Awhile ago, during the summer (those days seem far away!), I had the opportunity to join Katherine Lee of about.com in her kitchen for a fun afternoon of cooking and filming!
Katherine has a wonderful parenting blog on about.com, and she invited me to contribute some healthy dessert ideas for kids. We made everything in her kitchen and the lovely Meredith filmed us. It was a blast and such a different experience from what I am usually doing during the day in my studio! She treated us to a fabulous sushi lunch, and we munched on the desserts we made throughout the day. 🙂
My favorite Double Chocolate Zucchini, Banana Bread with Secret Ingredient is one of the recipes featured.
Chocolate version seen here in the video.
And last, but not least: Chocolate, Banana, Spinach Smoothie
This the one video I never want Jamie to see, because he drinks this all the time! It is a great after school snack. The spinach has absolutely no flavor in the smoothie, and he has no idea I sneak it in. I sometimes use frozen spinach which adds to the creaminess of the smoothie along with the frozen banana!
Video and recipe are here.
Hope you enjoy these recipes — they are all really easy to make and are pretty healthy considering they are desserts!

Choc Chip Uru
The sprinkling of chocolate chips was a great idea…
Hi Melissa! Congrats on what sounds like a very fun and exciting studio opportunity! I remember many of your featured healthy desserts. 🙂 It’s funny you mention the spinach bc I totally agree about the taste. You can’t tell! I’ve been on a green smoothie kick the past month and I basically add spinach to every smooth but I can’t taste it. Although the smoothie turns green. Haha. But choco color hiding the green – now that’s super sneaky. 🙂 Love it! I will need to remember this when my own starts drinking choco. 🙂
This is such a great post! Thank you, I love the healthy and still very tasty recipes!
This post comes in good time…we are trying to cut back on overly sweet, nutritionally deficient desserts. Great ideas here..will have to try the spinach in smoothie

Awesome post man! It’s always tricky to find that balance between healthy desserts that are still tasty at the same time. There’s a website called Matts Backpack which I always like to check out when I’m looking for these kinds of healthy and tasty dessert recipes. I love how they’re trying to get everyone involved and get people to submit their own recipes to the blog!
