Since I was little I’ve been taught that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And with two small kids in the house, I always make sure that breakfast is a priority. Our morning routine starts with potty time for our son and a diaper change for our daughter, followed by a nutritious breakfast. I’m big into breakfast because if we don’t start our day with a good meal, I definitely won’t make it through the morning.
One of my favorite easy breakfasts that helps me start my day off right is a simple three-ingredient chocolate banana smoothie. I would drink this when I was pregnant with my son because it was easy, nutritious, and a good source of protein. Now I like to share it with my kids so they can start their day off right, too!
The key to this recipe is Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Powder. I use the chocolate powder, but it also comes in vanilla and strawberry.
The powder, mixed with one cup of fat-free milk, only has 220 calories and 31g of sugar, plus it has 13g of protein! Score! And when you add in one banana, you get a nutritious and delicious smoothie! The recipe makes two servings, and each serving has 162.5 calories and 22.5g of sugar. It’s a win, win!
Seriously though, a nutritious breakfast doesn’t get much easier than this. First, measure 1 cup of fat-free milk into a blender (I love my NutriBullet!).
Then add in 1 packet of chocolate Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Powder.
Peel and break up 1 banana and add it in.
Blend until smooth!
Voila! A breakfast that is sure to help you start your morning off right, no matter how busy of a day you have ahead of you!
