Healthy Orange Juice Mocktail for your favorite kids, a drink packed with fruits, juice, and omega-3’s! Perfect as a Breakfast Mocktail, after school snack, or brunch!
Orange Juice Breakfast Mocktail
When my siblings and I were kids my mom would treat us with ‘fancy’ orange juice every so often as a fun snack/treat.
Do you know what ‘fancy orange juice’ contained?
Orange juice and sliced up bananas, that’s it.
But I love it SO much! Seriously something that simple brought me so much joy as a youngster. So much so it is still something I happily recall as an adult with my own kids. It brings me peace of mind that most things can be simple and still bring so much joy.
So now that I am a mom of two adorable children I got excited when it dawned on me that I could make ‘fancy orange juice’ with our beloved Barlean’s Omega Pals.
I even went one step further and added a few more fruits that my kids love turning it into an Orange Juice Mocktail that not only my kids love but is giving them some seriously delicious omega-3s!
We already love using our Omega Pals for our Tropical Energy Bites and now we have a new fun recipe for our omega-3s.
If you are new to the world of Omega Pals find out more info on the seriously delicious supplements on Barlean’s Website. Find out info on Omega-3s, emulsification, and more!
I love the piece of mind that my kids are getting the help their growing bodies and minds need with Omega Pals!
How to make your own ‘Fancy’ Orange Juice Mocktail
First off if you don’t have your hands on some Omega Pals yet getting some is step one.
Order some online:
Next get Orange Juice (I recommend an all natural variety) and fruit!
Now I go with banana, strawberry, and orange in my mocktail, but feel free to pick your kids favorite!
Now making these drinks couldn’t be any easier!
Slice & dice the fruit into bite size pieces, cut enough to fill your kids cups.
Add 1 teaspoon of the Omega Pals to each cup. Pour in a few tablespoons of orange juice, this doesn’t have to be exact just enough orange juice to mix the Omega Pal into the juice. Stir the juice and Omega Pals togther until fully combined.
Add an assortment of the cut up fruit into the cup.
Top the rest of the cup up with the orange juice and stir to mix.
Serve immediately! I recommend giving the kids Paper Straws & spoon to use as they wish.
Between both of my boys one likes to go for the fruit first and the other likes to go for the juice first, everyone is different!
I think this fun juice beverage for kids can be used in so many occasions!
