This year is the first year Nolan is playing football. Although he is new to this, and boy has it been a struggle for him to learn everything since he has never played before, he has been a champ. He has practice three times a week and games on Saturday's. Keeping him hydrated has been a struggle but also keeping full is also hard. I'm not sure how this kid is so hungry all the time. He is only 5, and I feel he is already eating me out of house and home. I can only imagine what it will be like when he is a teen, and I have two teen boys to feed. Talk about scary.
So each night after practice, before bed, I try to give him a small treat before bed. He just loves the smoothies I make him with the Shamrock Farms single-serve mmmmilk. This recipe is simple and easy and with the new single-serve milk it makes it even easier to make. I just pick up three each time I go to Walmart, and they last all week. How awesome is that?
Smoothies are simple and each night I like to change it up a bit. Sometimes it's with the milk and sometimes it's with the fruit I use. But Nolan's and I have to say my favorite will have to be my Strawberry Banana smoothie.
Shamrock Farm's Single serve mmmmilk (2% chocolate, chocolate milk, 2% strawberry, whole regular milk)
By mixing all the ingredent's above (just the juice from the orange), blinding it with my Nutri Bullet it only takes 5 minutes and my son is all set for his late night snack. I love that this is a simple, easy and healthy option for him to have.
Shamrock Farms mmmilk is also launching Roxie's Ultimate Back-To-School Sweepstakes where one lucky winner will receive nearly $5,000 ($4,999) in gift cards to stock up on back-to-school supplies, groceries and a new wardrobe. You can enter the SWEEPSTAKES here and will be running from June 25- August 20th. Good Luck
I just wanted to share a few more of Roxie's amazing recipes. My favorite would have to be her Banana Rolls:
1-2 tsp honey or agave nectar
1/2 cup peanut butter or cream cheese
Pinch of cinnamon
2 whole wheat tortillas
Mix the honey (or agave nectar), peanut butter (or cream cheese), and cinnamon in a bowl. Spread mixture onto tortillas. Place a whole banana on each tortilla and roll up. Toast until golden brown on each side in a pan. Slice into 1/2 inch rounds, then serve with toothpicks. Don't forget to enjoy with your Shamrock Farms Chocolate mmmilk.
