There are many things I love about Valentine’s Day. Performing random acts of kindness with the kids, the smell of flowers, the cards that tug on my heart strings and the extra hugs make this day one to remember. What I don’t love? My daughters on sugar overload.
Between the school parties and after school activities, my kids get enough junk food to last them till the following year. So, at home, I am trying to prepare healthy treats that will still make the day special. Thanks to Winn-Dixie, it couldn’t be any easier.
My youngest daughter decided she wanted to give her sister a special treat this Valentine’s Day. Considering the other 355 days of the year they are fighting, I was ALL for one day of love and sisterhood! She decided on making a special pink strawberry smoothie. In the product section of my local Winn-Dixie, fresh fruit platters are sold for about $11.00. With the fruit already washed and cut, preparation so much easier and my little one can help in the kitchen.
Using some fresh strawberries, bananas, yogurt and ice, we blended into a tasty and healthy Valentine’s Day surprise for her sister. She even made a special card and attached it to the bottle! Inspired by our healthy creation, I searched for more ideas and created an entire Pinterest board to collect ideas for the future.
