School lets out for my kids in less than two weeks. That means I have only a few more days to come up with summer activities and a meal plan. You may be wondering why I come up with a special “summer meal plan” and the reason is simple. If I don’t have some sort of plan in place my kids will end up eating junk food all summer long and that’s just not going to happen. Lunch and dinner are normally pretty easy to plan but breakfast is the meal I have the most trouble with. Thankfully with options at Walmart like Carnation Breakfast Essentials, I am able to give my kids a quick and easy breakfast that we both feel good about.
With the help of Carnation Breakfast Essentials my kids are able to have a delicious breakfast filled with 21 Vitamins & Minerals, 13g of Protein and as Much Calcium as a 6 oz cup of yogurt. Not only is Carnation Breakfast Essentials powder nutritious for kids, teens and adults but it’s super convenient and an easy solution for busy mornings.
To help jazz up our summer breakfast routine this past week I decided to come up with a delicious Strawberry-Banana & Chocolate Breakfast Smoothie perfect for those hot and lazy summer mornings. It took only a handful of nutritious ingredients and less than 5 minutes to make.
What you Need:
2 Packages of Rich Milk Chocolate Carnation Breakfast Essentials.
2 Cups of low-fat or skim milk
1 medium Banana sliced
3 large strawberries sliced
2 cups of ice (more if needed)
whipped cream and sprinkles (optional)
1. In a large blender fill it up about 3/4 of the way to the top.
2. Add milk and blend until smooth.
3. Add 2 packages of Carnation Breakfast Essentials. Mix well in blender.
4. Add in the strawberries, bananas, and almonds. Mix well in blender.
5. In a large glass add the breakfast shake. Top with whipped cream, sprinkles and a fresh strawberry.
6. Serve Immediately.
So of course the real test came when it was time to see if my kids would actually drink the smoothie. Aubrey is my super picky eater so I decided to put her to the test. She loves Carnation Breakfast Essentials so I figured she would really love this strawberry-banana & chocolate smoothie.
She loved the fact that she got to drink a “milkshake” for breakfast!
Kid Tested and Approved! Aubrey loves it.
