Kid-licous Almond Date Pineapple Bites
By Empowered Momma J on September 28, 2012
Tasty, moist and made with love these Kid-licious Almond Date Pineapple Bites are a hit with kids and adults alike.
You know something is a hit when you can take them to a kids party and the kids actually eat them without saying "Yuck" or worse, gives you the obvious "I don't like this" cough and spits it out.
Anyone with kids knows that if a kid doesn't like something you will know and so will everyone else.
A year long treat that is kid approved...Bonus.
I suggest having a good food processor to mix all the ingredients or at least one that the dates won't kill. A good processor will have all the ingredients mixed for you in no time.
Now for the good stuff, the recipe. Here ya go.
A few of the health benefits rolled into one.
Dates: High in natural fibres so you may want to limit the amount you eat as they are helpful to those suffering constipation. Good source of Vitamin A, beta-carotene, iron and potassium to name a few.
Pineapple: Source for many vitamins and minerals such as Manganese, Vitamin C and B1. It is also known to help with joint pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
Almonds: Known to reduce LDL, high in monounsaturated fats (the good fat), Vitamin E, magnesium and potassium to list a few of the benefits from almonds.
I'd love to hear any ideas on more proven simple and nutritious kid-licious treats.
