Chillin’ in the Heat With Kikkoman
Summer’s here and the kids are out of school, but their appetites aren’t on vacation! With swimming, picnics, trips and outdoor activities galore, you’ll want to have plenty of healthy, energy-boosting snacks on hand. But when temperatures soar, you don’t want to spend sunny days in a hot kitchen, so Kikkoman has come up with some easy-to-make, fun-to-eat recipe ideas that will keep your kids happy and your kitchen cool.
- Chill out with ice-cold Kikkoman Pearl® Organic Soymilk. Keep a couple of cartons in the fridge for instant refreshment—it includes protein and calcium and comes in great flavors that kids love, like chocolate and creamy vanilla. It’s also perfect for frozen pops or for smoothies, like this delectable Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake.
- Snacks that pack and travel well are a must for summer outings or day trips. Make a batch of Aloha Trail Mix —a tasty medley of nuts, cereal and dried fruit seasoned with Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce— and portion in small sealable plastic bags that your kids can grab on the go.
- Summertime is picnic time! Pasta salad is a winner with kids and adults alike, especially when it’s loaded with colorful fresh vegetables. This Minestrone Pasta Salad has the added nutritional benefits of kidney beans and has a tangy dressing made with Kikkoman Soy Sauce and lemon juice.
