From the whole team here at Sprout Organic, we want to wish you and your family a very Happy Easter! With the supermarket shelves stacked with colourful, creative chocolate treats, we’re sure your little ones’ excitement levels are running high - as are their requests for some extra sweets at this time of year!
We know - while it's our mission to provide children and parents with everyday nutrition that's healthy and wholesome, it's a stretch to think that our little Sprouts' minds are on anything but chocolate at the moment (in fact, that goes for us too!).
So, we’ve put together some quick, easy and healthy recipes that keep in spirit with the season. These tasty treats can all be prepared in 10 - 20 minutes, using mostly everyday ingredients, and are sure to satisfy your little one’s sweet tooth. Plus, you can tweak any one of these recipes to be suitable for any allergies or preferences.
The star of the show is our Junior Plant Protein Shake! Packed with the goodness of fruits, vegetables and added superfoods, our protein powder for kids provides an all-in-one nutritional boost to each mouthful of these delicious treats.
Plus, our ENTIRE chocolate range is 20% OFF for Easter! Stock up on our Junior Plant Protein Shake today and save. But hurry - offer ends midnight Monday, April 18th.
Without further ado, let's get into the recipes!
Easy to make with just a handful of ingredients, these tasty chocolate chia puddings are complemented by the abundance of fibre, protein and healthy fats. It’s a snack that will leave your little ones feeling full and energised for a day of play over the Easter long weekend.
Beginning with two mason jars of your preferred plant milk, all you need to complete these wonderful snacks are some chia seeds, honey (or your preferred sweetener), and a half scoop of Junior Protein for each jar. You can also leave out the sweetener if you prefer to sweeten it only with toppings like fresh or dried fruit or vegan chocolate chips.
For this one, it's all about the ratio! Feel free to experiment to find which ratio your kids prefer, but the ratio we find works best is 2 tablespoons of chia seeds for every half cup of plant milk.
For a bonus serving of their daily vitamins and minerals, as well as the delicious flavour of chocolatey goodness, add a half-scoop of Junior Plant Protein Shake to your preferred plant milk before adding chia seeds.
These wonderfully fluffy protein pancakes are incredibly easy to make and enjoy time and time again. A true 1 bowl recipe, all you need is some mashed banana and a handful of pantry staples!
This type of recipe is a classic for using up those overripe, uneaten bananas. Using just a handful of ingredients, they are nutritious and delicious and freeze well for anyone whose eyes were too big for their belly!
Our tip: Serve with coconut yogurt for an extra kick of probiotics to the complete plant proteins of our Junior Plant Protein Shake!
This mouth-watering small-batch recipe requires only one bowl and is mixable with a whisk or spoon.
Your little sprout will be none the wiser that their daily nutrient needs are being satisfied with every bite of this moist, chocolatey treat! Bear in mind that you’ll only need to add the batter moulds until they’re HALF full as they fluff up and rise to the top. Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. That’s it!
If you have any leftovers, they can be stored and refrigerated for about 5 days in a covered container, or simply on a plate covered with cling wrap. These can also be frozen for up to 2 months to be enjoyed at a later date. Simply thaw at room temperature and enjoy.
We hope your long weekend is full of love and laughter with friends and family! If you try any of these recipes, be sure to share them with us @sproutorganic!

It’s industry regulation in Australia to present the following information about breastfeeding before you can enter our site.
The following statements may cause emotional distress for some parents, so it’s important for us to reiterate that this is an operational requirement. We know you are doing the best you can and are making decisions that are right for you and your baby.
If you are able, breastfeeding provides the optimal balance of nutrition for your baby. A healthy diet is important during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. If you make the decision not to breastfeed, we recommend you seek advice from your GP or health professional. Should you need an alternative form of nourishment to breastmilk, we recommend considering the social and financial implications. Introducing formula feeding can impact your breastmilk supply and is difficult to re-establish. Should you decide to use a breast milk alternative, please take care to use the formula as directed.
We support your choices and your feeding journey - whatever that may be. We understand breastfeeding isn’t always possible, so please click "I Understand" to confirm your understanding that Sprout is supplying the information contained on this website for informational or educational purposes and should not be substituted for medical advice.
You’re doing an amazing job.
Love, team Sprout
