I love trying new breakfast ideas out with the kids. Trying some yummy smoothie recipes with Carnation Breakfast Essentials was next on the list. Smoothies could be an easy to make, and kid friendly, solution to breakfast at my house. While on a shopping trip to Kroger I picked up a box of Carnation Breakfast Essentials. Look for Carnation Breakfast Essentials offers Here. It comes in a variety of flavors: rich milk chocolate, classic french vanilla, classic chocolate malt, dark chocolate, strawberry sensation, and variety packs. Choosing just one to start with was hard but Classic French Vanilla won out. Find out more about the nutritional benefits by clicking HERE.
I could not wait to get home and create a smoothie recipe with the kids. I also got some colorful straws to make “silly straws” with the kids. We could use these when drinking our smoothies just for fun.
What we used:
Carnation Breakfast Essentials- classic french vanilla
You can find great smoothie recipes at Carnation Breakfast Essentials website here. However, we decided to create our own. We will share our kid friendly recipe we came up with. This breakfast smoothie is easy to make and perfect for the kids to help make or even make on their own if old enough.
Strawberry Vanilla Smoothie Recipe:
Add to blender 1 packet of Carnation Breakfast Essentials- classic french vanilla, 1 cup milk, about 2 cups strawberries (you can add less or more depending on your preference), and 1 (6 oz) vanilla yogurt.
Blend until smooth. Now pour into cups. The kids were so excited and could not wait to try out our smoothie creation.
One cup of smoothie and a side of cut up strawberries and breakfast was complete. Easy and yummy! And not to mention good for them.
The kids were also pretty excited about our Silly Straws I made. We have made these straws before. To find out how see our Mustache straws-just for fun post.
This easy and kid friendly Carnation Breakfast Essentials Strawberry Vanilla Smoothie was the perfect way to start our days. We can not wait to try a new smoothie creation soon. The possibilities are endless. What would you put in your smoothies?
