We have had an amazing Summer. However, here in Southern California it feels like we’re right in the middle of it still – even though we’re heading into September. So to combat the heat, we’ve been making smoothies left and right for our meals and snacks.
We love making smoothies at home because they are super simple to put together, extremely vegetarian friendly, and we get to top off our fruit and veggies intake! It also gets our diet back on track – especially after we’ve had our share of trips, excursions and activities these last few months. We ate our share of ice cream, fortune cookies and sourdough bread while in San Francisco, and then there was our meal at Denny’s Diner where we devoured avocado sandwiches. Of course, I can’t forget about the snacks that we had during our parties, like the “Reading under the Stars” get together and our Disney Jr. fiesta! Boy – we had an awesome Summer! And now, we need to get back on track.
So we partnered with Nestlé NIDO to introduce this easy-to-make powdered milk product to the kids. However, because the chiclets are not used to drinking cow milk, I decided to simply add it to a smoothie that is chock full of fruits and veggies.
Nestlé NIDO Kinder 1+ is a powdered milk beverage with 13 vitamins and minerals to help support your child’s healthy growth and development. NIDO 1+ also contains Prebio1, an exclusive blend of fiber. Fiber helps to maintain a healthy digestive system and keeps the kids “regular.” It’s also an easy way to ensure that kids are getting all the vitamins and minerals that they need!
