Kids can help with most of the steps for this heart-themed breakfast, either to enjoy themselves, or to serve as a treat to Mom or Dad!
For the Red Berry Smoothie, have your child help measure out 1/2 cup vanilla non-dairy yogurt (we used coconut), 1 cup frozen raspberries, 1 cup frozen strawberries, and 1 cup almond milk, and add to a blender.
Help your child slice a banana with a toddler-safe knife – great practice for little hands! Add the banana to the blender, and gave it a whirl.
To make the Heart Toast, press a heart-shaped cookie cutter into a piece of bread, and then toast it lightly (adults only for the latter step!).
Have your child help spread on a thin layer of vegan cream cheese, followed by a dollop of red jam.
Note: For a savory version, top the cream cheese with a slice of your favorite vegan deli meat instead.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
