Chocolate & Banana Smoothie {recipe}

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 #ad

Hello! It’s the end of the school year, & mornings are a little rough around our house! The kiddos just don’t want to get up early anymore. ha! ;) My youngest daughter has the roughest time of all. She likes to sleep in just like her momma! Thank goodness I do have one way that I can always get her up~ and that is to say, “I’ll make you a smoothie!” We love making smoothies for breakfast with Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Powder that you can find at Walmart. She loves them, and I love that it is an easy & nutritious breakfast. So keep reading to see how I made one our favorites ~ a chocolate & banana smoothie. Plus I’ll have a link to a coupon & links to more delicious smoothie recipes. So keep reading! :)

Now are you ready for this easy & yummy recipe? I thought so! ;) This recipe is so, so simple. All you’ll need is one banana, 1 cup of low fat or skim milk & 6 tablespoons of Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Rich Milk Chocolate Powder.

First you’ll pour your milk into a cup & stir in the milk chocolate powder. Stir until the powder dissolves. Then pinch your banana into small piece & add that to your milk mixture. Then I just used a hand held smoothie mixer to stir this all together for a few minutes until blended.

For my kiddos I try to make it a little more fun. ha! I put some fat free whip topping on top & then sprinkled it with some crushed graham crackers. Add a fun straw, and you are set to go! :)
