Looking for a fun and simple idea for a festive St. Patrick’s Day breakfast? This idea for fun St. Patrick’s Day food I shared last year (green milk + Lucky Charms), has taken off on Pinterest! I am so tickled that everyone likes my super simple idea that I wanted to share another one with you. It will take you about 3 minutes to make and will put a big smile on your kiddos face.
You will need: A cup, a stir stick, and 6 pieces of Frootloop cereal
It’s as simple as it looks, really.
Make your green milk (just add food coloring), assemble a stir stick with your Frootloops. DONE!
Add a little special touch and print this little guy out to place near the glass. Simply, right click + save to your computer. Then, open in a word doc and print.
I really am a sucker for a pretty cocktail, especially a festive or holiday cocktails. So when Sierra Mist asked me to test out two of their festive holiday cocktails all I could say was …. “get me my shaker!”
I was really eager to test out these two unique cocktails because although I like a little fizz in my drink — I am not a fan of sugary sodas. Sierra Mist seemed like a great alternative since it is made with real sugar, no artificial ingredients and is 100% natural flavoring.
So, I put my mixologist’s hat on and created these:
Pretty, right? Say hello to Meet me at the Mist-letoe & Frost Bite.

The mason jar trend is nothing new, but it still seems to be going strong (and in my book still adorable!). From sweets to snacks, drinks to meals — I love all mason jar recipes. Here are a few I’ve spotted that I can’t wait to try.
By serving the parfaits in fancy glasses such as martini glasses, they are sure to be a hit at any party! In addition, they would make the perfect breakfast on the go as well as a healthy snack that kiddos are sure to love.
32 oz low fat Vanilla Yogurt
12oz granola, I recommend blueberry crunch
Fresh strawberries (cut into small pieces), raspberries and blueberries
¼ cup of orange juice
1 tablespoon Maple syrup
1/8 of a cup of water
To make the berry sauce:
Add a handful of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries to a sauté pan over medium heat. Add orange juice and maple syrup and mix continuously. When the mixture begins to bubble, add your water to avoid the sauce from sticking to the pan. Once the mixture is of a sauce consistency, remove from the stove and allow to cool.
Add yogurt to 1/3 of your glass. Add a few fresh berries and top with the berry sauce and coat berries evenly. Add another layer of vanilla yogurt. Top with granola. Makes 4 – 6 servings
