I have been trying to rally my family around the healthy way of eating school of thought. I will be the first to admit that we have a goo gob ton of snack foods at any given time on our house. We almost always have a frozen treat or two in the freezer and koolaid, chips and probably cookies in the pantry. Since becoming a nurse and trying to lose some extra weight, I am trying to find healthy alternatives to our sweets we love to indulge in. I know it is really important to stay hydrated, especially in the summer, and my kids and I do not always get enough to drink. When we are going to the park or the pool for a few hours, I will make them a fruit smoothie. This way they get important nutrients, vitamins and are hydrated. Then we grab a bottle of water, and we are good to go. For me, the easiest way of making healthy drinks at home are with my awesome products from Blender Bottle.
Making Healthy Drinks At Home
If you have ever joined a weight loss program, you may have received one of the bottles with the little round whisk thing that mixes everything together. Well, that is what the blender bottle is but ever so much cooler! You can add powder and liquid, snap the lid closed and give it a few hard shakes and you have a lovely and healthy drink. One of my favorite drinks is to take frozen yogurt, skim milk and fresh fruit. I shake it up really well and it is like a fresh fruit smoothie/milkshake. My kids make their water and flavor packets together in their Blender Bottles, I use them to mix puddings and creamy soups and a ton of other things in the kitchen. They are unbelievably handy and travel well, so I can take them on the road with me. For mroe recipe ideas, you can visit the recipe page at Blender Bottle for some great suggestions.
One of my new favorite products from Blender Bottle is the new GoStack. This ingenious little product are durable little jars to carry all sorts of goodies on the go.
