Kid-Friendly Chocolate Protein Smoothie

 My girls are so funny, every time they see me drink my protein smoothie, they think they need one too.  I have been making them a ‘special’ protein smoothie for a few years now that they love!  It is made with
Carnation Breakfast Essentials powder.  I call the smoothie our Kid-Friendly Chocolate Protein Smoothie.

The reason why I love making this for them on busy mornings is for a number of reasons.  First, my younger daughter does not like milk.  I worry about her calcium intake.  Both of my daughters will not eat meat and I worry about them getting any protein.  This smoothie is great for them because Breakfast Essentials packets have 13g of protein and as much calcium as a 6oz cup of yogurt.  It gives me piece of mind that my girls get what they need from this drink.  Plus, they really like it.
I picked up my box of Carnation Breakfast Essentials at Walmart.  You can use a coupon HERE for $1.00 off!
