World Eats: Fun and eco-friendly snacks for little Earth lovers

Let’s inspire our little ones to become Earth heroes, one yummy bite at a time

04 Jun 2024

It's World Environment Day on June 5, and what better way to celebrate than with delicious snacks that are good for the Earth and even better for little taste buds? Encourage your little ones to get creative and explore new ways to reduce waste and embrace sustainable practices.

But our mission goes beyond a single day – it's about fostering eco-conscious habits that start in the kitchen. Together, we can inspire #GenerationRestoration and grow a love for our land, one delicious bite at a time!

 Here are some fun and easy ideas to get you started:

Cookie crumble milkshake

Forget throwing away those leftover cookie crumbs! This recipe gives them a starring role in a creamy and decadent cookie crumble milkshake. Layer crumbled cookies (chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin – the choice is yours!) with creamy milk and ice cream forming a blend. Get creative with the toppings- Add a dollop of whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate syrup or marshmallows.

No-bake apple pie

Instead of discarding the apple cores, use them as the star ingredient. Roughly chop the cores and simmer them in water and a cinnamon stick for 20 minutes. Strain the liquid (apple stock) and discard the cores. Use this apple stock in the filling for an extra layer of apple flavor and a zero-waste approach. Let the thickened apple pie mixture cool slightly, then pour into the crust. Top with nuts (optional), refrigerate for at least 2 hours, and enjoy cold with whipped cream for a delicious and eco-friendly no-bake apple pie.

Skip the disposable serving bowls and use leftover papdi shells (fried lentil wafers) as edible containers. Fill them with a vibrant rainbow of chopped vegetables like red bell peppers, orange carrots, green peas, and purple cabbage. To minimize waste, use leftover vegetable scraps instead of buying new ones. Drizzle with a creamy Godrej Jersey rich curd  for a punch, and sprinkle with a touch of leftover green chutney to add a burst of flavor.

Mango lassi popsicles with a swirl

Blend creamy Godrej Jersey fruit yoghurt with leftover mangoes and a touch of honey for a refreshing and vibrantly lassi base. Pour the mixture into popsicle moulds and freeze for a few hours. Once frozen, dip the tops of the popsicles in melted white chocolate (optional) and sprinkle with chopped pistachios for an elegant treat.
