Winter Activities and TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk

by Laura

When the weather outside is frightful, can you find something to do as a family that everyone finds delightful?

Do you like to do some of the top outdoor wintertime activity like most Americans? Top one is building a snowman, followed by starting a snowball fight and sledding. Our family likes to build a snow man, but it seems like we are only out there for a short amount of time and the kids are cold and want to go in.

How about a snowball fight?

We have never been a family who likes to snowball fight but maybe in inside version would be fun. However, it does concern me that something might end up broken. My boys enjoyed it when they were younger but the mom in me always worries about injuries.

Also, my boys did some sledding when they were younger but really aren’t in to it now that they are 15 and 18. My daughter went sledding with some friends last year and asked them recently if they were going to go again this year. Then proceeded to tell them that she didn’t want to go this year, but maybe another year.

We have wanted to go tubbing as a family. There are some awesome places to go here in Utah like Soldier Hollow or Gorgoza. That was out though for this year, since my husband had his neck fused in October and is still recovering from that procedure.

Indoor activities were more up our alley for this year. Watching movies tops the list of Americans’ favorite indoor winter activities, followed by reading books and playing games.

We love to watch movies as a family. We like to watch them at home too because then we can talk during the movie, pause it if needed (like for a potty break), or rewind it because someone missed something.

However, we do that often and I recently wanted to have the family play some games together for a winter activity. Since we have a range of ages , 18, 15, and 11, it is a little bit hard to find games that everyone can enjoy playing. I have found these 3 to be all around winners with everyone – Blokus, Pic Wits, and Wold Series Yatzee.

Winter Games

Whenever we have a family activity we also like to have food too. When we had our game day, we had TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk. TruMoo is our favorite chocolate milk but we wanted to try the seasonal marshmallow version. We have had it before cold but wanted to heat it up this time so we could have hot chocolate marshmallow milk. Did you know that nearly 70 percent of Americans agree that hot chocolate is the drink that reminds them most of their childhood?

It was delish hot. We just warmed each mug full of TruMoo in the microwave for about a minute. My family also likes to have donuts with chocolate milk or hot chocolate so I had those available too.

Like regular TruMoo, TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk is made with wholesome low-fat white milk, no artificial growth hormones or high fructose corn syrup, and is brought to you by your trusted local dairy.

I am also excited to try out some other ways to enjoy TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk like with their recipes for Gingerbread Hot Chocolate and Rocky Road Hot Chocolate. I have included both recipes if you want to try them out too.
