Get Up & Go Breakfast Smoothie

Mornings around our house can be pretty chaotic.  I usually wake up and put on my workout clothes and then start getting the kids up.  This can be one of the biggest chores of the day.  Actually getting them out of the bed and dressed.  It is just so hard for them to wake up sometimes!  After I feed the kids breakfast we rush out the door to get them to school on time and then I either go for a run (if it is over 43 degrees I run outside.  I don’t know how I arrived at that temperature, but that is my limit!) or I go to the gym to workout.  Then it is home for a shower and my breakfast before I start on my tasks of the day.  Whew.  Just typing this wears me out!  I have learned that there are many things that I can do to make my mornings better.  For instance, on the days where I get a good workout in my days go a whole lot better and I get more done.  Also, if I get the kids lunches done the night before and have an empty dishwasher, so I can just throw in the dirty breakfast dishes my day gets off to a great start.  Having a plan for breakfast also helps my mornings take off on a good note.

Breakfast for me is essential.  I can’t go without it.  It gives me the energy I need to have a good morning.  But the mornings can be hectic, so I like to find foods that will give me the energy and nutrition I need while also being easy to fix and good to eat.  I have found this combination in this easy get up & go breakfast smoothie made with Carnation Breakfast Essentials® powder.  It is super easy and quick to make and tastes amazing!  Carnation Breakfast Essentials® powder is wonderful because it is convenient to use and comes in great flavors.  I can make a variety of different smoothies with it, or I can just mix it with a cold glass of milk and be on my way.  A perfect way to help me have a better morning.

    I think a smoothie like this for breakfast is perfect for people who say they don’t feel like eating when they get up. Thanks for the reminder ;)

    Yum. I grew up drinking the plain old Carnation breakfast so never wanted to drink it again as an adult. I’m going to try it again. This time with blueberries.
