This healthy mornings post is brought to you by Silk Fruit & Protein.  All opinions are my own.

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.

Silk Fruit & Protein: Healthy Drinks for the Entire Family

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?

I’m sure your mouth is watering and your mind is spinning with your own thoughts on how and when you’d use these juice blends.  So check the store locator and head out to pick some up!  You might expect to find them with the juices but they’re actually located in the milk-alternatives area, like where you’d find soy or almond milk.  And be sure to print out the current $1 off coupon so you can save yourself a bit of money.

What are some of your favorite healthy drinks?  How do you think you would incorporate Silk Fruit & Protein to shake up your wake up?
