The Best Chocolate Milk & Treats for the Holidays!
The holidays are here! It’s a time for everyone to come together in the warmth of the home to reminisce about the year and celebrate family. This year, be prepared with yummy snacks for everyone who drops by – including Santa! Whether for a spontaneous get-together or a planned party, be ready with these quick nutritious holiday platters that taste great, too!
Simple Cheese Board
We don’t typically associate cheese with healthy eating, but it can actually be a tasty and nutritious snack for the holidays. Try slicing goat cheese, topping with marinara sauce and basil and baking until melty! Served with bite-sized whole wheat baguette, it is a tasty and more nutritious snack your guests will love.
Colorful Fruit Tray
To keep the kids entertained while getting the proper serving of fruits, let them play with their food! Serve them colorful fruit like green grapes, honeydew, strawberries and small orange slices, and have them rearrange them to make fun holiday creations!
Flavored Popcorn Platter
Popcorn is a great snack to serve all year long. To give them a little holiday flare, try using yummy toppings like cinnamon and sugar – or white chocolate to mimic the snowy weather! On a colder day, pair it with a warm mug of TruMoo Lowfat Chocolate Milk and top with light whipped cream or marshmallows.
Healthified Sugar Cookies
Once again, it’s time to break out the cookie cutters! Nothing says “it’s time for the holidays” like cookies and milk. This time, try replacing sugar with a sugar blend, and replace the eggs with an egg substitute in your recipe for a healthier treat with the same yummy taste! Don’t forget to pair your cookies with fresh milk for added calcium and protein. The best chocolate milk is sometimes the most nutritious and delicious! To go with your next batch of healthified treats, try serving TruMoo chocolate milk. With no HFCS and pure cocoa, it’s a yummy chocolaty treat kids will love!
Santa’s on his way!
Your kids may argue that Santa is the most important guest of all. This year, treat him to the same healthy snacks you’d give your family – and set a good example for the kiddos, too! Instead of leaving him chocolate chip cookies and milk, set out something a little healthier.
Try having the little ones help out with baking oatmeal raisin cookies. They can practice counting out raisins, while learning what makes oatmeal a healthier option than other cookie dough.
When it comes to the milk – keep the kids involved! Ask their opinion on which hot cocoa recipe using lowfat chocolate milk Santa would love the most! Then, leave out a delicious snack for Santa and let the kids enjoy a yummy dessert they helped create.
