I have never been a juice mom. My kids drink water and milk, and are perfectly happy with both. I don't dislike juice, I just don't find it necessary in my kids' already sugar-full diet.
But having toddlers and a 10 year old who are very picky about what they eat has made me realize that sneaking healthy stuff into anything I can is a good idea.
I make the boys a lot of smoothies packed with greens when I can... but sometimes I just don't have the time. And that is where this new Capri Sun Super V drink comes in!
We all know that kids of all ages love Capri Sun... partly for the fun container and of course because it tastes good. I have never thought of it as more than a special treat though, so it has not been a regular in our house.
This new version, Super V, is full of veggies and just as tasty as the original.
And even better, I feel great serving it to my kids, the littles have no idea their fun treat is loaded with veggies, and my 10 year old doesn't care about the veggies because it tastes so good!
It's a win-win for all of us!!
Oh, and to make things even more exciting... I found Capri Sun Super V at my local Costco. Man, my life just got a little easier!
If you like the idea of a sneakily-healthy snack-time, make some of my No-Bake Cookie Dough Energy Bites to serve with your Super V.
The kids have no idea they are getting a healthy energy-boost, and you can feel good snacking right along with them!
Cookie Dough Energy Bites Recipe
adapted from smashed peas and carrots
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup sweetened or unsweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup ground almonds, ground flaxseed, or wheat germ
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut or almond butter
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together until well combined. You may want to use your [clean] hands for this... it's much easier!!
Once completely combined, roll the dough into small balls and place on a parchment or wax-paper lined baking sheet. Chill in the fridge or freezer until completely set before serving... at least an hour.
Store in tupperware in the fridge or freezer!
