Still searching for the perfect treats for the Valentines in your life? Get inspired by these ideas:
Yogurt Parfaits and Smoothies: Perfect and pink ways to greet the loves of your life on Valentine's morning. What's more, these make for a simple and nutritious breakfast!
Cupcakes: Spruce up your favorite cupcake recipe (ours is Wacky Cake) by adding some festive colors and hearts.
Dairy-free, Egg-free Tiramisu: Okay, so this recipe involves a few steps with some wait time in between. This may be too late for Valentine's Day but there's nothing wrong with some post-Valentine's Day celebrating with this extra special labor of love.
Aside from the sugary affections that you will surely bestow on your loved ones, add these simple loving touches:
- Cut sandwiches, pancakes, and tostadas into heart shapes. Or arrange cut-up fruit in heart shapes in your kids' cereal bowls.
- Slip in a handwritten Valentine in your child's lunchbox. Including an old photo of you with your child will earn you extra hugs!
- Add a little red to each meal. If not with vitamin-rich strawberries or raspberries (frozen or fresh works), bell peppers, tomatoes, or other produce, include a red napkin as a reminder of the special day.
