This Strawberry Shortcake Pudding Cups Recipe is the perfect way to make a packed lunch more fun and delicious. This is a partnered conversation with Mirum, all opinions are my own. #APlusEatsandDrinks #APlusEatsandDrinksSweeps
Going back to school or work after a break - holiday, summer, or otherwise, can be a struggle. It's easy to get used to lazy mornings, pajamas all day, and raiding the fridge whenever the mood strikes. Routine is good, it helps us (me especially!) be more productive and overall happy, but getting into routine is sometimes a bit of a beast. To ease the transition I love the idea of making lunch a little more special. Today we packed Strawberry Shortcake Pudding Cups, but the idea can translate to so many different flavors and mix-ins!
This is really more method than recipe, but really, how fun would it be for your kid or spouse to open their lunch and find this make-your-own strawberry shortcake pudding cup? If strawberries and cake aren't your thing (who are you?!), then maybe mini marshmallows and graham crackers, or bananas and peanut butter chips. There are so many cool ways to make lunch exciting and personalized.
To make the meal for fun (and to keep the cake from turning into a mush-fest. Put the ingredients separately into small containers. Then they can pile it all in however they want! I personally am a "get it all in there" kind of gal, but my oldest would probably pile a little bit of each on the spoon for every bite. I'd love to hear how you would eat yours!
