Reese’s Puffs Ice Cream is a MOOvolous idea for National Dairy Month!

Today is the kids last day of school for the 2013/14 school year.  Another year done.  Next year I’ll have three in the high school!  Hep meh! (I may need to start-up a cocktail blog to get me through it!)

Summer always means more relaxed schedules.  This attitude often carries over into our meal plans as well.  Like for example ice cream for breakfast.  Or maybe cereal for a snack before bedtime.  Seriously why not ice cream for breakfast?!  You’ll be voted Mom of the Year for sure!

Reese's Puffs Ice Cream

 To celebrate National Dairy Month I am partnering with the ADA Mideast and sharing my cereal inspired ice cream recipe.

It is seriously MOOvolous!

Reese's Puffs Ice Cream

We love cereal.  Usually “sugary” cereals such as Reese’s Puffs, Coco Puffs, and Captain Crunch are reserved for vacation times.  It’s a treat.  And let me tell you my kiddos treat themselves to these cereals often when we have them in our pantry!  For breakfast, for snacks, and even at night before bedtime.  I figure hey they are getting a serving of milk right!  Not that getting them to drink milk is a problem we go through as much as 10 gallons a week!

 Milk is the single greatest source of three of the four nutrients the Dietary Guidelines identified as lacking in the American diet – calcium, vitamin D and potassium.

• Experts recommend three servings of low fat or fat-free dairy foods every day, yet most of us need to add one daily serving of nutrient-rich dairy to help meet recommendations.

 Dairy foods are a tasty, convenient and cost-effective way to power up with protein throughout the day. On average, one serving of milk, cheese or yogurt provides eight grams of high quality protein.

My kiddos gobbled this right up!  And you will notice no sugar added! I know, I know there’s enough sugar in the cereal to send a cow into diabetic shock.  Indulge me on this one. This is pure dairy goodness!  A bowl full of creamy smooth ice cream anytime of day or night!  I say YOLO!

You may say, “I SCREAM YOU SCREAM WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM FOR BREAKFAST!!”  er lunch er dinner er a snack.

I would love to hear the creative ways you get a serving or 3 of dairy in your kiddos everyday during the Summer months when lemonade and pop are at every turn!
