How about a healthy spin on a strawberry milkshake

If you’re short on time, cookie cutters are great to use to cut fruit or bread. The emoji fruit  is all the craze! <3

There’s also the good ol’ Sharpie pen to draw on bananas, applesauce containers, oranges,  string cheese, etc. 

Rather than chocolate dipped strawberries, create a beautiful display using Greek yogurt and natural food coloring for yogurt dipped ombre strawberries

To end on a healthier, dessert note, try out these cocoa energy balls :

2 cups rolled oats

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup Nutella

1/2 cup goji berries

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/8 cup mini chocolate chips

 

Mix, roll into balls and  freeze.
