It’s hard to believe this Blackberry Cobbler Smoothie is good for you. It’s antioxidant rich with blackberries and fiber-full with oats. Dessert for breakfast? Yes!
Have you tween parents heard of Musical.ly yet? If not, you will soon. Why didn’t I invent this app? It’s taking the kid world by storm and mine are obsessed. In fact, we are having some serious arguments about how to get our electronic time under control. In this app, kids take videos of themselves lip syncing, dancing and doing short videos. It’s a video community meaning you have a profile and your friends can like you and make comments.
So is Musical.ly safe? Well, I think yes if you keep your profile private and you trust your kid’s friends. That way only the chosen followers can comment. Otherwise, you may get some racy comments from strangers. Not to mention, you want to make sure that if your profile is not private, your kids know to never share any personal information!
The other issue with Musical.ly is the content. There is plenty of bad language and sexual content, meaning girls in inappropriate outfits and songs with bad language. Your kids can search any video so there isn’t much you can do about that. That’s why it’s rated 12+.
When the stress of raising tweens in this crazy electronic world become too much for you, sit back, relax and fill your belly with a Blackberry Cobbler Smoothie. The antioxidants and fiber will keep you healthy so you can stay on it. This parenting thing I mean; it’s not for the faint of heart.
This Blackberry Cobbler has all the best of your mom’s favorite cobbler recipe: oatmeal, fresh berries and a dash of cinnamon. Using almond milk is a win because blackberries and almonds are a match made in heaven. Here are some other treats with this winning combination…
