Strawberry Mocha Smoothie [featuring Carnation Breakfast Essentials]

Strawberry Mocha Smoothie

I’m quite the smoothie maker these days. Since adding the Ninja Ultima Blender to my countertop, it’s one of my favorite ways to sneak in a fresh, cold treat during the day.

I know that lots of people enjoy a delicious smoothie for breakfast, but I often skip that route because I just can’t give up my morning cup of coffee. That is, until I created a delicious morning smoothie that’s perfect for me – my Strawberry Mocha Smoothie featuring Breakfast Essentials!

You see – if I am going to prefer another drink to my morning cup of joe – it better have some coffee right in it! There are a ton of variations you can do with this smoothie, but I prefer to keep it simple – it’s early in the morning, you know!

Breakfast Essentials Strawberry Mocha Smoothie

Breakfast Essentials is a complete nutritional drink by itself – it easily dissolves in milk [the girls are loving it!], but I thought I could use the added benefits of so many vitamins and minerals to my already yummy smoothie. Plus, it’s chocolate, y’all! Enough said, right?

Jumpstart Mornings Breakfast Essentials

Although I admit, I rarely get to enjoy a deliciously creamy Strawberry Mocha Smoothie out of a mason jar on my back deck, it does happen… rarely.

I’m usually sipping right out of my Ninja Single Serve Glass as I drive Sophia to preschool or chase Moreaya down the hall to get her clothes on for the day. That’s the beauty of motherhood!
