Going back to work from maternity leave has definitely been an adjustment for me. While I miss my kiddos so much, it’s nice to be back into the swing of things and “normal life” again after months of craziness of a new baby. But going back to work and trying to find new breakfast options that are healthy has been difficult. I tend to prefer baked goods in the morning, but baked goods don’t necessary like me and my post-baby body. So I thought why not try to find some new fun ways to get a good breakfast in me, that tastes good, and that is a bit outside the box!? And I came up with this tasty Peach Breakfast Smoothie recipe for me and my family!
For this smoothie you’ll need:
Carnation Breakfast Essentials Vanilla powder
Almond Milk in Vanilla or Plain Flavor
I started by chopping up my peaches and putting them into my blender. I used one large peach, but you could easily add two depending on how many you have on hand or how much you’re making. From there, I added one packet of Carnation Breakfast Essentials Vanilla powder….
Finally I added about one cup of almond milk and one to one and a half cups of ice, then I blended it all together.
Blend it all together and voila! It’s a little like an orange julius flavor, but with more peach to it. My four year old son even gave it the stamp of approval and enjoyed it!
I can totally see us mixing these up on the weekends with whatever fruits we have on hand. The reason they’re even better than a traditional smoothie is that Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Powder provides 21 Vitamins and Minerals with 13 grams of protein and as much calcium as a 6 oz. cup of yogurt…all in one drink! Couple that with the benefits of the fruit and almond milk we just added and you’re getting a powerhouse breakfast in one drink serving! There’s no BETTER way to start the day!
Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Powder comes in a wide variety of flavors such as Rich Milk Chocolate, Classic French Vanilla, Classic Chocolate Malt, Dark Chocolate, Strawberry Sensation, and the Variety Pack (which has multiple flavors).
