Even if it’s a little different in every house, everybody knows what a hectic morning looks like. There are lunches to pack, shoes to find, homework to sign, library books to locate, teeth to brush, shirts to turn right-side-out, hair to brush, and it all has to be done in time to catch buses or carpools or bike rides, or whatever!

There are a lot of things that can help make a smoother morning and more nutritious life. I know I always feel better when I’ve been working out, and getting enough sleep. And sometimes we’re really good about locating shoes and checking backpacks the night before. Breakfast is important too, and somehow my kids can make eating a single bowl of cereal last for 30 minutes. In effort to find them something quicker to eat, I started making these Carnation Breakfast Essentials® shakes with real fruit. We’re taking the 7-Day Breakfast Challenge to enjoy a nutritious breakfast every day for 7 days. Keep reading to see how you will have the chance to win some cool prizes.

They’re so easy and yummy that even now I’m remembering to eat breakfast! (Then I don’t end up wondering why I’m feeling funny at 10 am because I’ve been up for 4 hours and haven’t eaten!)

Each breakfast shake recipe only needs four ingredients.

Chocolate Blueberry Breakfast Shake
1 packet Chocolate Carnation Breakfast Essentials®
1 cup light almond milk
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup ice

Vanilla Peach Breakfast Shake
1 packet Vanilla Carnation Breakfast Essentials®
1 cup light almond milk
1/2 cup frozen peaches
1/2 cup ice

Choose the correct ingredients for the shake you’re making and combine in the blender. Blend for 1 minute, or until shake is smooth. Enjoy.
