My girls were so excited for today! They have been making Valentine’s for weeks now and trying to figure out what they were going to get their dad!  The girls woke up to a Frozen themed Valentine’s Day gift, Anna and Elsa swimsuits, and FunBites Heart Pancakes!  Then off to school the went for endless lollipops, candy and treats from the school bake sale, what’s not to love!

During the week, the girls and I tried different Valentine’s snacks for after school!  They are so simple, you could run out or pick up the ingredients on your way home but you probably have them already!

“Berry Banana’s for You” smoothie:

  • 1 plain non-fat Fage Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Banana
  • A handful of Strawberries, cut
  • 3 Strawberry Peeps Marshmallows (I got the idea to use Peeps in a Smoothie after a Holiday event I attended!)
  • a handful of ice

Blend all ingredients but only use 2 peeps  until consistency you like.  Slide the third Peeps Strawberry Heart trough a straw, use gel icing to write a message! Serve and enjoy!

Valentine’s Fruit Tray

  • Grapes
  • Driscoll’s Strawberries
  • Cabot Sharp White Cheddar Cheese Single

Use a gel icing writer to outline the shape of a heart on a serving dish!  Place grapes on the gel icing!  Once the heart outline is complete, fill with strawberries.  Finish by using a knife to cut an XO out of a piece of Cabot Sharp White Cheddar Cheese single!
