I made these Baked Steak Taquitos for my family using some leftover steak and HERDEZ® Guacamole Salsa. We prefer flour tortillas to corn, but I did stuff the taquitos with leftover roasted corn, green onions, cilantro and cheese.

SIMPLY SWEET NO BAKE ENERGY BITES

A SIMPLE PANTRY

Since I’m always on the go, I’m taking my LALA® Yogurt Smoothies with me, as well as these super simple, super sweet, no bake energy bites. I can pop them in a baggie and stow them in my purse, then eat one when I need a bit more energy, so I’m not noshing on a bag of chips. The HEB Slim Down Showdown would not look too fondly on that.

STAY FIT PART 2 WITH LALA® YOGURT SMOOTHIES

LITTLE MIXICO

Lo Que Nos Hace Fuertes #FuertesconLeche

It’s important for kids to get protein at every meal, especially breakfast. Studies have shown that eating breakfast helps kids focus and concentrate better at school.  Milk contains nine essential nutrients in each glass and is a simple, delicious and wholesome way to give your kids a natural source of high-quality protein. You can pair your breakfast with a glass of milk for 8 grams of high-quality protein per 8 ounce glass or mix it into your favorite smoothie, overnight oats or breakfast recipe. Kids already love milk, so including it as part of a protein rich breakfast can be easy. Don't believe me? Check out some of these delicious recipe our Influencers created with milk to make us #FuertesConLeche.

Lemon Pancakes with Berry Compote

Mama Latina Tips

Giving the boys a breakfast with protein, I think, is the best way to start their day. I can see they have the energy they need and will run off to school contented and ready to learn. Of course, breakfast doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be as simple as a glass of milk with toast (each 8oz glass of milk has 9 essential nutrients including protein), or oatmeal made with milk, or a fruit licuado.

Easy Breakfast Frittata

Kinda Silly Mommy

It's a big responsibility as a parent to make sure that our little ones get the nutrients that their growing bodies need. Because, let's face it. If it were up to them, they would live off of a diet of cheddar fish and fruit snacks. It's important for kids to get protein at every meal, especially breakfast.  Did you know that milk has 9 essential nutrients in each glass? Milk is a natural source of high-quality protein and it doesn't even need to be served in a glass. It's so easy to add it to your meals, especially since you always have milk on hand.

Eggless Orange Blueberry Corn Bread

Mommy's Home Cooking

My kids really really really like milk. Since they wake up in the morning the first thing they ask for is a cup of warm milk. I love that they do because I know that It’s important for kids to get protein at every meal, especially breakfast. Plus, studies show eating breakfast helps kids focus and concentrate at school. With 9 essential nutrients in each glass, milk is a simple, delicious and wholesome way to give my kids a natural source of high-quality protein – plus other nutrients they need.

Promised Land Milk #FarFromOrdinary

The story of Promised Land Dairy starts with their cows. The most common, black and white, spotted Holstein cow produces 90% of the milk we drink here in the United States and less than 10% comes from unique Jersey cows, which come from the British Isle of Jersey and not the state New Jersey. Promised Land Dairy uses only milk from the Jersey cows and these cows are not only extraordinary, but the milk they produce is too. This milk is richer, creamier, and naturally higher in protein and calcium than ordinary milk. And it can help make life #FarFromOrdinary. Some of our Texas influencers share how they fell in love with Promised Land dairy products and how their milk is a staple in their homes.

Mexico in My Kitchen

I already enjoyed using the regular Promised Land Whole Milk in my home, but I had never tried the chocolate flavored version. To my surprise, it’s really creamy and tasty! 

Nessa's World

We made a trip to H-E-B this past weekends to pick up Promised Land Milk. Promised Land Milk isn't your ordinary milk, which is why I am sharing my top three reasons why Promised Land Milk is a staple in our household. 
 

Easy and Delish

The batter is made from pancake mix, an egg, butter, sugar, cocoa powder (optional), and Promise Land Midnight Chocolate Milk — which by the way is made with Natural Milk from the finest Jersey Cows. And no, these are not cows from New Jersey but the ones from the gorgeous British Isle of Jersey. 

Inspired by Familia

Use chocolate milk for a rich and creamy chocolate fudge pop. Just hop on over to your local H-E-B store and purchase Promised Land Milk. It’s a great choice because it’s higher in protein & calcium than ordinary milk. Milk is a staple in our house so it’s important to stock up on the right brand!

5 Savory Recipes To Pair With A Cold Glass of Milk

¿Leche ... con que? That's the question that #LatinaBloggers took inspiration from for the #MeGustaConLeche campaign with the California Milk Processor Board. When we think of milk we usually think about pairing it with something sweet, but #LatinaBloggers set out to create tasty recipes that provided us with an entirely new outlook on what tastes great with a fresh glass of milk! Latina and Latino bloggers helped their readers rediscovered their inner “adventurous eater” with an array of recipes that featured spicy and savory dishes. Did you know that for savory foods, the emulsifiers in milk attract themselves to the fat, dissolving them and allowing them to go down more easily? For spicy foods, milk contains casein; a fat loving compound that binds with spicy oils in chilies and washes 
them away making milk a great pairing for these flavor profiles. jalapeno poppers _ recipe _ theartmuse.me

The Art Muse 

"From my morning cafe con leche to our lunch and dinner, it’s no secret that we drink our fair share of milk in this house. But milk with peppers? Sure, why not? The Panko breadcrumbs and crispy bacon gave these poppers the perfect amount of crunch to go nicely with a cold glass of milk."

"Al llevar las meriendas, recordemos que estas deben ser unas que no se dañen por el calor y que se mantengan frescas durante el tiempo que los niños estén jugando. Llevar una hielera es una opción para mantener el Nesquik frío y listo para cuando sea la hora de tomar."

It's not a celebration without Cerveza Montejo

During the beginning of the year, Latina/Latino bloggers and creators shared hilarious videos and mouth-watering recipes in celebration of Cerveza Montejo's arrival to the U.S. Montejo is a golden lager beer with more than 100 years of Mexican brewing tradition that first made its entrance into the United States in September 2014. Montejo is still brewed at Cerveceria Modelo S. de R.L. de C.V. in Tuxtepec, Oaxaca, Mexico. Montejo's full-flavored, crisp taste makes it a great pairing for Mexican cuisine! So of course our Latina food and lifestyle bloggers took to the kitchen to share recipes with Montejo as an ingredient. Check out some of their creations below!
