From a young age, children are in love with sweets and chocolate, there is no stopping them as it’s all they want to eat. They love eating these treats because they’re experiencing new and tasty flavours. So, we have created a list of fun and delicious desserts for your kids to try.
Strawberry Cheesecake Bars
Encouraging children from an early age to eat plenty of fruit is a great thing as it will greatly benefit them later on in life, but it can be difficult teaching some kids to do this as they just don’t like them. However, if you mix the fruit with different flavours it can help the child appreciate the flavour more when it is with something else, especially if it’s a dessert.
It’s always a good starting place to give the child small portions to eat so that they know their limit and don’t go crazy. Which is why making a strawberry cheesecake bar is an ideal dessert for you to make, as it’s small in size, doesn’t take long to create and it tastes delicious too!
In addition to this, you don’t need many ingredients either, so if you’re on a budget this is more than ideal for you and your kids will love tasting a new dessert they haven’t tried before.
- 10oz of Marshmallows
- 4oz of Cream Cheese
- 4 Cups of Toasted Oats
- 1 Cup of Dried Strawberries
- ½ Cup of Yoghurt Chips
Now you have the ingredients – let’s get baking! To begin, simply pour your marshmallows and cream cheese into a bowl and place into a microwave. Keep the bowl in here for 15 second intervals until the ingredients have melted.
Once the mixture has melted, add 4 cups of toasted oats and mix it all in till the oats are covered. Next, add your dried strawberries and yoghurt chips to the bowl and further stir till everything is mixed in nicely.
Gently, pour all the mixture into a tray and make sure it’s spread evenly and it’s surface is flat too. Put this in the fridge and let it set for 2 hours, now it’s nice and chilled, cut them into small pieces for your kids to try and they will have their very own strawberry cheesecake bars. Be warned – it’s guaranteed to give the children a massive sugar rush!
Strawberry Kiwi Yoghurt Lollies
Sweets and chocolate are always a child’s favourite food growing up, but when it’s summer, ice lollies are very popular with kids as they come in a variety of different flavours and they all taste super nice. Lollies have an advantage over chocolate in the sun too, as they don’t drip and melt as much as chocolate can – which saves parents washing up all the time.
There is nothing worse than melted chocolate that’s been spilt onto a white top as it can be a pain to wash out, and it’s very noticeable too. Fortunately, some lollies don’t have this issue, and the one we have for you to try, definitely won’t be making a mess all over your children’s clothes.
A popular fruit amongst kids is a strawberry, as they’re full of flavour and you can mix it with anything. A great combination we would like you to try is a ‘strawberry kiwi yoghurt’ lollie, and at first glance you might think – how is this even possible? But don’t worry, we have it all covered for you.
It’s simpler than you think to make, and it will not take much of your time during the day too. All you will need is a few ingredients and some kitchen tools to make your very own yoghurt lollie, trust us – this is not something you want to miss.
Ingredients & Equipment
- 2 Cups of Strawberries
- 2 Cups of Plain Yoghurt
- 2 Tablespoon of Honey
- 2 Cups of Kiwi
- Lolly Mould
Once you have the ingredients, you’re ready to begin creating our stunning lollies. Firstly, add 1 cup of strawberries, 2 cups of yoghurt and honey into a blender, and blend this till it’s a light pink colour.
Next, pour this mixture into your lolly mould and fill it near to the top, then add your strawberries and kiwi into the mould and push them down using the hand of the lolly mould. Now this is done, put these in the freezer and when they’re finally frozen you can enjoy your unique and tasty lolly.
Kids will love the flavour as it’s something new and exciting for them to try. The texture brings ‘summer vibes’ with it being very fruity, so we recommend you buy the ingredients now because they’re going to be a huge hit this summer.

Mixed Berry Frozen Yoghurt
Yoghurts are a popular grocery children love to have, they’re easy to eat and they go down a treat too. However, as nice as it can be, there isn’t much of a variety of flavours available and some kids can get bored eating the same yoghurt over and over again.
So, to combat this, we have a unique method for you and your kids to try and we guarantee you will love it. When you think of a yoghurt, you think of a light, creamy texture – but what if we said you can create a unique flavour and freeze it to make it become an ice cream? Well you certainly can!
Using our simple method and easy to follow instructions, you can create a frozen yoghurt and it will taste just as great as an ice cream would! You will only need a few items of fruit, a blender and that’s it – easy as that.
Ingredients & Equipment
- 1 Cup of Frozen Blueberries
- 1 Cup of Frozen Strawberries
- 1 Cup of Frozen Raspberries
- 1 Cup of Vanilla Yoghurt
- 3 Tablespoons of Honey
With the ingredients and equipment in place, you are now ready to create a masterpiece. To begin, simply add all of your ingredients into a blender and blend this until all your pieces of fruit have mixed in with the yoghurt, so all you can see is a dark pink texture.
Next, pour the contents into a tray and freeze for 2 hours. Once the yoghurt is frozen, you can dig-into your delicious mixed berry frozen yoghurt. We assure you that you won’t want to miss trying this, as this fabulous yoghurt simply bursts with flavour into your mouth. Your kids are in for a treat with this one, so order those ingredients now so you aren’t missing out.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Frozen Bananas
Next on our list is a guaranteed winner, and we know this because there is chocolate in it! Even though chocolate is delicious on it’s own, some people can find this boring and plain. However, for those who think it’s plain, we have a combination you will be begging to try with chocolate.
Everybody knows sweet and savoury compliments each other incredibly well, so the perfect grocery that will suit chocolate is peanut butter. A large majority of people love chocolate and peanut butter together because they most likely love Reese’s Pieces. But what they probably haven’t tried is melted peanut butter and chocolate and add this onto a banana.
It might seem strange adding such items onto a banana, as this is deemed as ‘healthy’ – but this is quite the opposite. Adding this mixture onto a banana completely transforms the flavour onto a whole new level, and once you’ve tried it you’ll be making this every week throughout summer for all the family to enjoy.
What makes this dessert better than the rest, is that it’s very easy to make and it’s full of incredible flavour. So by following our method, you can create this stunning dessert in no time and you won’t even need to spend much either – which is always a bonus!
