Fun Food Friday- Kid Friendly Ideas- Pizza Crescent Rolls & Breakfast Smoothie

Feeding a 2 year old is always so much fun- not! :) Kids are funny, at least my 2 year old is.  One day he will love something, the next day he doesn't want anything to do with that dish.  So it's nice to have a few things I know he will like every time.  So I thought this week I'd share 2 of those things- pizza crescent rolls and smoothies.

Pizza Crescent Rolls
Ingredients: Can of Crescent Rolls, Mozzarella Cheese, Mini-Pepperonis (I used Turkey), Italian Seasoning, Butter, Grated Parmesan Cheese, Pizza Sauce

Shred the cheese

Open the can of crescent rolls and separate the rolls

Top the rolls with cheese...

Sprinkle with Italian Seasoning...

Add the mini-pepperonis

Roll up the rolls

Place on a baking sheet or a pizza stone works great too

Melt some butter...

and brush over rolls

Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese

Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes

Put on a plate for your little person :)

Don't forget the pizza sauce to dip it in
(Micah is seriously a fan of anything he gets to dip :))

And watch the roll disappear

 This is one satisfied kid
Breakfast Smoothies
The great thing about smoothies is you can make them however you want them.  You can use whatever kind of fruit you like and whatever flavor yogurt you want and whatever kind of juice you want.  Here is how Micah and I prefer our smoothies:
Ingredients: Frozen Strawberries, Peach Yogurt, Vanilla Yogurt, Orange Juice

To a blender add some frozen strawberries.  I like to use frozen fruit because then you don't need to add ice.  I have used fresh strawberries and ice but I just didn't like it as much, so I just stick with frozen strawberries

Add a container of yogurt, I prefer peach...

And some vanilla yogurt...

And some orange juice

Stir it around so the strawberries get coated with orange juice.  I then let it sit for about 5 minutes so the strawberries get softer and blend really well.

Blend until it's nice and smooth

One for Micah...

One for Mommy

 And there you go, breakfast in a cup :)

Another great thing about smoothies for breakfast, Micah doesn't need to sit in his high chair to eat it so all three boys can eat at the same time, making for happy boys and a happy mommy!
Pizza Crescent Rolls
1 can Crescent Rolls
Mozzarella Cheese
Italian Seasoning
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
Grated Parmesan Cheese

Separate out the crescent rolls and lay out on the counter.  Top with cheese, Italian Seasoning, and mini-pepperonis.  Roll up the rolls.  Brush with melted butter and top with parmesan cheese.  Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.  Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.

Breakfast Smoothies
Frozen Strawberries
4-6 ounce peach yogurt (or whatever flavor you want)
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt

Place all ingredients in a blender.  Let it sit for 5 minutes to soften the frozen fruit.  Blend until smooth.
