I’ve talked many times before that quick and healthy breakfast ideas are worth their weight in gold at our house. With a new baby, it can be hard to find the time to feed myself! I’ve discovered that a good morning smoothie can be packed with vitamins and minerals to help me power through the day and be super mom to my 2 littles. I’m looking at some healthier options to shed some pounds before summer hits. So this memorial weekend, I started making myself morning shakes using Carnation Breakfast Essentials and frozen fruit.
I’m so happy that I decided to try Carnation Breakfast Essentials after spotting it at Kroger a few weeks back. Since the criteria I’m looking for in a breakfast is quick, easy and nutritious, I thought I’d see how a smoothie would be using it as a base.
Ingredients are simple – milk, Carnation Breakfast Essentials, frozen cherries & ice cubes.
In my blender, I mixed up 9 leveled off tablespoons of Carnation Breakfast Essentials, 1 1/2 cups of milk, 1/2 cup of frozen cherries and 1 cup of ice. After about 30-40 seconds of ice crushing / blending, I poured it into a cup and gave it a try and couldn’t be more pleased with my chocolate-cherry morning shake. It’s definitely become a good reason to wake up and get started with my day on a healthy note.
Here’s JP with his crazy morning hair while I sip on my chocolate cherry smoothie!
