With school coming to an end and early morning summer camps on the horizon, I wanted to come up with a wake-me-up breakfast  that can be made quickly and enjoyed on the go.  Since coffee is already a mommy essential, I was on a mission to create a coffee-inspired smoothie.   

Last Sunday, for Mother’s Day, I got one of the most priceless gifts a mom can get ~ I got to run errands alone!  No kids pulling me to the toy section of Walmart or asking for a treat.  I was able to shop in peace, shop for some items for upcoming recipes ideas, including some Milk Chocolate Carnation Breakfast Essentials, and then it hit me – Mocha Smoothie!

This Mocha Smoothie combines all things delicious about breakfast, like Greek yogurt, banana, and coffee with the additional nutritional benefits (and chocolate!) from the Milk Chocolate Carnation Breakfast Essentials.  It takes minutes to whirl together, which is just what we need on those busy mornings.  Breakfast in minutes…and coffee!
