Blender Vanilla Cappuccino

cappuccino

I’ve cut back on my caffeine intake – most days I don’t have any – but there are some mornings or afternoons that require a little pick-me-up. Being pregnant is tiring in and of itself, but being pregnant (especially in the third trimester; 5 weeks to go!) with an almost-three-year-old is downright exhausting.

Thank goodness for preschool (Lily goes 2 days a week for 2 1/2 hours, and she loves it!) and for this cappuccino, which has become my go-to caffeinated beverage.

The recipe calls for just three ingredients and a high-speed blender, such as a Vitamix. You can probably get away with using a regular blender, but you might not get the same amount of frothiness; and let’s be honest, cappuccinos are all about the foam!

fiber gummies

Having a tough time getting your kiddos to get their recommended amount of daily fiber? L’il Critters Fiber Gummy Bears are the perfect answer to help you to achieve that goal.

We have been big fans of the L’il Critters™ Gummy Vites Complete for almost a year now, so when I was offered the chance to review the L’il Critters™ Fiber Gummy Bears, I of course said yes. My 2 1/2 year old was excited right off the bat when I unwrapped the yellow-lidded jar of supplements, calling them her “new gummies”. Lily likes the taste, and requests her “gummies” first thing pretty much every morning. L’il Critters™ is rooted in the belief that healthy habits should be enjoyable, and Lily has demonstrated that these fiber gummy bears fit the bill!

Each serving of L’il Critters™ Fiber Gummy Bears provides 3 grams of fiber (as much fiber as four prunes). The gummy bears are free of sugar, high fructose corn syrup, synthetic (FD&C) dyes, and gluten. The probiotic fiber can help to support the digestive health of your child/children.* The gummy bears come in a trio of fruit flavors that any kid is sure to love, and they are fun to eat unlike some of the chalky tablets or liquid supplements on the market geared towards kids. L’il Critters™ Fiber Gummy Bears are available at club, mass, drug, and grocery stores nationwide including: Costco, Walmart, Target, and Walgreens. We have quickly and enthusiastically incorporated L’il Critters™ into our daily routine; maybe it’s time that you do as well!
