Milk Life - Freshen Up & Strawberry Milk Smoothie Recipe

So, what does Milk Life mean?

It means living to your fullest, every day and drinking milk to to help enable the best you.

Milk Life has decided to bring 31 Milk Life challenges to YOU from May 11 through June 10 on their social media channels. Each challenge lasts 24 hours and they hope to inspire you to wring just a little more out of each day - to be your very best in every way. To really "Milk Life" and live in the moment. I participated in one of these challenges (which I will share below) and I encourage you to participate in some of them!

We selected this challenge as a family:

Milk Life Challenge #12
Freshen Up
As it heats up outside, make sure your kids have time to play.
Tell us your favorite outdoor activity!

Outdoor picnic at the art park with my favorite peeps. ❤️❤️❤️
Our family loves to explore different parks once the weather starts to get nice. Here we are at a local sculpture park in St. Louis. Drinking milk helps us have energy to keep going throughout every hour of the day, even into the evening. This is what it is like to 'Milk Life'!

We brought a picnic basket, frisbee and football. 

After the kids were tired of throwing around the frisbee and football, they were able to explore the sculpture throughout the park.

Such a beautiful sunset tonight at the park. Bet the kids sleep good tonight!
And, you can't beat an incredible sunset.

Now, I'm going to share my favorite smoothie with you... and it has MILK in it.

But, first... here are some reasons why you should 'Milk Life':

  • Milk has 8 grams of high-quality protein. Which could be the difference between just living life…and milking it.
  • Milk has 9 essential nutrients, including 8 grams of high-quality protein in each 8 ounce glass.
  • Start every day with the power of protein.
  • Including milk’s protein at breakfast can help you make the most of every day.

I always try to sneak a little extra milk into my kids diets everyday, because of all of the benefits listed above. Recently we went strawberry picking and I have been making strawberry milk smoothies for our family. The kids call them strawberry milkshakes, but they are all natural with only honey added to make them a little sweeter.

Today I am sharing this recipe with you!

Strawberry Milk Smoothie
