Bubbles is not a huge eater, especially at breakfast. I’m lucky if I can get her to eat some yogurt and a few sips of juice. Or on occasion sometimes she’ll ask for whole wheat toast with peanut butter or cheesy scrambled eggs. Since she doesn’t eat a huge breakfast I try to ensure that what she does eat is providing maximum fuel to her growing little body.
Shake Up Your Morning With Healthy Drinks
Recently I found that Silk has a juice blend called Silk Frui t& Protein. It comes in yummy-sounding flavors like Mixed Berry, Strawberry Banana, and Mango Peach. Each glass has 5 grams of protein – something most other juices can’t provide. And protein is definitely something kids, and the whole family, can use to help power through busy mornings. Plus you get calcium and vitamins D and C, which are both essential vitamins. They’re also lactose-, gluten-, and dairy-free which I know is an important point for a lot of folks (I’m told it can be challenging to find lots of tasty gluten-free options).
While this would make a great breakfast for Bubbles or to pour into a travel mug for an on-the-go breakfast, I can think of some other options for Silk Fruit & Protein, too. I think it would be awesome poured into molds and frozen into fruit pops. On a hot day can’t you just taste a cold, juicy Mixed Berry or Strawberry Banana fruit pop? It’s something the entire family could enjoy. I also think I’ll experiment with using it as some or all of the liquid in muffins or other breads. I occasionally do that with fruit juice but adding the extra protein would be great. Or what about using one of the juice blends as the start to a fruit-packed smoothie? Continue reading »
