Mango Berry Blast Smoothie
This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Nestle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #BreakfastEssentials http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
People sometimes ask me if I'm a morning person or a night person? Actually, I'm a busy person. That means late to bed and early to rise so that, by the time the weekend comes, I'm a sleepy person. During the week, though, I have no trouble getting up reasonably early and getting stuff done. The trouble is that early is never early enough and there's always more stuff.
Carnation Breakfast Essentials and was pleased with the amount of vitamins, protein and calcium it provided. And with all the great springtime fruit available in the market now, and my blender sitting on the counter, I knew I could come up with something both good and fast.
I made my smoothie thick and swirled blueberries into it so I could eat it with a spoon. Somehow it seemed liked more of a meal. But just a touch more milk, a straw and a to-go cup and I had breakfast on the run. Now to experiment with the other flavors. Did I see chocolate?? Enjoy!
1 Package Carnation Breakfast Essentials Classic French Vanilla
1/4 Cup low fat milk
1/2 Cup frozen strawberries
1 Mango, peeled and pitted
1 6 oz. Container fat free Greek style yogurt
1/4 Cup fresh blueberries
