TruMoo & Strawberry Pudding Pops

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TruMoo for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Strawberry Pudding Pops

Do you remember way back when you were a kid and Bill Cosby was telling us on TV to buy Pudding Pops?  I just loved those things.  They were the best creamy treat in the frozen food section! But alas one day they just disappeared, never return.  
I miss them.
So I decided I would make my own.  Only today I am adding a little twist to make them a bit more healthy. They make great after school snacks, or for mom after she sends them all out the door and can enjoy one all to herself!
  pudding pops diy
Trumoo Strawberry Milk 
1 pkg vanilla pudding
10 fresh strawberries
1/4 C. TruMoo Creamer or half & half
With a hand mixer whip the pudding, half &half and 1 1/2 C. Trumoo Strawberry milk.  Whip on medium high for 2 minutes.   This blends the pudding and adds a little air to the half and half.  Set aside for 4-5 minutes so it can start to set.
Next rinse off your berries.  Remove the stem and dice into small pieces. Put a tablespoon or two into your Popsicle containers or paper cups. 
strawberry chunks
Pour your pudding mix into the popsicle containers. I use a spoon because your pudding can be a bit thick. Fill almost to the top and place sticks inside. Use your stick to mix the fruit into the popsicle.  
Place in freezer for at least 4 hours before eating.
These yummy and fresh tasting pudding pops are the perfect after school snack.  Packed with milk and berries, your kids will love them! My kids gobbles these babies up and asked for more.  
You could totally make these in TruMoo Chocolate and add berries or Bananas.

We also bought the Chocolate milk.  After reading the label, I was hooked.  With no added junk or thickener, I think it may have come from a chocolate cow.  We loved the taste.  My kids drank a gallon in two day.  Even my non milk drinker drank it up.

Zours candy marshmallow popcorn snack www.freetimefrolics.com #zoursface #shop #recipe

When I was a kid I loved sour candy.  My friends and I would have a competition to see who could eat the most sour candy at once. Did you ever do that?  We would eat until our taste buds were dead. So when I had the opportunity to head out to my local Walmart to test out the new Zours® Candy by Mike & Ike, I said Heck yeah!! They come in the perfect sized box for movie snacks, purse treat or a park snack! The sweet and sour taste takes me right back to being a kid.

Summer Citrus Slush


A a youth I remember every big summer activity we had this drink that I just loved. We called it SLOP. It stood for Seven-up, lemonade, orange juice and Pineapple.  Put them all together and what do you get?  SLOP! You mix up the each ingredients and enjoy. So I decide to make it a yummy, cool slush that my kids can enjoy on a hot summer day.  I love mixing this up and freezing it in old Ice cream containers and keeping it for a few weeks.  This recipe isn't an exact match but it is delicious and perfect for those hot summer days!

Pina Colada Smoothie with Carnation Breakfast Essentials

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Nestle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia  #BreakfastEssentials http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV



Do you have a wake up and go routine??  I try most days to get up and go to the gym then come home and get my kids on the bus. We go to school crazy early.  The bus comes at 7:30.  So my kids have to be fairly responsible  and get up and get going  on there own.  I am one of those moms that who makes my kids do their own lunch and then they have to have a healthy breakfast.  Like Eggs and bagels kind of breakfast.  I find that my kids do better in school when they have a breakfast packed with protein.  So when Carnation Breakfast Essentials came to my home, I was ecstatic to find out that each serving has essential vitamins and  13 grams of protein!  And its so easy to make my 6 year does it on her own!

Homemade Knock Off Peanut Butter Twix Bars {Recipe}

Homemade Peanut Butter Twix www.freetimefrolics.com #recipe


I am a total kid of the 80's.  Neon, Cyndi Lauper, Garbage Pail Kids and Cabbage Patch Dolls.  I remember it all.  There were so many foods I loved that are no longer on the market.Some of you may have remembered the Mars company had 4 kinds of Twix Bars.  Caramel, Peanut Butter, Cookies and Cream and Chocolate.  All of them are super delicious.  But, over time they slowly pulled each from the market except the caramel. So recently I started having a hankering for the Peanut Butter Twix. So I started thinking how could I make those. Then a wonderful company Chocoley, contacted me and asked if I wanted to try there products.  I jumped at the opportunity.  After checking out their products I thought this was the perfect opportunity to make my homemade Peanut Butter Twix.

Best Crock pot Rotisserie Chicken you have ever eaten!




So a few weeks ago I started a 21 day program.  I am trying to get off those stubborn 15 pounds that keep bringing me down. So I have been looking for recipes and foods to help me on my journey. I love rotisserie chicken. Like the ones you get at the supermarket for $5.  You can use it in salads, sandwiches, wraps or just to eat. Just about anything you use rotisserie chicken for. I love the flavor and the ease that comes with buying one and and having it ready to eat. So when I was finding foods to eat for my 21 day fix I wanted to make my life as easy as possible and still eat clean. So I took a recipe from a recipe book that was for grilled chicken and made it in the crockpot.  It tasted just like the rotisserie chicken you buy in the store, but better. Juicy and already pulled off the bone! I also love having a recipe knowing what spices are in it.  Most of the spices you already have in your pantry.

Cinnamon Bear Popcorn {Recipe}



Lets start with a little story from the past.  When I was pregnant with my oldest I had crazy cravings. I would crave steak, orange juice, watermelon and cinnamon bears.  I just couldn't get enough. Now I have always likes these food but pregnancy took them to a whole new level.  I think we ate steak 4 times a week.  Watermelon and orange juice were always in the fridge and the cinnamon bears... Well my husband did his best to keep them out of the house.  
One evening we were driving home from the in-laws when I said to him, "Hey stop at the store, I want cinnamon bear."  He did not want to stop.  He was bent on not stopping.  To say that we got into a tiff was an understatement.  
Now every woman knows and so does my husband know. When you have a craving you need to eat it!  Any usually its not the whole bag or carton. Just a few bites or an handful of the treat.  
So I threatened him.  I told him even if he wouldn't stop I would get into my own car when we got home and go get them myself.  So he stopped! (small victory!!) I grabbed my bag of cinnamon bears and ate a handful the rest of the way home.  I was a happy girl with a happy fetus inside.  
Ever since then I have always loved cinnamon.  Bears, chocolate covered ones or chewy cinnamon in any shape!

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup {Recipe}


One of my Favorite meal my Grandma made me as a kid was Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. She would bring it down when I was sick, On a cold snowy day or just because she knew I was coming. When I got older she shared the recipe with me but it just didn't taste right. Until years later she shared her secret with  me.  She secretly added Turnip and Cabbage to her soup.  It makes it  taste delicious.  She was so sneaky. My dad didn't even know it.  I feel privileged she shared her secret with me. So today I am sharing my recipe with you!

How to make The Perfect Whipped Cream

As a little girl my granny always made homemade whipped cream.  I really didn't even know about artificial whip topping. Fast forward to my engagement.  For my very first Thanksgiving away from home, my husband and I ate at his parent house.  When they pulled out the pie the family threw a tub of artificial whip topping on the table.  Now I am not opposed to this stuff but on Thanksgiving the real stuff is in order, Right? When I asked for whip cream they replied  its on the table.  I died a little inside.  Pumpkin pie should only be served with REAL whipped cream. 
Fast forward to today.  I decided that it was time to share a few tips for amazing Whipped Cream. Just like grandma makes.


Heavy Whipping cream
Sugar
Vanilla

Start with a chilled bowl. This one is super important.  I like to stick my bowl in the fridge or freezer for about an hour before I make my cream.  When you chill your bowl your cream whips up faster and stays stiff longer. 

Start whipping your cream. After about a minute or so add your sugar and vanilla.  Add sugar and vanilla according to taste. For a half quart I usually add about a tablespoon of sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla. 
Continue whipping until the whip cream starts to make small peaks.

If you have to store in the refrigerator use a fork to whip your cream a bit before serving.

Let it Snow...Snowballs Recipe and Blog Hop

I have teamed up today for our monthly blog hop to share with you a little snow.  
So way back when I was a little sprout my grandma use to make these yummy little desserts every Christmas.  She made dozens of them and delivered them to here neighbors and family.  I loved them.  And then I grew up and life happened and she stopped making them.   So about 8 years ago I asked every member of my extended family what there favorite "grandma" recipes were.  You know you all have those favorite recipes that Grandmas makes, right? Well the Snowball recipe was revived. I compiled the recipes and made a cook book of all grannies recipes. Each m;ember of my family has a cookbook.  Most of them still use the cookbook at least once a week.  

So move forward 8 years, I am finally getting around to making these yummy little treats!  They truly are to die for.  My cute little neighbor calls them Hawaiian Snowballs.  They are delicious!  Check out my post on how to make these for your next party or just because they are so good.
