Smoothie Queen

Forget Smoothie King.

I’ve been blending up a storm of healthy smoothies for breakfast the past few weeks. I was getting a little sick of drinking my breakfast, though, so I decided to imitate those trendy juice spots and make my own bowl. I’ve been using the Carnation Instant Breakfast (No Sugar Added) packets and mixing in different kinds of frozen fruit. I’m a chocoholic, so I tend to always go for the Rich Milk Chocolate flavor. I bought the variety pack so I could switch it up, but I couldn’t get myself to make the Strawberry shake. The thought of strawberry milk/ice cream/shakes makes me shiver. I decided to use up the Strawberry as the base of my smoothie bowl, because I thought the flavors would blend well with the fresh fruit I planned to top it with. It turned out perfectly! Sweet, refreshing, and delicious. I felt energized and satisfied, and it provided me with a good balance of carbs to fuel my workout.

I blended the above ingredients and poured them in a small bowl. Then I topped it with:

Happy blending! Hope you enjoy this colorful breakfast! 🙂
