Easy Grilled Ribs Recipe

Delicious and Easy Grilled Ribs Recipe

Easy Grilled Ribs Recipe

I recently had the opportunity to review a Rec Tec Grills and the first meal we cooked on it included this Delicious Barbecue Ribs Recipe. My daughter (10 years old) was involved in the whole process from start to finish. She even took responsibility for helping create and record the marinade recipe. She was very excited as this was the first time she played such a major role in a recipe. She even learned to step out of the box and try new spices she wouldn’t normally use. Not only was her marinade amazing the Rec Tec Grill made this Kids BBQ Recipes a hit for everyone at the BBQ there was barely a bite left when the meal was over.

Yogurt is the key ingredient in any smoothe and especially if it is Dannon Whole Milk Yogurt
The key ingredient that you will find in every smoothie is yogurt. No matter which fruits, vegetables, juices, or supplements you add, if you don’t start with delicious, natural, whole milk yogurt your smoothie won’t be as healthy as it can be. We all want better more natural ingredients in our foods and I am happy to share that Dannon is listening. Dannon yogurt is now made with whole milk and all natural non-GMO ingredients.

The Dannon Pledge:

In addition to yogurt made with whole milk, natural and non-GMO ingredients, Dannon has also pledged transparency and sustainability. Labels will indicate presence of non-GMO and GMO products which is a huge step to help consumers make better food chooses. They are sourcing ingredients sustainably by working directly with farmers they know.

With a serving a both fruit and vegetables tis smoothie is a great way to sneak in some extra veggies

Why Yogurt?

If your like me, the main motivation behind making these smoothie is to get more fruits and vegetables into my kids. Trust me, they will have no idea you hid kale in this smoothie. But yogurt is also god for them (and you). The active cultures in bacteria help replenish the good bacteria in your gut. Those same cultures make yogurt easier to digest especially for folks who have trouble with lactose.

Fresh and fruity rooty tooty smoothies are so good and easy to make

Champagne Fruit Punch Recipe for Kids

Champagne Fruit Punch Recipe

This Champagne Fruit Punch Recipe is made just for kids. It’s a drink my children and their friends love to drink because it fizzles, fizzes, and best of all, it “pops”.  We pour it into nice crystal glasses and we celebrate. We have celebrated everything from reading a book to ringing in the New Year. This is my go to recipe for “Champagne.” I love it because it is easy to make since it only requires two ingredients.  Fancy it up a little more by embellishing it with a piece of fresh fruit.
