School is starting back for a lot of kids. As moms, we need to be prepared for when they come home hungry! You want to give them a healthy midday snack that they will enjoy. Shamrock Farms has come up with some great midday snack recipes that will please any hungry kid. The snacks will pair perfectly with the new Shamrock Farms on-the-go mmmmilks.
Shamrock Farms has launched the new 12oz. on-the-go mmmmilks at Walmart. They are individual sized milks packed with 25% of daily recommended protein. They come in chocolate, strawberry, and whole regular milk. You can find them in the dairy aisle and they are only $1! These will be great to pack in the kids’ lunch boxes, too! They are fresh, nutritious, and don’t have any added hormones…something that this mom loves.
Moms are busy and we need help with some after school snack ideas. That is why Shamrock Farms introduced Roxie’s Midday Menu with easy to make recipes that pair with their milk. I created two recipes for my family to enjoy. The first recipe I tried was the Protein Popsicle Smoothies. These were perfect for a hot summer day and they are so refreshing and good for you!
- ½ cup Shamrock Farms Strawberry Reduced Fat mmmmilk
- 1 cup Greek vanilla yogurt
- Your choice of fresh or frozen fruit (I used fresh strawberries and frozen blueberries)
Combine Shamrock Farms Strawberry Reduced Fat Milk and Greek vanilla yogurt, pour into blender. Add desired fruit (about a handful of each), can be a mix of fresh and frozen fruit. Blend until smooth.
Add the mixture to your favorite popsicle molds. Freeze for 3 to 4 hours & enjoy!
The next recipe I made were the No Bake Energy Bites. We all know that kids need a pick me up after school to get started on that homework. These paired perfectly with the regular on-the-go mmmmilk. You can make these as large or as small as you want.
- ½ cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
- 1 cup toasted coconut
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup nut butter (I used peanut butter)
- 1 cup dry oatmeal
Pour all ingredients into medium size bowl. Stir ingredients until combined. Roll into balls. Refrigerate until firm.
There are 4 other recipes that you can try from the Midday Menu:
