The girls are finally on summer break and what’s better than milkshake to kick off their summer recess. This Kid-Friendly Piña Colada Milkshake is a delicious and tropical indulgent that’s super easy to make. It’s a nice way for them to beat the heat while enjoying the long summer day. Who knew milk and pineapple could pack such a punch. Speaking of milk. Did you know that Milk is one of the most-requested items by food banks? Yet, it’s the least donated item. I am guilty of this as well; I have given canned, and dry goods in the past but not once have I ever thought to give them milk. Whereas more than 22 million children may miss out on milk’s nutrition this summer. It’s an essential part to ensure kids can play, learn and grow this summer. Yep, the simple things we take for granted.
Here is how you can help – Donate to milklife.com/give by donating you will be helping a child in your community. Your donation could be as little as $5, but it will deliver a highly desired and nutrient-rich gallon of fresh milk to children who need it the most.
The Great American Milk Drive, a collaborative effort between Feeding America, America’s dairy farmers and milk companies, turns online donations into gallons of milk for families in local communities. To date, the program has provided more than 12 million servings of milk to families across the country.
