Synbiotic in food – recipes for children

Do you have difficulties getting your children to take Synbiotic? Here are several suggestions for how to take Synbiotic with food. The recipes were developed in connection with a research study on motivating children and young people to eat Synbiotic. When you have mixed Synbiotic with food, it must be eaten immediately – food with Synbiotic must not be stored or saved. All recipes are for 1 serving.

Recipes

  

Vitamin Boost

250 ml of water  

100 ml of frozen berries – e.g. strawberries/raspberries/blueberries or a mixture

You can also add a little honey or vanilla powder for sweetness 

 

How to make it

1. Mix the frozen berries with water and optionally a drop of honey for a little extra sweetness

2. Mix in the Synbiotic – the consistency will resemble a fruit sauce

3. Serve before breakfast (when your child is hungry)

Top tip – if your child is sensitive to raspberry/strawberry seeds, try straining them out of the drink before mixing in the Synbiotics. If not – keep the seeds as they provide good fibre.  

 

coconut

Chocolate and coconut balls  

200 ml organic oats  

1 pinch of vanilla powder

8 fresh soft dates

1 tbsp cacao powder

3 tbsp raw coconut oil

1 pinch of sea salt

1 tbsp water

Raw honey to make it even sweeter if needed (optional)

Shredded coconut (topping)

 

How to

1. Remove the seeds on all dates (if any). If the dates are a bit dry and hard just soak them 30-45 min or until soft in a bit of water.

2. Mix all the ingredients (except for the shredded coconut) in a food processor for a few minutes until  soft texture.

3. Roll one ball to check if the texture is holding and is easy to form. If the mix is not binding together add a bit more water until you can form a ball with the mix.

4. You can store this mix for up to 5-6 days in an airtight container (use glass or stainless steel – don’t use plastic). Prepare only the serving amount when adding the Synbiotics. See below for next step.

 

To prepare one serving with Synbiotics (makes 1 large or 2 medium size balls). 

3 tbsp prepared cacao ball mix  

½ tbsp water or add more if needed

1 portion of Synbiotic15  

 

1. Mix everything with a spoon and if the consistency is too dense just add a bit more water until you have the right consistency to form a ball.

2. Roll 1 large or 2 smaller balls and cover in shredded coconut (or other topping that the child prefers).

3. Serve immediately.

 

mud cake

Sticky chocolate cake mix

Option 1. 

1 banana, mature and soft

1-2 soft dates

How to

1. Mix the banana, date and vanilla powder in a blender until consistency is smooth.

2. Put into a serving bowl and add 1 serving of Synbiotic15.

3. If needed add a bit of water to make the consistency a bit looser. The dates will make this version a bit more goijy and sweeter than option 2.

4. Serve immediately

 

Option 2. (no food processor needed)

1 small or medium banana, mature

½ -1 tsp cacao

1 pinch vanilla powder

1 portion of Synbiotic15

2. Add all other ingredients and serve immediately.

 

Blueberry Sauce

150 ml of water  

1 cup frozen blueberries  

You can also add a little honey or vanilla powder for sweetness 

 

How to make it

1. Mix the frozen blueberries with water and optionally a drop of honey for a little extra sweetness  

2. Mix in the Synbiotic  

3. Serve immediately like blueberry sauce with your favourite toppings, such as nuts and fresh berries

 

The King of Milkshakes

 

Berry Shake

150 ml of soya or oat milk (without added sugar)  

150 ml of ice  

100 ml frozen berries – strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or a mixture  

½-1 tsp of honey or a little vanilla powder to taste 

 

Banana & Chocolate Shake

150 ml of soya or oat milk (without added sugar)  

150 ml of ice  

1 small banana, preferably frozen

1 teaspoon of cocoa powder 

Optionally ½ – 1 tsp honey for extra sweetness or a little vanilla powder 

 

 How to make it

1. Mix all the ingredients in a blender  

2. Add Synbiotics  

Tip: adapt portion sizes to age and how much the child will drink, if it’s too big a portion, reduce it before mixing in the Synbiotics. It’s important that the child gets the full amount of Synbiotics.  

 

The Juice Trick

250 ml sugar-free cold juice/cordial

 

1. Add Synbiotic and mix well

2. Serve immediately

 

The Ice Cream Stash

1 frozen banana (slightly unripe) 

50-100 ml coconut milk or oat milk, unsweetened  

0.5 tsp Ceylon cinnamon  

 

How to make it

1. Slice the banana and freeze overnight

2. Mix the banana, synbiotic, cinnamon and half of the milk substitute in a blender with blades

3. Add more liquid – a little at a time until the ice cream has a good consistency. If you use too much milk, it will turn into a milkshake

4. Eat the ice cream immediately

Top tip – try replacing the cinnamon with another flavouring such as cocoa, unsweetened chocolate chips or cacao nibs.  

 

Jam as a Silver Lining

3-5 fresh organic strawberries (or frozen strawberries that have been thawed)
Honey (optional)
1 dose pack of Synbiotic

 

How to make it

1. Mash the strawberries with a fork

2. Add honey for sweetness (optional)

3. Add a dose of Synbiotic and mix together – this will make the consistency like jam

4. Serve as a side dish with/on/in any breakfast or snack. (NOTE: Don’t put the jam on hot foods, as the bacteria cannot withstand high temperatures. Room temperature, cold or frozen foods are fine)

 

 

Always remember these recipes are just ideas and meant to give inspiration on how to serve Synbiotics to children. Especially those that can be a bit picky with textures and flavours. Work with your child and ask how they like the snack and tweak the recipes so it works for your child. Use and add natural sweeteners like maple syrup, honey or dates if needed.

Please share with us other creative ways your child likes to take his or her daily dose of Synbiotics so we can add more tips and share this with other families.
