Shake It Up with Frush!

If you follow us on Twitter and ‘Like’ our Facebook page you would have noticed that on Friday we mentioned hosting a taste testing party for Frush, a fruit and yogurt drink. Made with real fruit and creamy yogurt, this superdrink is a great snack for anytime of the day. There are 9 grams of protein per serving.

This drink comes in 8oz. and 32oz. bottles and is available in 4 flavors:
  • Blueberry
  • Strawberry
  • Peach
  • Strawberry Banana
Each of the flavors were very tasty. We had a poll going through out the day to see which flavor everyone liked best. Strawberry won, but Blueberry came in a very close second. We found out at the party that the kids loved the fruit and yogurt drink as well.
Below are a few pictures of the goodies that were sent to us. Once we have all the pictures people took from the party we will post them on our Facebook page.
Be sure to check them out on Facebook, Twitter, their website and they even have an iPhone app!!


Taste Test Tuesday: Pepperidge Farm Strawberry Banana Swirl Bread

Good day everyone, happy Tuesday. We hope you are enjoying your week so far. School has started back for some kids so for the next few weeks we will feature some products that we think you and your kids will love. Today in the kitchen we are tasting some bread from Pepperidge Farm.

Strawberry Banana Swirl Bread

Pepperidge Farm has had swirl bread for years. They are known for their Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread. Well they decided to change things up a bit and create a Strawberry Banana Swirl Bread. This loaf of bread is very good. It’s enjoyable any way you decide to use it. Each slice shows the swirls of bananas and strawberries, and you can taste them. This is a great addition to our household and helps with putting a spin on toast for breakfast. Remember, it’s bread so it isn’t just there to be toasted and then add butter. Be creative and check out what we did with our Pepperidge Farm Strawberry Banana Bread.

Ways to Incorporate Bread Into Your Meals

  • Toast and spread on Nutella
  • Make a parfait with yogurt, strawberries and bananas
  • Dip in egg wash to make french toast, or use butter instead of eggs
  • Toast and spread on cream cheese
  • Cut a circle in the middle and fry an egg (french toast and eggs)
  • Use it to make bread pudding
  • Make a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich 
  • Spread on Peanut Butter, and add slices of strawberries, bananas, or apples                                                                                              

So how will you add this sweet bread into your home? Remember, this bread freezes well. Since it’s a limited edition it won’t be around for long.

Thanks for joining us today in the kitchen, we appreciate it.


Taste Test Tuesday…Yoplait Smoothies

Happy Tuesday Everyone!! Today and every Tuesday will be ‘Taste Test Tuesday’ on the blog. Here I will share with you the goodies I have found. I’ll rate each item with my trusty spoons.

1 Spoon: It was okay, could have been better
2 Spoons: Good idea, I can give it a second chance
3 Spoons: Really good, I would suggest you try this as well
4 Spoons: Fabulous idea, this is definitely a staple item

Today we have our fist TTT item…….Yoplait Smoothies!!

Time to pull out those blenders.  You know the one that has been sitting in cabinet for months without being used, or the one that’s been in the box that it came in when you got it for Christmas last month? Yup, that’s the one!
 
Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries, Pineapples, Mangoes, Pomegranates, Bananas and even Chocolate are all apart of these delicous Yoplait Smoothies. Fruit and Yogurt is combination and it’s healthy too. The bags come in various sizes and can be found in the frozen fruit section. I usually get the large bag that has individually wrapped pouches for 2-3 servings at a time. Can you tell I like to make these in large batches? LOL They freeze very well and can stay cool in the refrigerator too. The instructions on the bag say to use with milk, sometimes I use juice or even green tea. The texture will change a little depending on which liquid you decide to use.
 
Yoplait Smoothies come in five different varieties: Strawberry Banana, Triple Berry, Blueberry Pomegranate, Strawberry Mango Pineapple, and Chocolate Banana.  I’m sure there is something you would love. Try them out and let me know what you think.
