Superfood Easter Eggs for Kids

Superfood Easter Eggs for Kids 

Let’s be real, Easter can be a challenging time for parents surrounded by chocolate and sweets. Many of them contain unhealthy food dyes, additives and LOADS of sugar.

These little guys are bright, cheerful and easily made with your kids using natural superfoods in place of chemical dyes. 

They are very simple and suitable for even the smallest child!

I’m guessing if you're here you may like a smoothie or two and have some superfood powders waiting in the pantry as well! 

SUPERFOOD EASTER EGGS 

TIME: 10 minutes + 20 minutes refrigeration 

Makes: 36 

Difficulty: Easy 

INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted 

2 tablespoons Almond Milk or milk of choice 

1 tablespoon of Liquid sweeter of choice, Maple Syrup, Raw Honey (over 12 months) or Rice Malt Syrup etc. 

2 cups Shredded Coconut 

1/8-1/4 teaspoon of Superfoods of choice.

Yellow: Ground Turmeric

Pink: Beetroot Powder 

Green: Wheatgrass powder, Spirulina, Matcha* etc. 

METHOD

In your Vitamix or high speed blender, add the first four ingredients in the order listed. 

Pulse 8-10 times until mixtures holds together, scraping down the sides of the blender once or twice if necessary. 

Divide mixture evenly between 3 small bowls. 

Colour each bowl using your superfoods of choice, using between 1/8-1/4 of a teaspoon to reach desired colour. 

Mix powder through each batch with a spoon or spatula until well incorporated and colourful. 

Roll teaspoon size balls of mixture into little ovals or desired shapes. (This is a great place for the kids to get hands on!)

Refrigerate eggs for 20 minutes until firm. 

Eggs will keep in an air tight container in the fridge for one week. 

Enjoy! 

NOTES:

If you have any good quality essential oils in your pantry (such as doterra) you can use a drop or two of these in each batch as well. I used Lemon, Peppermint and Orange in mine! It might be a good idea to do a quick tester to be sure your kids like this if they haven't had it before. 

Matcha containes caffeine and in a full serve quantity is not suitable for children. Given the small amount required it is safe to use here.
