Chocolate Covered Banana Berry Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

This shop about breakfast smoothies is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Nestle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia  #BreakfastEssentials

I am not sure about your kids but getting a nutritionally packed breakfast into my kids can be a challenge. They will easy eat a bowl of cereal but usually do not won’t eat any extra fruit. With great frozen berries on the market and a supply in our freezer from summer we have started using Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder to make smoothies.


We have made a lot of breakfast smoothie recipes before but never thought to add Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder to them. It is an easy way to add some extra nutrients and the kids can easy make this breakfast themselves.

o Since you just have to add everything to a blender it is An Easy solution for busy mornings
