Frozen Hot Chocolate & Our Daily Routine
When it comes to having kids, they can be so unpredictable! The very same breakfast they love one week can quickly turn into something they despise the next. I have gone through so many different cereals, waffles, pancakes, eggs, and bread varieties that it makes my head spin. Just about the only thing my kids never turn down is their milk, or Frozen Hot Chocolate–thank goodness!
Not so surprisingly, my kids love TruMoo Milk. I guess they get it from their mom (me) because I also love TruMoo Chocolate Milk and Coffee Milk (regional). I survived on it during my pregnancy cravings so maybe that is why all three of my kids love their daily glasses of milk. We also buy 1-2 gallons of DairyPure brand whole milk because that is what I use for my morning smoothies, or cereal.
Since my kids can be so unpredictable, this week they are starting their days with either a banana, or clementine and some chocolate chip swirl bread with a glass of Garelick Farms DairyPure whole milk. It is an easy breakfast to put together and covers a few nutritional needs to get their bodies fueled for class. At 10 am they have an additional piece of fruit, and then a wholesome lunch at noon.
The real whirlwind in my daily routine starts at 3 pm once my girls get home from school. They are usually ravenous and all wound up with things to tell me about their day. Since they eat pretty wholesome during the day I like to make TruMoo chocolate a part of their afternoon snacking routine. This week, the weather is warming up and my kids have decided that they wanted mommy to make her famous ” frozen hot chocolate “.
- 1 1/2 cups of ice cubes
- 2 cups of TruMoo Chocolate Milk
- 1-2 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix
- 4 cups
Add all 3 ingredients to your blender and blend until just crushed, and frosty. I use a Blendtec so the smoothie setting or ice cream settings work great!
The TruMoo Frozen Hot Chocolate drinks is slushie, frosty, and has just the *right* amount of sweetness, and nutrition. As a parent, it is VERY important to me that DairyPure brand milk and TruMoo contains no artificial growth hormones*, and come from our local dairy, making them the perfect nutritious and delicious dairy products for my three kids. They help my kids start and end the day right.
*No significant difference has been shown between milk derived from cows treated with the artificial growth hormone rbST and non-rbST-treated cows.
Are TruMoo and DairyPure milk brands part of your child’s routine?
