Being a mom is hectic. Especially when you have to prep dinner every night after a long day of work. For us, we try to eat fairly healthy but that can be complicated with a picky four year old. Trying to appease a four year old’s appetite can leave any mama exhausted and stressed so for this Friday fun meal time, we are adding an adult beverage to our meal time.  Ocean Spray® Mocktails can be served alcoholic and non alcoholic so if you have a bun in the oven or are currently breastfeeding, you can try this drink recipe sans alcohol…but believe me, we won’t judge you if you indulge just a bit! 

For dinner tonight, we are making Avocado Salad topped with trout with our Ocean Spray® Mocktails Cranberry Sangria. Can you say delish? Check out our recipes below and make a meal for your family! Remember, it’s not safe to consume any alcoholic beverages while pregnant!

Ocean Spray® Cranberry Sangria

– One part wine (pick your fave!)
– Two parts ​Ocean Spray® Cranberry Sangria
– One sliced lemon
– Handful of blueberries

Mix together all ingredients, adding blueberries to your drink. Top off with a strawberry and lemon wedge. Serve over ice!

Avocado Kale Salad Topped with Trout
