Layered Berry Smoothie

Layered smoothies take extra time, but they are so worth it! My family has been working out a ton this weekend (tennis tournament, hiking, swimming, running and golf) so we decided to make these Layered Berry Smoothie just in time for the Memorial Day holiday. The best way to make these, so the flavors don’t run into each other is to prepare each flavor at a time, and put each flavor in the freezer until ready to layer.

These layered smoothies are so healthy with fresh strawberries, blueberries and bananas. They are also easy to prepare, taste fresh, are filling and are good for you. Feel free to use your favorite milk, and if you can’t have dairy, feel free to substitute coconut water.

Mango Bread

Mango Bread

June is National Dairy Month so to celebrate, try this Mango Bread. If you’re wondering, what does a quick bread have to do with dairy foods, this recipe actually contains Yoplait’s Apricot Mango Yogurt and Silk soy milk and frozen mango chunks (from the freezer section). This recipe is also very easy, and there’s no mixer needed (just combine everything in one bowl). The dairy aisle is beyond cool! People tend to think of the dairy aisle as the place for everyday foods, but there are truly so many creative ways to use dairy aisle ingredients in cooking and baking. Foods are made from real, fresh, farm-grown ingredients that we need for our well-balanced lifestyle. They are nutritious and make mealtime possibilities endless for breakfast, lunch and dinnertime. Of course, people enjoy treating themselves to delicious, tasty meals and in the dairy aisle you can find a variety of indulgent treats (from appetizers to desserts). For mealtime inspiration, visit www.EasyHomeMeals.com, and follow Easy Home Meals on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest This post is sponsored by Easy Home Meals, but all opinions are my own.

Summer Delight: Lemon-Walnut Bread

I developed this recipe for Lemon-Walnut Bread for National Dairy Month, and it’s wonderful! It’s better than any quick-bread I have ever tasted, and the combination of mascarpone, cream cheese and lemon create wonderful flavor and moist texture. When we tested this recipe, we could not stop eating it-just wait until you try it.
