Who’s ready for their kids to be back in school? I’ve been going back and forth… On one hand, yes- I want them back in school! On the other hand, I’m just not ready to let go of our lazy mornings and carefree, (mostly) schedule-less days. (6:15 rolls around awfully early.)
I’ve spent the last week trying to ease everyone back into the back to school routine. We’ve been sticking to bedtimes and re-focusing on our educational workbooks and reading. Plus, I’ve been shopping, stocking my freezer and making lists. (I ♥ lists…)
Today, I have a new recipe for Creamy Avocado Dip and a great round up of healthy after school snack ideas for kids to share.
Most of the recipe/ideas are based on healthy, whole foods and quite a few of them are made with Silk Almond, Coconut and Soy Milks. For myself, I eat mostly dairy free and lactose free foods and try to steer my little ones in this direction when I can, especially since I usually join them in their after school snacks. (Plus I think a more plant-based diet is better for everyone.)
I found this Avocado Dip recipe on the Silk website, it’s a little different, but I’m so glad I tried it! I made a few changes to make it more kid friendly and I used the unsweetened Almond Milk. The dip was so creamy with just a hint of something extra.
I paired the dip with DIY baked tortilla chips, and everybody loved it! (Have you ever made your own tortilla chips? Its so easy, you should try it!)
