A snack for my vegan baby
There are a lot of vegan mums that read my italian blog, so I was asked to post a recipe for our little angels too! I posted this quick sweet cream because it's made of nuts and dry fruits. They are very important for vegan kids and I think that this type of food is sometimes neglected. I soak the dry fruits in water overnight and then I blend it into a cream with a food processor.
This time I have used dry apricots, almonds and sesame seeds.
It is up to you to mix the fruit and make different combinations. You could use only one type of fruit (apricots, plums, figs, dates) or add some hazelnuts, walnuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds...) Presoak and blend thoroughly. It's a rich source of vitamins, minerals, fat, protein, sugars. Vegan kids need it to grow!
Bubu is 14 month old and wants to eat on his own, but he's no good! :)
