticks to places you don’t think the blender will get it mixed, you now can use the milk to help move it along to the bottom of the blender. Top your milkshake with sprinkles. Because what toddler can resist the excitement of seeing them in their treat?!
