I don’t know about you but my son is a picky eater. Getting him to eat a healthy breakfast in the morning is tricky business. One thing I use in my arsenal is Carnation Breakfast Essentials. They allow me to create delicious smoothie recipes and he has no idea are actually good for him! Also mornings in my house are busy, I have to get my 1 year old daughter squared away as well as get my 8 year old dressed, fed, and out the door. This is a FAST and EASY way to get at least one of those jobs done.
This recipe is actually so tasty that after I tasted one that I made for him I started making enough for the both of us. I mentioned the ingredients to my daughter’s doctor and she said that if I leave out the syrup that it would be an ideal snack for my 1 year old! WIN!
1 Cup of Milk (whatever fat content you desire)
6 Tablespoons of Carnation Breakfast Essentials Rich Milk Chocolate Powder Mix
1/4 Cup of Peanut Butter
1 Tablespoon of Maple Syrup
1 Cups of Ice
Optional: You can also add chocolate syrup to the glass for a more enticing breakfast or even a fun pillow of whip cream to the top.
Place all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
Was that easy enough? I have been making these for the last week and they have went over with rave reviews. My son is even coming home from school asking for them as an afternoon snack! I don’t mind making them because they are good for him and take 2 minutes to whip up! Bonus: He never leaves a drop!
I picked up the Carnation Breakfast Essentials at Walmart on the Hot Cereal aisle and they have an amazing coupon for $1 off right now that you can get HERE! It has 21 vitamins and minerals, 13 grams of protein, and as much calcium as 6 oz of yogurt! It is also an easy solution for busy mornings with the kids!
