We’re officially in our last week of the school year….and let’s just say I’ve been savoring every last moment of it. Because once summer break starts? It’s all over for me.
Yes, once the kids are home for the summer, my schedule consists of driving, play dates, summer school, afternoons at the pool, zoo days, picnics, sleepovers, and lots of time away from home.
And to be honest, when you have 4 kids and multiple activities and beautiful summer weather….who really wants to be stuck at home, anyway? Right?
(Is my pep talk working???) I’m really trying.
At the very least, I HAVE to be prepared for it. If I pretty much know we won’t be home all day…well…we’re going to need back up. And lots of it. In the form of snacks!!
And I’m not just talking a bag of popcorn and some juice boxes. I’m talking about satisfying snacks that will take us through the day. Snacks that can double as lunch. Snacks that will keep us all…..happy!
We recently discovered Live Real Farms Wholesome Smoothies in the dairy aisle at Pick ‘n Save, and let’s just say we’ll definitely be stocking our cooler with them this summer. They’re all natural, made with no added sugar, and they’re loaded with probiotics. And best of all? They’re a great source of protein! Which is exactly what we’ll need to make it through the crazy days of summer.
Live Real Farms Wholesome Smoothies come in three delicious flavors: Strawberry Banana, Mixed Berry, and Pineapple Orange Mango. And you better believe we all have our favorites. I love the refreshing flavor of the Pineapple Orange Mango, and my kids all really seem to love the Strawberry Banana flavor best. But the truth is….we love them all.
They’re smooth, creamy, and SO incredibly convenient. Even more convenient, they come in a 32 oz. multi-serve size and a 10 oz. single-serve size. We keep a couple big bottles on hand at home, and always stock up on the smaller bottles to take with us when we’re out and about.
I’m a big fan of Live Real Farms, not just for their delicious products, but because they’re a 100% farmer-owned company with a mission to produce healthy, high-quality food with honesty and integrity while ensuring the sustainability of our land for generations to come. It feels good to support brands that care so much about the communities they serve.
We love pairing these smoothies with our favorite Superfood Apple Blueberry Muffins for breakfast, and when you pair them with any of these 3 Easy Tortilla Pinwheels, you basically have yourself a snack and a meal all in one.
When it comes to pinwheels, the possibilities are literally endless. We’ve made Bacon Cheddar Ranch Pinwheels and Spinach Goat Cheese Sun Dried Tomato Pinwheels, just to name a few, and I honestly feel like I’ve never met one I didn’t like.
But what I really love about these 3 easy tortilla pinwheels recipes is that they’re each made with just four ingredients. And, speaking of protein, they’re all protein-packed, too!
Whether you prefer turkey/cucumber/cream cheese or hummus/spinach/red pepper or guacamole/chicken/pepper jack….there’s something for everyone. And I honestly couldn’t even tell you which one I like best because they’re all so flavorful!
They’re the perfect savory snack to go with our favorite new smoothies, and they’re ideal for busy days on the go. Summer break – here we come! We’re READY for you!
