As kids, we remembered mom making us milk shakes for breakfast before we ran out for school. She called them her “instant breakfast.” We had NO idea what she put in them at the time, except that they were refreshing and fast to drink! And besides, we thought they were just plain milk shakes. Who knew!
Nowadays, it’s smoothies that taste like her healthy milk shake, using fresh fruit, a little yogurt, and a protein powder blended into a great tasting drink that is good for you! Try serving the kids a smoothie as part of their morning breakfast.
