In this season of life, weekday mornings are hectic. From the moment we wake up, to the time when my oldest gets on the bus to head off to school, it’s a total whirlwind in our house. Some days it’s a struggle just to get breakfast on the table, and I have to rely on some shortcuts to get us all through, and to ensure that everyone has something in their belly to start the day. Weekends are for slow lazy mornings and big breakfasts… for weekdays, simple and fast is the name of the game.
Smoothies have become a favorite around here in recent years, for more reasons than one. For starters, they’re pretty quick and easy to throw together, and on top of that they provide the perfect vehicle for sneaking some healthy foods into my kids, without them really knowing it. They love smoothies, even if they wouldn’t touch some of the stuff that I put in them if I put it on a plate. On top of that, when I’m pregnant, like I am now, they’ve become a great way to get some added nutrition into my diet. I wish that I could say that I was one of those pregnant women who craves fruits and veggies (more like carbs and sweets), but I’m not, so smoothies are my favorite way to “eat” some healthier foods and get the vitamins that I need.
We recently tried McCormick Good Morning Smoothie Boosts for the first time, and it was love at first sip. They’re a super easy way to add a boost of flavor and nutrition to your ordinary smoothie. We love to blend ours with frozen fruit and almond milk. The Mixed Berry Flavor is a favorite for both my husband and I, and as you can imagine, my kids are obsessed with with Chocolate Mocha flavor. I like to blend theirs with some almond milk, frozen bananas, and a little bit of peanut butter for added protein, and I swear, they think it’s dessert, a motherhood win for sure! Mornings are fast, too fast. Between getting ready for the workday and preparing your kids for school, there isn’t much time to create the flavorful, fulfilling breakfast your family deserves. McCormick Good Morning Breakfast is a break through line of products to help you do just that. Plus, they couldn’t be easier to make. Smoothies go from ordinary to extraordinary with a boost of taste and nutrition! Just blend into your favorite shake recipes for a drinkable breakfast on-the-go. It doesn’t get much easier than throwing a bunch of ingredients into the blender and letting it do the work for you.
What’s your favorite quick and healthy breakfast?
