You have heard me talk about TruMoo milk before and this time I am here to introduce you to the idea of bringing yummy flavored TruMoo milk into your baking ingredients for your kiddos. Look, parenting is hard, especially when trying to think of healthy food options for those early mornings. Thankfully, my kids have both always loved milk. I started to let them have treats of chocolate or strawberry milk a couple times a week for breakfast. I started to think about that and figured that all that sugary syrup probably was not good for them. This is when I found TruMoo.
Every glass of TruMoo starts with fresh, pure milk from a trusted dairy. This means that the drink that your child is enjoying is full of 8 essential nutrients AND even though it is a sweetened milk it is sweetened with just enough sugar and NO high fructose corn syrup.
I love that I give my kids this special treat but still be giving their body some great nutrients as well. I decided to try to get creative with my kids' favorite flavor of TruMoo milk - Strawberry. I wanted to make something for Teagan's birthday breakfast but knew I wouldn't have time to whip something up before work and school so I made some muffins that freeze perfectly and can be made ahead of time.
