One thing most kids will gladly chug down day or night is milk, especially flavored milk. It's a great source of protein and calcium (and sugar, so be careful), but there's one brand out there offering a bit more. Have you heard of Sneakz Organic Milkshakes?? I've reviewed them before (see it here) and I'm back to talk about them again because they've thrown 6 six-packs of their milk, a tote, and reusable shopping bag into my $400 value jackpot Spring Goodies for the Kiddies Giveaway - link at bottom to enter to win!!
And get this - if you don't do dairy, NO PROBLEM!! They've even launched a VEGAN protein powder featuring 14 grams of protein, probiotics, 10 essential amino acids and a half serving of vegetables!!
I've been hearing a lot about the health benefits of chia seeds - rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidents - a true superfood! You can use them to replace eggs in a recipe or toss them into just about anything for added nutrients. You can also use them to make pudding, chia seed pudding to be more exact. You basically soak chia seeds in milk and your choice of flavor and sweetener, and after a few hours in the fridge the chia has soaked up the liquid and turned into a gelatinous seedy nutrient-packed pudding. I figured it sounds simple enough, I could tackle it! I decided to make a batch of chia pudding featuring each flavor of Sneakz. And you know what chocolate plus strawberry plus vanilla means... NEAPOLITAN CHIA SEED PUDDING!!! Keep reading for my "recipe" (I can't even call it a recipe because it's just too simple LOL!!!).
- 3x heaping 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 8oz box of Sneakz Organic Milkshake in each flavor (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry)
- Scoop 1 heaping 1/4 cup of chia seeds into 3 separate containers
- Squeeze 1 entire 8z box of Sneakz Organic Milkshake into 1 container (1 flavor per container)
- Stir each container well (if you use a mason jar with a lid, you can close it tight and shake it)
- Refrigerate overnight
- Eat as is if you want to keep flavors separate, or scoop each flavor carefully into a glass to get the layered Neopolitan look.
Please note: chia pudding is a very odd texture - some love it, some hate it. My son made it to the second bite before he decided he hated it (no offense to Sneakz, he begs for you all day every day haha!!) You may find the flavor from just Sneakz alone isn't quite enough, so you can explore by blending the milk with berries or other flavors (nutella, peanut butter and banana, etc!!) before adding it to the chia seeds and refrigerating. If you try something that turns out great, reply below and share the love!!!
I hope you didn't forget about the giveaway!!! We've got a $400 value jackpot of kids toys, shoes, clothes, and picnic wares!!!
