As kids, we remembered mom making us milkshakes 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 milkshakes.
But that wasn’t the case.
Our mom made our milkshakes 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 milkshakes worked for us.
Nowadays, most smoothies taste like a healthy milkshake.
They’re made with simple ingredients using fresh fruit, some yogurt, and protein powder that is easily blended into a great tasting drink that is good for you! And No raw eggs, of course.
Try serving your family members a smoothie as part of their morning breakfast.
Try making yours with your favorite fruits and yogurts.
