Lately the kiddos haven’t been interested in milk. They have always, I mean, ALWAYS been a fan, until recently – they want nothing to do with it! But yet, they are big fans of the vanilla “cow” milk at Starbucks. Well, I’m not ready to give up just yet! MILK FOR EVERYONE!!! (shouting just a little ;) So, here’s what I’m doing to make them milk drinkers again.
So, always the tinkerer, I’ve started adding pure vanilla & just a little bit of sugar to their milk. We call it “Vanilla Milk” and it’s not JUST milk – it’s an experience, and it’s so much more exciting now! I get out the blender and they stand in their Learning Tower together and help. They add the ingredients, taking turns, and sometimes (only sometimes ;) they are even brave enough to press the buttons on the blender to evoke those loud scary noises ;) And then…they drink & drink & drink that yummy vanilla milk! They love it – I love it – it’s a win-win!
So, here’s my plan! We actually started off with a little more sugar than I put in the recipe below – shhh – it was only the first time, I was still experimenting. I have since decreased it to the amount we currently use, which is in the recipe below (and they haven’t even noticed!). I will continue to decrease it as long as I can, so that I can finally get back to the original milk :) Well, that’s the plan – I’ll let ya know how it goes!
