Both my kids are picky eaters so I really have to try to pack the most amount of nutrients, good flavors in 1 bite (or drink) literally. It gets worse when the above description has to be the first in thing in the morning when let's face it, after months eating a bit late, no one is really hungry at 7 am.
This is my go to recipe, make it your own by changing the flavors of the fruit or oatmeal.
The carnation breakfast drinks were recommended by my oldest's Pediatrician when he entered Jr, High and he still likes them. When we don't have any handy (rarely) he substitutes it with Protein Powder.
Now that my little one is ready to enter K, I'm sure he would enjoy the different flavor drinks mama can make him for his mornings, strawberries are his favorite!!!
Are you ready for this new school year yet? Are your kids already in school? This week I will try to make some of the meals my kids like before they go to school, when they come back and what I like to cook for supper when car pooling, car taxing and homework make time disappear in a blink of an eye! Always keeping in mind that food tastes better with a Pinch of Love!
Summer Berry Oatmeal Shake
1 Cup of Milk
1 Envelope of Carnation Breakfast French Vanilla
1 Container (2.46 oz) Instant Oatmeal, Processed* (or whatever instant oatmeal you have)
1 Cup Mix Berries (My garden gave me fresh blackberries, raspberries and a few strawberries)
1 tsps Sugar (optional)
1 tsps Sugar (optional)
*I put my oatmeal through a food processor or blender and pulse a couple of times for a smoother texture for my shake, this particular step is optional, my kids prefer it this way.
Add all ingredients and blend until smooth.
Prep Time 5 minutes Serves 2 (8 oz Cups)
