And you’ve probably had your fair share of making them. But let me reassure you that this recipe is unlike any of them. In fact, it might very well taste just like a previous smoothie you’ve made; however, this recipe is packed with a super powerful antioxidant that will help support your child’s immune system. So if your kiddo tends to get sick often or you’re just looking for a natural way to prevent them from getting sick, this ones for you mama. I’ll be sharing what the secret ingredient is with you in a bit but before we get to that, I wanted to share my testimony.

 

Our girls were getting sick constantly more so since our oldest is now in Elementary School and brings home all the school germs with her. It was doctor appointment after doctor appointment and rounds of antibiotics that I realized I needed to put an end to it. So at my wits end, I started to search online for natural alternatives to build up their immune system. I saw the usual probiotics and vitamins which I had previously tried and yes it helped a bit but it did not prevent them from getting sick still.

 

So while at a conference, I came across a booth that had an elderberry crystal. They mentioned how great it was for the immune system. My ears perked up and I immediately asked if they had any for kids. And to my surprise, they did! They gave me a handful of samples to take home and try out. That very same day when I got home from my conference and made smoothies with it. Trust me when I say my girls did not even notice it in their smoothies. It’s been 3 months we’ve been using it and have not gotten sick since. So you bet I’ve stocked up on this powerful antioxidant.

And if you’re kiddos are not really into smoothies, make popsicles out of them or add the crystals to a berry yogurt and even juice. 😉

    Your story is like our story. We should have VIP parking at the doctors office as we have not missed much since November. I’ve tried everything natural because I’m done with antibiotics for my little ones so frequently. Can’t wait to try this. Thank you for sharing!

  • A child can teach an adult three things 1️⃣ To be happy for no reason. 2️⃣ To always be busy with something. 3️⃣ And to know how to demand with all their might that which they desire. — Paulo Coelho 😆 Isn’t that the truth? When was the last time you were happy for no reason? Or even looked at something differently than you normally would? #foodforthought #disneyfamilia

You guys, today is our last day of “holiday vacation.” We had such a fun time creating family memories but now it’s time for Mia to go back to school — aka back to the routine. 🤪So today, I’m focusing on getting organized & making our crazy mornings less stressful. Send me all your tips please. ☺️😘 And a big thank to @verizon for always giving us the best connection to share our family memories with you. ☺️😘 #brandpartner #bettermatters #sundayvibes #sundayfunday #makingmemoriestogether
  • Making memories and breaking records over here. @disneyland 🏰 twice in one week.😂😅 Bummed the castle is blocked off so a pic with the astro orbiter will do. .
.
And my oldest no longer wants to match and she picked out this entire outfit. I have to admit though, I’m loving her style and taking notes. 📝 😊🤩 What are you guys up to this weekend? #disneyfamilia #makingmemories
  • #sponsored What if I told you that you can go shopping at Sam's Club, scan items with your smart phone as you put them into your basket and then push "Check out" and "Pay" right then and there?  Say bye-bye to the check out line with the Sam's Club Scan & Go App. I can't even tell you how genius this is and so needed for us mamas that always on-the-go with kids in tow. . .

Plus, we're currently loving all the fresh & organic produce. We made this quick healthy quinoa berry salad w/ homemade Cara Cara orange dressing using the items we grabbed in our last Scan & Go run. .

Ingredients: Organic Quinoa, Blueberry, Blackberry, Raspberries, Strawberries, Baby Spinach, Cara Cara Oranges, Raw Unfiltered Honey, Salt/Pepper, Organic Member's Mark EVO. *Pricing may vary by location @samsclub #momlife #samsclub
