Hey guys! Woo it is getting warm out there isn’t it?! Now not only am I a busy mama in the morning, now I’m a hot and busy mama in the morning. Running around trying to get everything in order in the morning can be a struggle on a normal day but throw in the heat factor and I’m exhausted before lunchtime. So when it comes to breakfast, I put away the skillet and pancakes and reach for something cool, refreshing and filling to get me through the rest of day.
When I do my shopping at Kroger I love to grab a few boxes of Carnation Breakfast Essentials to help get a great breakfast in our tummies. Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder comes in so many great flavors such as Rich Milk Chocolate, Classic French Vanilla, Classic Chocolate Malt, Dark Chocolate, Strawberry Sensation we have hard time choosing which makes the Variety Pack (which has multiple flavors) perfect for us.
We have been obsessed with smoothies for breakfast since summer is upon us and Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder makes the most amazing smoothies and keeps us a full and is a great source of nutrition like 21 Vitamins & Minerals, 13g of Protein and as much calcium as a 6 oz cup of yogurt. So I know it is the right choice for our breakfast smoothies.
Our favorite smoothie is my Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie which mixes a creamy chocolate smoothie with a delicious strawberry smoothie and my family goes nuts for it.
I just mix the Rich Milk Chocolate flavor with a little milk, some vanilla greek yogurt and a pinch of chocolate chips.
For the strawberry layer I take the Classic French Vanilla flavor and mix it with fresh strawberries and strawberry greek yogurt. You can use the Strawberry Sensation variety for this as well, we enjoy the strawberries and cream flavor we get from the French Vanilla.
Then fill half a glass with the strawberry smoothie and top it with the chocolate smoothie and voila you have a cool, refreshing great tasting breakfast your family will love and you will love all the good for you stuff inside this amazing smoothie.
