Being a Saban Brand-Bassador means I get to share my love of all the Saban brands with you. Julius Jr is one of those brands that I adore and recently celebrated with my kiddos. You can catch new episodes of Julius Jr. every Sunday @ 11AM ET on Nick Jr. There are activities, videos and more available on-line at NickJr.com.
This month has been filled with organized kitchen chaos and a little bit of Christmas baking. The latest package (shown above) inspired creativity in and out of the kitchen. Our day started with making some Julius Jr inspired aprons. The girls had fun colouring the crew and even drawing additional characters. There was also a little freestyle happening with the decorating. Stamping, colouring, drawing, tattoos and stickers make for a fun time.
Just when the girls thought the fun was over we moved over to the kitchen. We created some Julius inspired recipes that were forwarded to me. The first recipe we created was a fresh fruit salad as seen on the Julius Jr episode called “Fruitronic 3000”. The second recipe we worked on was a banana delight inspired by Sheree’s banana treats in “Banana-licious”.
- 1 whole banana
- 1/3 Cup peanut Bitter
- 2 whole Graham Crackers
- 1 sheet plastic Wrap
- Mash the banana and peanut butter together in a small bowl with a spoon.
- Put a spoonful of the mixture onto half a graham cracker and top it with the other half of the sandwich.
- Add some organic honey in between the banana and cracker if desired.
- Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for 1 hour before eating.
Winter Fruit Salad
- 1 Pink Papaya
- 1 Yellow Papaya
- 1 Pint Strawberries
- 1 Lime, halved
- Fresh Mint
- Peel papayas; scoop out the seeds. Wash strawberries and remove the hulls.
- Slice strawberries in half, or quarters. Cut one of the papayas into 1-inch chunks and the other into long strips 1/2 inch wide.
- Squeeze lime over fruit, garnish with fresh mint leaves and serve!
All this fun in the kitchen had me brainstorming for our next kitchen adventure.
