Along Abbey Road | A Lifestyle And Family Blog : Chocolate And Banana Smoothie


Chocolate And Banana Smoothie

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Nestle, but all opinions are my own. #pmedia #BreakfastEssentials http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

The other day, Luke scooted a chair over to the counter and began gathering items for a "shmoothee." He even proceeded to grab the milk from the fridge and plunk it down on the ground in front of him even though its weight is half of his. That child has the willpower of a bull, especially when it comes to his favorite foods and treats. Lucky for me, I was introduced to Carnation Breakfast Essentials recently and it has made our breakfast smoothie making more simple (Luke can practically mix it on his own) and varied. And when I say varied, I mean chocolatey, and that is always a good thing.

I picked up a box of the Rich Milk Chocolate flavor at the neighboring Walmart, along with some coconut milk and a couple of bananas. I decided that a chocolate banana smoothie is just what the weatherman ordered to cool down in this scorching heat, and it's a bonus that it's packed with vitamins and protein. With just four simple ingredients, this will absolutely be one of our main go-to, nutritional smoothies for the summer! (And it's gluten-free!)

Chocolate And Banana Smoothie
(Makes 2 servings)


3/4 cup Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder in Rich Milk Chocolate
2 cups coconut milk
2 ripe bananas, sliced and frozen
A small handful of ice


1. Pour the coconut milk, chocolate powder, and ice in a blender. Blend well until the ice chunks are gone.
2. Add in the sliced bananas, and blend until thoroughly mixed.
3. Pour into two cups, throw in a cute straw, and slurp up!

This recipe is simple, it tastes clean and light, and it is a hit with the little ones, too! I've been drinking the combo of chocolate and banana in some form or another for a long time, and I can honestly say I really like the nutrients and flavor this powder adds.

Be sure to grab this coupon for $1 off when you purchase your own box of Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder at Walmart. There are five different flavors to pick from and a whole lot of other smoothie recipes as well, should you want to change up your breakfast smoothie routine. Oh, and be sure to check out the Carnations Breakfast Essentials Facebook page to find more promotions and discounts! Enjoy!

Hey Madi! It's called a GIF and I created it in Photoshop using a YouTube video to teach me how! Just google "how to make a GIF in Photoshop" :)
