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. But that wasn’t the case.
Our mom made our milk shakes with ice cream, milk and raw eggs as protein. Yep, raw eggs! Who knew? She didn’t think twice about sending us off to school with something in our stomachs, and especially not to send us off with commercial sugary cereals. Back then, her milk shakes worked for us.
Nowadays, most smoothies taste like a healthy milk shake. They’re made with simple ingredients using fresh fruit, some yogurt, and a protein powder that is easily blended into a great tasting drink that is good for you!
Try serving the kids a smoothie as part of their morning breakfast.
Try making yours with your favorite fruits and yogurts.
