How to hide vegetables in your kid's chocolate milk.

I finally found a way to make milk even better. By adding vegetables.

What? I know! I can't believe it myself.

How did we all not know that Macro Coco Greens and Macro Berri Reds existed? {Or, maybe YOU did and I'm the one doing the *head smack* right now.} MacroLife Naturals read my blog and saw that I'm always trying to sneak vegetables into everything (since Luka is the polar opposite of a vegetarian). They offered to help me with that.

Since the kid will always drink chocolate or pink milk, they offered to send us some of their chocolate milk and pink milk mix-in powders for Luka to try and it is MADE FROM VEGETABLES, PEOPLE.

Natural Life Macro Coco Greens and Macro Berri Reds.
This mix-in powder is filled with superfood ingredients such as organic raw cacao, acai, goji berry, mangosteen, cherry, apricot, pomegranate, blackberry, blueberry, boysenberry, persimmon, carrot, beet, spinach, barley grass, apple, and flax. Plus it contains Probiotics.

Both Macro Coco Greens and Macro Berri Reds use 70% less sugar than other conventional kid’s drink counterparts. Both are 100% natural and feature an ionic trace mineral blend that increases hydration. Each product is also gluten- and dairy-free.

You can find these on Amazon, at Whole Foods, Vitamin Shoppe, and in other independent health food stores.

For best results mixing.
The company recommends you mix your powder with just part of the milk (or almond, soy, or rice milk) in a shaker until it's mixed. Then add the rest of your milk.

We had best results mixing our powder with a couple of tablespoons of water from our hot water tap, making a syrup. Then we mixed that syrup with the milk.

In either case, since it's a powder, it is harder to mix in with your milk than if it were a syrup. Both of these mixing techniques overcome this.
