Ovaltine Frozen Hot Chocolate & BBQ

Summer is in full session and there’s nothing my family loves more than a good swim party with friends.. and good food of course! Smile Recently Ovaltine sponsored a wholesome backyard BBQ where we got to try out their new *yummy* recipe. To be honest I had never tried Ovaltine before the party, but I thought it was really good. I made their frozen hot chocolate and it was delish!! It was the perfect summer treat! They also donated $250 to a summer camp of my choice which I thought was very generous. I decided to donate that money to the boy scouts summer camp. I know a lot of young boys in my neighborhood who it will benefit.

Yummy frozen hot chocolate

The kids sure enjoyed their frozen hot chocolate! My son slurped his so fast and was begging for more!

Carson and his friends also loved their new straws that Ovaltine sent us.

After lunch we had a good time swimming with our friends. Thanks to my awesome neighbors.. who always let us swim at their house. :) Ovaltine was so nice to throw in some fun toys for the kids to play with.

I love this picture of my son dumping water on his dad. He loves playing with his dad. The kids all had a great time swimming. In AZ, a BBQ swim party is definitely the best activity for summer!

YUM!!!

The thing I love about OVALTINE is it’s enriched with vitamins…making this recipe pretty healthy. Definitely a lot healthier than a chocolate milk shake! It’s a good source of 12 vitamins and minerals compared to chocolate syrup which offers 0% of the daily value.

Thanks to Mom It forward and Ovaltine for allowing me to participate in the Wholesome Backyard BBQ.

    I used to buy Ovaltine all the time but my kids drink SO MUCH MILK that I quit buying it. That frozen recipe looks delicious though!

    My kids lived off ovaltine for a year or two. We have taken a break from it and switched to Nesquick, but may just jump back to try out this recipe. I hear you on the vitamins, that is one reason why we used it so long, when my kiddos were not great eaters. Thanks for posting.

    First and foremost…. Thank you for donating the money to the Boy Scouts. My boys are both in Scouts – one about to become an Eagle. I can’t even begin to tell you what a wonderful program this is for the kids. Secondly thank you for sharing the recipe. I’ve heard of Frozen Hot Chocolate before, never tried it and have never dug for a recipe. I’m anxious to try it now. THANK YOU!
