Cooking with Kids - Summer Milkshake Iceblock Milk

My little ones LOVE to be let loose 'all by themselves' in the kitchen. 
At age 4 and 6 they really are capable, but I still keep a watchful eye...
Sharp knives, balancing on chairs and electricity all play their part in keeping this Mama nearby.

Today we made milkshakes.

Little Pipkin's Watermelon / Strawberry Mix
1/8th small watermelon (seeded), 250g punnet strawberries, 2T natural yoghurt, 1/4 cup milk, 1t maple syrup (optional - take a taste test! )
Blend until smooth.

Mr Turtle's Mango / Banana mix
1 mango, 2 bananas, 2T sheeps yoghurt, 1/4 cup goat's milk.
Blend until smooth!

Drink as much as you can, then freeze the leftovers to make iceblocks, for future enjoyment on hot summer afternoons...
