I love having traditions. I love them so much that I think they shouldn’t just be reserved for holidays, but should be worked into everyday life as well. Traditions don’t have to be big, expensive, or take much time. Instead, they’re just a great way to build time into your busy schedule to do things that are fun and intentional as a family!

One of our recent traditions that our family loves is having “Fun Friday” each week to celebrate the end of the week and the start of the weekend together. By the end of the week, we’re all needing a break, so the perfect way to start out our Fun Fridays  is with a quick, easy, and special breakfast that I’ve made ahead of time that we can enjoy together. Like most moms I love using “sneaky” recipes that get us all the nutrition we need, while also being delicious and easy. I love keeping items like Carnation Breakfast Essentials always stocked up in our pantry for days like our Fun Fridays, and to use as a drink throughout the week. It’s great for the whole family and is as easy as mixing the powder with a glass of milk. Lately, I’ve discovered several different ways to use it as well like adding it to smoothies and using it for baking, and today I’ll be sharing our favorite with you!

Another way we celebrate fun Friday is stopping at an amazing park and letting the kids play after I pick them up from school on Friday afternoon. They anxiously count down the days each week in anticipation of all the fun they’ll have and the new friends they’ll make. This fun tradition conveniently works into our busy schedules, gets the kids outside and playing, not to mention it’s free!

With just these few, fun, simple things you can take a normal weekday and turn it into a special tradition full of everyday magic that creates amazing memories. Here’s the promised recipe that you’ll need to start off your own amazing tradition. We love the chocolate spin on it, but feel free to purchase any of the other Carnation Breakfast Essentials flavors like Vanilla or Dark Chocolate to substitute in for a new, delicious flavor every time you bake it!

    1. You need to!!! It’s delicious–kind of like banana bread but you can’t taste the zucchinni at all, so it basically tastes like a sweet breakfast bread with lots of yumminess inside!
