How to Create a Special Kids’ Valentine's Day With Tampico
Our kids aren't kids forever. This is something I always think about when holidays and special events come around. Valentine's Day is no exception.
I like to make Valentine's Day extra special for my kids starting with a yummy breakfast! This is a time just for us to spend together before Valentine's activities start for them at school.
This year we are making pancakes and fruity breakfast smoothies for our kids on Valentine's Day.
Making a surprise breakfast for my kids always makes them feel so special and loved. I LOVE surprises and usually keep my kids in the dark about special things I have planned for them, so I can see the surprised look on their cute faces.
I am so excited to share with you how we made our breakfast smoothies for the kids. We used fresh fruit and Tampico because it's so colorful and my kids love the flavors.
Kids Fruity Breakfast Smoothies
Here's What You'll Need:
- Two large bananas sliced
- 1/2 cup strawberries sliced
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1 cup Tampico (You can use your favorite flavor! We used Mango Punch, one of our favorites.)
Here's What To Do:
- Put fruit in individual sealed sandwich bags as shown below
- Put bags of fruit in the freezer for about 3 hours. (If you leave them longer than that they may be too frozen and have to thaw a bit)
- Place frozen fruit in blender with 1 cup of Tampico
- Blend it up at medium speed until mixed
- Serve (We served these in mason jars with pink paper straws, trying to keep with a Valentine's Day Theme)
This smoothie comes out a reddish pink color, perfect for Valentine's Day! It only takes about 5 minutes to make after the fruit is frozen, easy for busy moms like me, and makes 2-3 smoothies. You could easily double the recipe if you need to make more.
We love making these with pancakes which are another favorite of our kids! You can use the same berries you use for the smoothie to put on top of the pancakes.
Do you have any special plans to make Valentine's Day special for your kids? What flavor of Tampico would you use for your kids breakfast smoothies?
