Our mornings are usually so super hectic. Even if we wake up way before 7 am, we still end up rushing through every single morning steps.
Can you relate?
I am a night owl, as blog work happens after the boys are asleep and most nights I am not getting my eyes closed until 1 am….and because of this, I have to admit the truth; sometimes I hit the alarm twice before I can open my puffy eyes in the morning.
That’s when quick dress up and breakfast on the go happens!
I believe that breakfast is important. And to have a good and nutritious breakfast is even more important. On the days when I hit the clock twice and breakfast needs to be fast, we whip up a quick smoothie using fresh fruits and Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Powder that I usually pick up at my local Kroger while I am doing my groceries.
One of my very favorite family activities in a spring is to go to pick fresh strawberries on a local farm. This fun family day just happened to be last weekend and we still have almost a full box of fresh strawberries in the refrigerator. I used some of these strawberries for a morning smoothie the other day.
As the warm weather kicked in here in VA my blender is out on my counter top and pretty much used on a daily basis. I love the convenience of these breakfast smoothies and just as probably every kids my kids always love to be in the kitchen with me and they are especially love helping me putting ingredients in to the blender.
- 1 cup fresh strawberries
- 1 packet Carnation Breakfast Essentials Mix (Rich Milk Chocolate )
- ½ cup ice cubes
- ½ cup milk
- 1 tsp. cocoa powder to garnish(optional)
- Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Garnish with fresh strawberry and cocoa powder.
This excellent smoothie is a wonderful start for my kids in the morning as it provides great nutritional benefits:
o 21 Vitamins & Minerals
o 13 g of Protein
o As Much Calcium as a 6 oz cup of yogurt
And it’s not only nutritious but Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Powder also has a great taste that comes in many flavors, such as Rich Milk Chocolate, Classic French Vanilla, Classic Chocolate Malt, Dark Chocolate, Strawberry Sensation, and the Variety Pack (which has multiple flavors).
So we have these busy, hectic mornings
we are out the door, off to school with a nutritious smoothie in our hands in no time!
