Unless your kids have been living under a rock, we're willing to bet that they are obsessed with Disney's Frozen. At Townleygirl, we know what your kids love, and we want to help you provide it. From our Frozen hair accessory set to our Frozen pastel-perfect 18-piece non-toxic peelable nail polish set, we provide fun and safe ways for your little ones to enjoy the movie they love. We believe that the Frozen characters can provide fun beyond dress-up and playtime. For instance, how about starting your little Elsa, Anna, or Olaf’s day off right (in a fun and healthy way) by trying an easy school morning Frozen-inspired breakfast?
No-Bake Nut Butter Protein Snowballs
Bite-sized healthy breakfast snacks that look like snow and taste like a treat? Yes please! In a mixing bowl, combine a half cup of your choice of nut butter, a quarter cup of vanilla protein powder, two-thirds cup of quick oats, and a tablespoon of honey. Once your ingredients are well mixed, take clean hands and roll your mixture into nine or ten bite-sized spheres. Lay out a handful of shredded coconut on your baking or cutting board, and roll each ball until it is covered with “snow.” Serve slightly chilled or at cool room temperature.
Banana Olaf Skewers
Even the fussiest of morning eaters will give this cute option a try. Slice a peeled banana into several pieces that are about a half-inch thick. Lay three pieces down next to each other. Next, take a long toothpick or a shish kabob skewer, and—approaching from the side—skewer all three pieces together. Done right, they will look like the three main snowball segments of Olaf the snowman. Use pretzel sticks for the arms, blobs of nut butter for the eyes and buttons, and a shred of real carrot for the nose.
Anna’s Toasted Lingonberry Jam Snowflakes
No Scandinavian princess’s breakfast is complete without a touch of lingonberry—the unofficial favorite fruit of the Nordic countries. For this popular breakfast treat, toast slices of your favorite wholegrain bread, spread them lightly with your favorite lingonberry jam (now available at most grocery store chains, or at your local Ikea), and cut them into shapes with a snowflake-shaped cookie cutter. Top each snowflake with a dollop of yogurt for an icy-looking healthy treat.
Elsa’s Braided Cinnamon Sticks
To really impress your little princess, try this special recipe. It is perfect for a birthday morning—or any day when you want your kids to feel special! Preheat the oven before the kids get up. Once they’re getting ready, unroll a can of Pillsbury Crescent dough, or a thawed piecrust sheet, and use a sharp knife to carefully cut it into several half-inch thick strips. Taking three strips of dough at a time, braid them into three or four separate plaits. After laying them on a lightly greased cookie sheet, sprinkle with cinnamon, and bake according to the package instructions. Serve with a side of applesauce for healthy dipping.
