Are you ready for spring as much as we are?! Just this past week we had 70 degree temps one day AND snow the next! Crazy! But, I’m going to hold onto the promise that warmer days are ahead! Just to hurry spring along (you can do that, right?!) we spent our last “snow”day making spring desserts and getting ready for Easter! Yes, this crazy mom had the kids dying Vibrant Easter Eggs and making Individual Fruit Pizza cookies.
YUM! And you know what? They loved it! We were all in a great mood and excited for warmer days ahead!
I mean, how could you NOT be a good mood looking at these smiling faces??!! Ella, Andrew and Sydney had a great time making our favorite Vibrant Dyed Easter Eggs, individual fruit pizzas AND drinking chocolate milk! YUM!
My kids LOVE chocolate milk and I’m pretty sure they would drink it for all meals if I’d let them. And honestly, I wouldn’t mind if all chocolate milk was as nutritious as TruMoo! TruMoo Calcium Plus is a great way to get kids the calcium they need while keeping them happy! TruMoo Calcium Plus is NEW from TruMoo! TruMoo Calcium Plus low-fat milk has 50% more calcium than regular low-fat milk with the same great TruMoo taste which is a great way to keep my kiddos smiling and keep their bones strong!
So, I didn’t mind letting the kids have a little chocolate milk with their cookies while decorating eggs. I knew they weren’t getting empty calories but eight essential nutrients, including an extra boost of calcium! That makes this mamma very happy!
Speaking of things that taste good, you have to try these Individual Fruit Pizzas – they go perfect with chocolate milk! And, I’m gonna pretend they are kinda healthy since they included fruit on top! haha!
They’re easy to make and everyone loves them! What’s great about these cookies is that you can go two ways with them: 1. Make from scratch using my favorite Sugar Cookie recipe or 2. Use store bought cookies from the bakery. Today I did the latter. I picked up some nice and soft sugar cookies from our bakery and topped them with a delicious cream cheese topping and fruit. They are soooo good!
Even if your kids aren’t big fruit fans, I guarantee they are gonna love this cookie and will love making it with you! They’re so easy to whip up when you need a fast and fun snack to go along with a big glass of chocolate milk. I like to make them with mandarin oranges, raspberries, blueberries and kiwi. It looks like a rainbow of colors! So pretty! Let the kids add their own fruit to the top of the cookies. Kids love helping! It’s a fun way to be in the kitchen without a ton of mess!
