Berry Cereal Milkshakes

Surprise someone special with Berry Cereal Milkshakes. They're incredible! Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

Everyone has a different relationship with cereal. I ate a lot of it growing up. Well, at least I tried to. My mom was the type to avoid buying sugary colored cereal.  It wasn’t because of the high fructose corn syrup, the dyes or wheat. She bought us sugary cereal sparingly because whenever she brought home a box of junk cereal, we pounced on it like savages. My brothers would split a regular box of cereal between the two of them in minutes in the morning. Can you imagine how fast sugary cereal would go?  All this meant for me is that I had to fight for cereal. If I missed the window, I didn’t have any. But I did know which bowl in the cupboard to use. It was one that looked small but was actually quite deep. I’ve always tried to fly under the radar…..

Today I’m the mom that doesn’t want to buy my child all the crazy sugary cereals mostly because I don’t want to deal with my son hopped up on sugar.  I also stay away from cereal that have high fructose corn syrup and synthetic colors because I don’t see the point in them being in my kid’s cereal.

To follow in my mom’s footsteps, I am the mom who will randomly splurge my kid with something indulgent to surprise him.  I like to give Cooper those moments of OMG WHAT IS MY MOM THINKING? At least that’s my goal- ha!

So, the other day after we spent the afternoon at the library reading, we came home and I treated Cooper to this cereal milkshake. Dessert before dinner? Mom was definitely having a moment.  You gotta keep them on their toes!

Now, Casey isn’t a beach person like I am. Where he sees ALL THE SAND and how it sticks to EVERYTHING, I see adventure and a chance for me to clear my head.

He went out of his way to go to the beach because I needed an adventure, so I made up for it with this Quick Tomato Basil Pasta when we got home. An even trade for a beach adventure? Suuuuure. Why not? We’ll go to the beach like every single week now, right Casey?

Exploit tomato season and get on it! Or just make the tomato part and top it with crusty grilled bread and maybe some fresh mozzarella? YES.
