tropical mini muffins

made using kids nudie nothing but tropical juice

Looking for new and healthy back to school recipes for the kids’ lunchboxes?! These mini muffins will go down a treat!
This recipe combines fresh banana and yogurt (two things that kids love already!) with our kids nudie nothing but tropical juice (make that three things that kids love already!), to bring you a super healthy lunchbox snack your kids will gobble up!

Bananas have a naturally sweet and delicious taste… With the added bonus of Vitamin B6 and magnesium. What are these good for? Vitamin B6 is essential for kids’ metabolism, immune system and brain development, whilst magnesium has the ability to relax the mind and body, helping kids to (hopefully) feel more zen-like. It also helps to maintain blood sugar levels… And you know what that means – no crazy sugar spikes (& no frustrated mum or dad!). These mini muffins are quick and easy to prepare and don’t contain added nasties!
