Dessert, Snack or Breakfast

My 12-year-old is on a mission to gain weight – doctor’s orders. We don’t want to do this through cheeseburgers and chips. Instead, we are trying to do it the healthy way – lots of protein, loaded with nutrients and calories.

Joey usually isn’t hungry in the morning or just doesn’t want to take the time to eat. So we wanted to come up with something simple and delicious.

What you need:

Graham crackers

Jif All Natural Peanut Butter

Instant Chocolate Pudding – Follow box instructions using 2% or whole milk

Spread 1 Tbs of Peanut butter and a heaping Tbs of chocolate pudding on a graham cracker. Top it off with another graham cracker. Repeat until you make desired amount. Put them in an airtight container in the freezer. Chill four hours. They will keep in the freezer for a few weeks.

Joey also loves grabbing these as a quick snack or dessert. They are high in calcium and protein.
