It's National Milk Day — the anniversary of the first time milk was delivered in bottles in 1878! A dietary must for our growing lil ones, milk can be a drink your kiddos either love or love to hate. If you battle with the latter more often than not, consider these five discreet ways to get them sippin'. From turning this calcium-packed drink into an Orange Julius or sweet hot cocoa, watch your tikes drink their way to strong without a fuss!
- Chocolate Milk: A favorite of both chocolate-lovers and kids! Instead of opting for store-bought, make your own with a spoonful of chocolate syrup or a scoop of a chocolate vitamin mix (like Ovaltine) for added nutrition. Stir it up with a magic milk straw for an extra dose of sweet!
- Milkshakes: Who doesn't love a thick, creamy milkshake? Although this treat can be packed with sugar, your kids can enjoy a daily dose of calcium with this healthy chocolate milkshake recipe.
- Orange Julius: This smooth and creamy drink made with orange juice and milk is a great alternative to cream sodas. Check out this frosty recipe that combines the best of fruit and dairy.
- Hot Chocolate: Your kids can decadently enjoy a glass of milk by sipping on hot cocoa. Use a simple powder or these fun hot-chocolate sticks, then top with a few marshmallows. Mmmm toasty.
- Cereal: Sounds basic, but get your kids to enjoy milk in cereal. If your kids usually don't have cereal for breakfast or only use it as an on-the-go snack, serve up cereal in a big bowl of milk and watch them start to sip!
The toasted marshmallow milkshakes at Good Stuff Eatery in DC are the best milkshakes I've ever had. So I was super excited when I found the recipe on Joy the Baker's blog. Each milkshake has actual toasted marshmallows in it, plus ice cream and milk and another marshmallow on top. It's super easy and quick to make your own.

One of the guys here at the Sugar HQ has been seriously craving milkshakes. He's talked about milkshakes so much that now I want one! Not just any old shake though, I'm hungry for a glorified adult one. This St. Patrick's Day version with a chocolate stout sauce is made by combining store-bought hot fudge with thick creamy beer. It would be an excellent conclusion to a St Patrick's Day dinner and loads of fun if served in shot glasses at a larger party. Sound scrumptious? Check out the recipe when you read more
