Cooking With Sophie the “Young Chef”

Sophie decided recently she really wanted a smoothie. Never missing an opportunity to get fruit into this kid, I didn’t hesitate to take her up on this opportunity. She also really wanted to make the smoothie herself. I thought this would be a great chance to try a recipe from a new cookbook, Young Chefs: Cooking Skills and Recipes for Kids by Christina Dymock. Lo and behold, we found the perfect recipe for … Pink Smoothies!

Sophie couldn’t wait to get started. She gathered all of her supplies. She measured out her ingredients.

And then started blending!

And voila … Pink Smoothie!

Young Chefs is a great cookbook for teaching kids how to cook. It is full of easy recipes, colorful pictures and easy-to-follow pages. Christina has lots of fun facts and tips throughout the book. I highly recommend it as a starting place if you want to start cooking with your little ones in the kitchen.

Sophie had so much fun making the smoothie that she insisted on me taking a video of her recreating the experience. (There’s Romeo again!)
