Fun with Food
In our household, food isn't just about satisfying hunger—it's an opportunity to explore the amazing benefits that different ingredients bring to our bodies. Now, I must admit, I tend to get carried away with my nutrition talk, earning me a few (ha!) playful eye-rolls from my family (oops!).
But guess what? My young culinary genius, Bentley, surprised us all with his own creative recipe that's perfect for summer!
Bentley's Summer Berry Mango Protein Popsicles are truly epic in every way.
They combine the refreshing flavours of berries and mango while providing a boost of protein.
Here's how to whip them up:
1 cup Frozen Blueberries
1 cup Frozen Strawberries
1 cup Frozen Mango
1 cup Frozen Raspberries
4 tbsp Raw Honey
4 tbsp Lemon Juice
4 tbsp Vanilla Protein Powder
Let's kick things off by firing up the food processor! Toss in the blueberries and blend them with 1 tbsp of honey, 1 tsp of protein powder, and 1 tsp of lemon juice. Give it a whirl until you achieve a smooth and luscious puree.
Next, grab your popsicle molds and pour the blueberry puree into the bottom. Pop them in the freezer while we work on the next layer.
Rinse off the food processor (or simply give it a quick rinse—you know, the friendly version of washing up!).
Now, repeat the process with the strawberries, mango, and raspberries, blending each fruit with 1 tbsp of honey, 1 tsp of protein powder, and 1 tsp of lemon juice. Layer each fruity puree onto the previous one in the popsicle molds.
Time to insert the popsicle sticks and give your creations a cozy spot in the freezer. Let them chill for at least 4 hours until they're rock-solid and ready to enjoy.
Finally, take a moment to appreciate your masterpiece and savor each lick of these refreshing and nutritious popsicles!
Nutritional Benefits and Support for ADHD Symptoms
Now, let's delve into the additional benefits of Bentley's Summer Berry Mango Protein Popsicles, particularly for those seeking support with ADHD symptoms. Incorporating fruits like blueberries, strawberries, mangoes, and raspberries into your diet may have potential benefits for managing ADHD symptoms.
1. Blueberries: Cognitive Function and Focus
These tiny powerhouses are packed with antioxidants, specifically flavonoids, which have been linked to improved cognitive function and focus.
Blueberries may also help alleviate symptoms associated with ADHD, such as inattention and hyperactivity.
2. Strawberries: Brain Health and Vitamin C
Not only are strawberries a delicious treat, but they also offer a significant amount of vitamin C—an essential nutrient for brain health. Vitamin C plays a crucial role in neurotransmitter production and can help support cognitive function and attention.
3. Raspberries: Cognitive Function and Reduced Inflammation
Packed with antioxidants, raspberries provide a range of health benefits. The polyphenols found in raspberries have been shown to support brain health by enhancing cognitive function and reducing inflammation, potentially aiding in managing ADHD symptoms.
4. Mangoes: Brain Development and Neurotransmitter Regulation
This tropical fruit is not only juicy and flavourful but also a great source of vitamins, minerals, and fibre. Mangoes contain vitamin B6, which plays a vital role in brain development and neurotransmitter regulation.
Adequate levels of vitamin B6 have been associated with improved attention and focus.
