Berry Banana Brain Booster Smoothie

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Nestle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia  #BreakfastEssentials

Who has mommy brain?  Who has kids that always answer "I don't know" when you ask them a question?  I have just the thing for you!   A great way to start your morning that will also give you and your kids a brain boost!  

The Berry Banana Brain Booster smoothie has everything you need to start your day off right, including Carnation Breakfast Essentials (which you can pick up at Walmart - right by the oatmeal in the cereal isle) Breakfast Essentials has 21 vitamins and minerals that your body needs plus 13g of protein and calcium. 

This smoothie is has Strawberries and Kale in it which are known to help your memory!  Boy- do I need all the help I can get!  Also the Kale and Banana help boost your metabolism too! -Bonus! 

It is also great for the kids.  With all the vitamins and protein it is sure to help them focus at school and not be distracted by being hungry!  Smoothies are a great way to hide those leafy greens for your kids to eat.  My kids don't even know they are eating Kale when I give them their smoothies, they drink them up and don't know any better! 1 point for mommy!

Here is what you will need: 
4-5 Large Strawberries 
1/2 Banana
1/2 - 1 cup Kale
1 cup Milk
1 package French Vanilla Carnation Breakfast Essentials powder (use this coupon!)

Put everything in your smoothie maker or blender and blend until smooth. 

Tip #1: Freeze your strawberries for more of an icy texture.

Tip #2: If you are going to put Kale in other smoothies be sure to add banana because the banana hides the bold kale taste.

I love starting my day off with a smoothie.  It is fast to make so much better then some packaged pastry!  The fresh fruits and veggies with the added protein and vitamins from the Carnaton Breakfast Essentials pack really give me the boost I need in the morning to face the day as a busy mom and blogger!  And my kids LOVE it too!  The baby always signs "more" when I have my smoothie out... I always have to share!
