Today, I am sharing what I call the ᴘᴇʀғᴇᴄᴛ ɪᴍᴍᴜɴɪᴛʏ ᴀɴᴅ ᴅɪɢᴇsᴛɪᴏɴ ʙᴏᴏsᴛᴇʀ for kids!!
Adults too honestly! Kritu gets constipated easily and her pediatrician says it’s quite common in children…
I did a lot of research and brought together this recipe using green veggies and Indian spices like ajwain and jeera in addition to using prunes as digestive relief, and due to the current times where immunity is so important, I have added additional stuff like haldi and honey.
So the recipe (which quite versatile honestly) is as follows –
👉🏼 Ⓘⓝⓖⓡⓔⓓⓘⓔⓝⓣⓢ (for making 1 tray of ice cubes, approximately 10 cubes)
🌟 Jeera/Cumin Seeds – 1 tablespoon
🌟 Ajwain/Carom Seeds – 1 tablespoon
🌟 Honey – 1.5 tablespoon
🌟 Haldi/Turmeric – 1 tablespoon
🌟 Sauf/Fennel Seeds – 1 tablespoon
🌟 Tulsi Powder – 1 tablespoon (can be skipped)
🌟 Prunes – 8
🌟 Veggies: Definitely use Spinach 🌿 Broccoli 🥦 Peas and Carrots 🥕 Green Beans as they are the perfect fiber to add and here’s additionally what else you can add to up the nutrient content – Beets, Kale, Sweet Potatoes 🍠 – depending on the quantity you are making a cup of each would be good.
🌟 In a large pot add all the ingredients and water (do not have to sauté anything) and bring to boil. Let it boil on medium flame for 15 minutes so that everything is well cooked. Let it cool and then in a mixer grinder pulse it into a thick paste. You can freeze these in either ice trays or silicone molds to use as you go!
🌟 Take as many cubes as you need out of the freezer and pop it in the microwave to thaw. Add them to literally anything – rice (makes haryali rice), pasta (makes the pasta sauce more nutritious), dal/lentils (awesome here too!) – omelettes 🍳 quesadillas (use as sauce inside) – the options are really endless.
Hope this helps you out to add more nutrition to your little one’s diet!!
Until next time, stay healthy!!
