Easy Recipe: Breakfast Smoothies

Thanks in part to the Reading is Fundamental and Nestle Family Happy New School Year Giveaway, I have been looking for breakfast on-the-go recipes.  As much as we would all love to sit down for a full breakfast everyday, some days we require something that is quick and easy.  A healthy, vitamin-enriched, and portable breakfast is smoothies.  Smoothies are an easy way to sneak in fruits, grains, and even vegetables for those hurried mornings.

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, a great tasting smoothie is On-The-Go Morning Mango.
On-The-Go Morning Mango
Prep Time: 5 min
Serving Size: 2


  1. 1 cup frozen chopped mangoes
  2. 1 cup fat free milk
  3. 1 packet Classic French Vanilla Flavor Carnation Instant Breakfast Essentials Complete Nutritional Drink
  4. Juice from 1 lime
  5. 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Place mangoes, milk, Carnation Instant Breakfast Essential, lime juice and honey in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.
  2. Divide between two chilled glasses and serve immediately.


Another is the Berry Smoothie which combines various berries for a fruity flavor.
