If you can guess the 3 ingredients in the frosting without looking, you can come have one 😉

Hint: There’s no refined sugar, dairy, gluten or eggs in the cupcakes or the frosting!

*Technically this a pumpkin muffin recipe, from the 50 page digital recipe book I give all my health coaching clients and group members 💕But put a little frosting on there, and you can call anything a cupcake 😂🤣😂

I’m a little excited because I feel like this means fall is here!! 🍁But we are still picking veggies from the garden too 😂🍅🥒 What are we going to do with all these tomatoes?! I’ve made sauce and salsa so far, but I keep things that are simple and refuse to peeling tomatoes lol!

Homemade Kids’ Squeeze Pouches

Healthier Homemade Kids Squeeze Pouches...only 4 ingredients!

I LOVE the convenience of the little fruit & veggie pouches they make for kids these days! You can’t beat the portability of throwing one in your purse/diaper bag, OR the ability to get some extra veggies in their diet : )

But even on sale, they are EXPENSIVE! And if you check out the nutrition label they typically have NO nutritional value (fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, etc.)  So you’re paying a pretty penny for nothing!

I found these cool reusable pouches online that let you make them at home for much cheaper, with much healthier outcome!
-Hidden ziplock-style opening at the bottom for refilling
-Freezer safe (so you can pop them out and defrost as needed)
-Dishwasher safe

This is my favorite recipe, it requires NO COOKING!
1 24oz jar unsweetened applesauce
1 cup chopped raw butternut squash or sweet potato
1 cup spinach
1 tsp cinnamon

Add the ingredients (in order) into a high speed blender; blend until pureed, then fill the pouches and store them in the freezer if you don’t go through them all within a few days.

What’s your child’s favorite pouch type/flavor??
