As kids, we remembered mom making us milk shakes for breakfast before we ran out for school. She called them her "instant breakfast."  We had NO idea what she put in them at the time, except that they were refreshing and fast to drink!  And besides, we thought they were just plain milk shakes. Who knew!

Nowadays, it's smoothies that taste like her healthy milk shake, using fresh fruit, a little yogurt, and a protein powder blended into a great tasting drink that is good for you!  Try serving the kids a smoothie as part of their morning breakfast.

  7. I love making my kids smoothies for breakfast or for an after school snack. They're filling and full of healthy things. I love the addition of using protein powder here.

    Do you remember those Carnation instant breakfast shakes? They came in those little packets? You could get chocolate, strawberry or vanilla? You just added milk and stirred? My brother and I use to devour those after school. Funny, but I hadn't thought of them till I read your post! It sounds like your mom made you the real thing though! :) xoxo, Jackie
