I mentioned the other day that we have really been enjoying smoothies lately. I have the most fun seeing what the kids decide to throw in there & blend to perfection. Their creativity never ceases to amaze me. While there are times when I will whip up something a little less healthy, for the most part I like to structure my recipes with breakfast in mind to kick my day off on the right foot. This Vanilla Berry Smoothie is sort of a mix between. All of the ingredients are healthy & packed with nutrients- with the exception of my little secret ingredient…the Triple Berry Sauce. It gives this smoothie the punch of berry flavor I am after & paired with Vanilla Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder makes it soooo good.

The key ingredient to this smoothie is the Vanilla Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder. I love the AMAZING vanilla flavor it adds. It’s really easy for the kids to use too – no measuring or spilling. Added to that is the Triple Berry Sauce & then the granola. Keeps me full & satisfied well past lunch time.
I love all the flavors packed into this smoothie. Vanilla, berry & then topped with granola – YUM!
Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Powder is GREAT for making so many different kinds of smoothies. With flavors like chocolate, dark chocolate, chocolate malt, vanilla & strawberry – the kids & I are making a new recipe combo everyday.
