More About This Recipe

  • When the bell rings at the end of the school day, kids can’t wait to get out and play … but first, it's SNACK TIME!

    I swear, my kids feet hit the driveway after school and they are already asking me what’s for a snack.

    One snack treat they are totally loving? Milk blended or stirred with a variety of tasty flavors. These are easy, fast ideas that can turn an ordinary old glass of milk into a great treat.

    Here are some -- both hot and cold -- to get you going:

    1. Rainbow Milk Shooters (featured)

    This is one great cold milk drink. Blend together icy nonfat milk and Fruity Cheerios (do it one color per blend), then serve ‘em in mini glasses. So fun.

    2. Use Extract Flavors

    Dress up your kids’ favorite chocolate or strawberry milk by adding a drop of an extract like vanilla to the strawberry or mint to the chocolate (really, just a drop). You can also elevate the chocolate milk by swirling in some crushed Oreos or toasted coconut.

    3. Hot Caramel Milk

    This drink is like warm comforting arms being wrapped around you – and it's easy as can be. Just swirl caramel into warm milk until it’s fully incorporated. A topping of whipped cream and drizzle of caramel finish it off perfectly. Lip smacking good!

    4. Hot Cocoa

    Another great milk-based drink for after school is hot cocoa -- made with real milk. (No instants mixed with hot water, please!) Dress up hot cocoa with a swirl of caramel or a tablespoon or two of pureed raspberries.
