I began this school year in August with a new list of creative snack ideas. It’s now November, and those ideas as now old news. The kids are just as tired of eating them as I am of making them, I think. I’ve discovered over the years that sometimes kids just need a fun name or theme to make something new again. For these Galactic Fruit and Pancake Sandwiches with a Green Galaxy Smoothie, we are embracing two of my kids’ favorite things: space and the color green!
My kids have no trouble eating yogurt and fruit, and this is a tasty way to combine the two. I’m also sharing my kids’ favorite smoothie recipe. It’s also my favorite smoothie to give to them because it sneaks in something that I can’t get them to eat on its own: spinach!
Let’s start with the sandwiches first!
- (2) Kellogg’s® Eggo® Star Wars Galaxy Adventure™ Buttermilk Pancakes
- (2) Kiwi
- (1) cup organic yogurt
- Sliced strawberries
- Optional: honey
Peel the skin from both of the kiwi. Place the kiwi, 1/2 cup of the yogurt, and optional dash of honey in the blender. Blend until smooth.
Remove from the blender and pour into a mixing bowl. Add the other 1/2 cup of yogurt. Mix carefully.
Splitting the yogurt in this way keeps it from becoming too thin in the blender.
Prepare the two Kellogg’s® Eggo® Star Wars Galaxy Adventure™ Buttermilk Pancakes according to the package directions.
Turn one so that the design is on the bottom. Spread the kiwi yogurt mixture on the Kellogg’s® Eggo® Star Wars Galaxy Adventure™ Buttermilk Pancake.
Add the sliced strawberries.
Place the remaining Kellogg’s® Eggo® Star Wars Galaxy Adventure™ Buttermilk Pancake on top. Leave whole or cut into slices for serving.
Green Galaxy Smoothie
I make this one in large batches because this smoothie is a great mid-day recharge for me, too!
- (1) frozen banana
- (1.5) cups fresh pineapple
- (1) cup orange juice
- (1) cup spinach
Place all ingredients in a blender and combine until smooth. Blend until the spinach pieces are completely incorporated.
