I have never made a spring roll recipe at home. I enjoyed eating them at the restaurant but never dared to make them myself. I thought they were tough to make and required lots of preparation. I was wrong. Spring rolls are so easy to make! And if you involve all the family members you will cut the preparation by half and have a nice family activity. That’s what we did this weekend. We set out to make a spring recipe for kids, and what accomplishes that better than a recipe with spring right in the name?
We wanted to welcome spring in a fun way. After all it was a very nice weekend in Montreal and we wanted to honor that. Spring is about flowers, colors and fresh fruits from our farmer’s market. So we decided to make fruit spring rolls. Nothing like fruits to refresh you and put a smile on your face. I decided to go with Mango as it is my daughter’s favourite fruit. Since it is the first time I make spring rolls at home, I wanted to make something with ingredients she already likes.
Mango Kiwi Spring Roll Spring Recipe for Kids
- 4 Blue Dragon Spring Roll Wrappers
- 1 mango peeled and chopped
- 2 kiwi peeled and chopped
- 1 Can of Blue Dragon Coconut Milk
- 2 TBSP of honey
How to make this spring recipe for kids
- Put the coconut milk in the freezer for 10 minutes.
- In the mean, prepare the spring rolls as the package directions. This is a delicate procedure so make sure it is done by the adult.
- Provide each family member with a plate
- Let them fill the spring rolls with fruits. Make sure to supervise the folding.
- While they fill the wrappers, prepare the coconut cream. I was inspired by Jennifer from Mom Vs The Boys. Open the coconut milk can. Remove the top layer and put in a medium bowl.
- Add honey to the coconut milk and whisk until you get a nice and smooth cream.
This was the most delectable snack ever. The mixture of spring rolls, mango, kiwi and coconut cream was truly amazing. All the family members enjoyed making the rolls and eating them in a coconut cream. I was not sure they would love the exotic flavor of the fruit but they did. They even took a spoon to eat the cream as is.
