Nothing says summer like a head cold, right? No? You’re right, I think there is nothing worse than being sick during the summer. All that beautiful weather and you want nothing more than to go back to bed. With my three boys, I can’t afford to get sick. There’s enough chaos in my life without adding illness to it. I’ve got to stay healthy and hydrated to keep up with my family!
For the past year, every time my boys started sniffling or Mr Napping complained of a sore throat, I reached for my secret stash of Emergen-C. I was only sick three times this past year, which is a big deal since it was our first year with a kiddo in public school (and public school germs!). Big J seemed like he was always sick, especially this past winter, the poor kid.
When Little J started sniffling and coughing last week and Big J woke up two days before school got out with a cough, I started hitting the Vitamin C as a preventative measure. We’ve got a busy summer ahead and I definitely don’t intent to start it with a head cold! While I enjoy the Raspberry Emergen-C mixed as directed on the box, in honor of summer, I decided to try it as a float. It was a pretty delectable way to get my vitamins in.
STAY HEALTHY AND HYDRATED
RASPBERRY VANILLA FLOAT
- 1 packet Emergen-C Raspberry flavor
- 4-6 ounces of water
- Vanilla ice cream
- Chocolate syrup (optional)
- Fresh fruit (optional)
- In a small cup, mix the water and packet of Emergen-C together and stir until combined.
- In a larger cup (approximately 10-12 oz), place about ½ cup of vanilla ice cream in the bottom.
- Slowly pour the Emergen-C over the ice cream. Drizzle chocolate syrup over the ice cream if desired. Garnish with fresh fruit, if desired.
This was a super fun way to get my vitamins in, perfect for the hot weather here in the desert. Want a little extra treat, drizzle the top with chocolate. Because who doesn’t like chocolate raspberries? I love that not only does this taste great and have the super boost of Vitamin C, it’s got other vitamins and minerals too. The electrolytes are awesome post-workout to help re-hydrate you and the ice cream will help you cool down. Emergen-C encourages me to drink more, which is always a good thing! The 7 B Vitamins also help enhance energy naturally, which is always a plus for me. With my little whirlwind kiddos, I need all the energy I can get!
You can find Emergen-C at Walgreens; and, during the month of June, you can get a 30-count Emergen-C pack and a FREE 1-liter bottle of Dasani water. I found my pack of Emergen-C in the health department, near the other vitamins. The water was just down the aisle in the cooler – cold and ready to drink!
