Carnation Breakfast Smoothies-a fast and tasty way to start off the day!
School started back for us this week. Do you realize how early 5 am is? My older 2 have to be at the bus stop before 5:45 am. In my opinion, it’s just too early. I have to tell you, my kids have been amazing about getting up, getting showered, dressed, and ready for school.
The kids like to buy school lunch so I have a drink and snacks for them to take just in case they get hungry during the day.
As for breakfast, it’s hard to eat a heavy meal so early and honestly, the odds of me cooking breakfast at 5am? Um, nope, not gonna happen. There’s cereal in the cabinet but really, my kids aren’t awake enough to go to the effort.
They still Need to have something. I don’t even have to mention all the studies about a good breakfast and learning, it’s all true.
Carnation Breakfast Essentials has been around since I was a kid. My mom was a working single parent (and a terrible cook.) Needless to say, my sister and I were on our own when it came to breakfast which was fine with us.
Being able to make our drink and take it with us, awesome! We didn’t care about the needed vitamins and minerals provided by our breakfast drink, we just loved the taste, like drinking a milkshake for breakfast!
Carnation still provides that same great taste but especially for the first week of school, I wanted to kick it up a notch.
So simple, almost easier than just making the drink, really. Put everything in the blender, blend for 30-45 seconds and done, no spoon or stirring required. Quick and easy meal, in a glass!
Not just for breakfast, these smoothies are also a great afternoon snack!
And this is how I start my day!
Mama doesn’t function without her morning coffee! Coffee-mate offers so many flavors but my 2 favorite are the French Vanilla and the Cafe Mocha.
