Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to shower her with love. As a mom, it’s really meaningful when my family makes Mother’s Day extra special.
Read on to learn how you can pull off a memorable Mother’s Day brunch with the help of ALDI, where you get the best quality at the best price so you don’t “break the bank.”
Find out how you can enter to win a $50 gift ALDI gift card plus a signed copy of my book, Body Kindness in this post all about celebrating mom and all the moms-to-be in your life.
Delight Mom with a Memorable Brunch
Whether Mom prefers breakfast in bed or a family brunch around the table, you’ll delight her with this Spinach and Turkey Egg Casserole. First spread cooked ground turkey in a baking pan, next add your broccoli, red pepper and baby spinach. Then add your eggs – so simple! Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. When it’s done, uncover and sprinkle with feta cheese and bake uncovered for about another 20 minutes. Breakfast never looked so good!
Shopping at ALDI can help introduce your family to better-for-you foods, whether it’s a new vegetable in this casserole or a new – healthier – way of preparing a favorite recipe.
Bake Up a Batch of Love
What could be a better Mother’s Day treat than a healthy, delicious cookie! Here we have Berry Breakfast Cookies, which everyone loves to eat and the kids will love to help make. These cookies are made with bananas, almond milk, crunchy peanut butter, sweet dried berries and oats and they cook up in about 30 minutes. This is something you can do ahead of time on the weekend.
I also used SimplyNature Organic Coconut Oil in the cookies. Simply Nature has nearly 200 everyday products AND all SimplyNature products are free of 125 artificial ingredients and are either organic or verified by the Non-GMO Project.
Build a Yogurt Sundae Bar
Who says sundaes can’t be healthy. This is a Yogurt Sundae made with fresh fruit, yogurt and granola and great for any special Mother’s Day occasion. The granola happens to be from the liveGfree line, making it a safe gluten-free option. For shoppers who need or want to avoid gluten, ALDI has a full line of gluten-free products, from yummy cake mixes to fresh bakery bread, all under the exclusive liveGfree brand.
What I love about these Yogurt Sundaes is you make your own fruit flavored yogurt by blending plain yogurt with Specialty Selected fruit spreads.
Raise a Glass to Mom
Celebrate mom by serving up a colorful display with a Mimosa Bar for the adults and fun mocktails for the kids too. You may not know, ALDI stores offer award-winning wines and world-class beers for the perfect twist to elevate your traditional mimosa!
Give mom the rest and relaxation she deserves and let your guest create their own cocktails. Pick up a few bottles of Arosa Sparkling Moscato Rosé and the award-winning Chiaré Blanc de Blanc from ALDI.
Keep your bubbly chilled in an ice bucket. Then add carafes of juices, like Nature’s Nectar Raspberry Lemonade, Nature’s Nectar 100% Blendz Peach and Mango, and Nature’s Nectar Premium Orange Juice Not from Concentrate. Don’t forget to serve fresh fruit, like lemons, raspberries, strawberries and oranges for pretty garnishes.
If you’re looking for a non-alcoholic option, this Mango Strawberry Sunset Smoothie is a perfect drink to brighten your Mother’s Day. It’s made with fresh strawberries, mango, vanilla Greek yogurt, and Agave Nectar.
In a blender you combine mango with yogurt and agave to create the yellow layer, to make the pink color, swap out the mango for strawberries. Save some fresh fruit to add for a colorful garnish.
