Being a mom is hard work. The hours are crazy, the labor is intense and between cleaning poop off the wall for the millionth time and being subjected to Caliou torture sometimes I want to run away screaming. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade my momness for the world, but sometimes I need a break! I need to be able to put my feet up, sit back and enjoy my adulthood for the sake of my sanity. Guess what? This week I actually did it!
My idea of relaxing is to lounge around outside reading a good book, sipping a yummy cocktail and being left alone. That is how I reconnect with myself and shrug off all of the stress that constantly builds up in my mind. This week has been a crazy one, so when my husband got home from work yesterday I handed him the baby and told him I was taking the day off. Before heading outside with my sunglasses and a book I whipped up a ridiculously easy 3 ingredient cocktail that I MUST share with you! Seriously, it was so good I even gave it a name! This recipe makes two servings, but if you need more just double the ingredients.
Mama’s Fruti Caribbean Cooler:
- 1/2 Cup Bacardi Pineapple Fusion. Regular Bacardi is fine, I just had this one on hand.
- 2 Fruti natural fruit bars – I used Pina Colada and Caribbean but any flavor will do.
- Hand full of chopped pineapple
Set out your Fruti bars 10-15 minutes before you start so they can get a little soft. Once they are ready combine all three ingredients and blend for roughly a minute.
Pour, garnish if you like and enjoy! See how simple that was?! This #freshnfruti concoction is my new go-to for adult beverages and I am pretty sure it will be yours too!
The Fruti bars are the star of the show here. I originally bought them to be a healthier snack alternative for Judah, but it was cocktail time and I didn’t have anything else to use so I grabbed two and hoped for the best. I wasn’t too sure about them at first (Ok, I was really thinking rum and popsicles? Together? Won’t that be a disasterous sugary nightmare?) but I was wrong. Their flavor and sweetness comes from being made of premium fresh fruit, not tons of sugar like other frozen treat brands. These all natural frozen treats are also non GMO certified and HFCS free so I can confidently serve them to my whole family without worrying about scary chemicals.
Speaking of the whole family, Judah goes crazy over these frozen fruit bars! I don’t like for him to eat many sweets but since these are packed with so much fruit ( and no HFCS) I will happily let him snack on them. He likes them all so much that he even has a hard time choosing which one to eat!
If you want to check out Fruti for yourself and get some summer snack inspiration, head to your local Sam’s club on May 13th to catch a demo pairing Fruti with yogurt. Visit their Facebook page to learn more.
