Start Your Morning With A Grape Berry Smoothie
Mornings are always busy at my house and many times I forget to eat breakfast. As part of a plan for the new year, I decided to work on making mornings a little smoother for my family and I. The night before we make sure our clothes are laid out for the next morning, the house is straightened up, and we plan out our breakfast for the morning. Since my daughter and I are not morning people, eating a big breakfast is not an option. We instead turn to easy breakfasts which are not always nutritious.
The Carnation 7 Day Breakfast Challenge made me take a look at our current breakfast choices and how we could change them to be more nutritious and filling at the same time. After a quick trip to Sam’s Club to pick up Carnation Breakfast Essentials® and our favorite fruits, we were ready to get started.
One of our favorite and easy ways to enjoy breakfast has become fruit smoothies made with Carnation Breakfast Essentials® . Today I am going to share with you the recipe for our favorite fruit concoction the Grape Berry Smoothie.
The best part about breakfast smoothies is they are ready in just a few minutes and my daughter can make them if I am busy in the morning. We start with with 1 pack of Carnation Breakfast Essentials ® and add a cup of unsweetened almond milk, a cup of sliced strawberries and a cup of purple grapes. A quick whirl in the blender and we have 2 – 12 ounce Grape Berry Smoothies. Perfect to enjoy at home or in a travel mug on the go.
This makes 2 – 12 oz servings
