VEGETABLE POCKETS AND HOMEMADE APPLE YOGURT

Vegetable Pockets with Secret taste IMG_2024 and Home made Apple Yogurt.

Last week I prepared these Vegetable pockets along with my Kids as they want  to help in the Kitchen and prepare their own Lunch. . It was fun and interesting for them to grab vegetables from fridge, using Measuring cups and spoons and I too enjoyed teaching them how to prepare their  own Lunch . Cooking together helps kids to explore about foods and let them make their own choices. it is a great way to involve and teach kids some basic Cooking. They will feel proud to eat their own cooked food. It is a simple recipe ; all you have to do is prepare a Dough with Wheat flour, milk, Oil, salt and water. Gather your Vegetables, Boil the Potatoes and prepare tasty filling with Spices. I hid a secret Sauce in the Veggie Pockets ( You can prepare this Sauce at home or use Store Bought) which made them even tastier.

To go along with Vegetable Pockets I prepared a Simple Dessert with Yogurt and Apples. To make Yogurt tastier I added grated apples , nut Powder and so on . I shared the recipe . Kids are going to love this fancy fruit yogurt  dessert and surprisingly it will be a decadent dessert for everyone in the family and for those who don’t like to eat Plain Yogurt. Sprinkle some Cinnamon sugar and it will taste like something special in this yogurt dessert.
