This pregnant soon-to-be mommy was thrilled to wake up to a special treat on Mother's Day from my sweet hubby! My wonderful husband used Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder to create me a delicious tasting smoothie that he brought to me while I was getting ready for church along with a wonderful Mother's Day gift of flowers, cards (one from him and one from our baby in the womb), and a baby memory book to record all our little one's 'firsts.'

To make the smoothie he combined Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder in Rich Milk Chocolate with milk, bananas, and ice to create a delicious, healthy breakfast drink! This powder was the perfect treat because not only did it create an easy solution for a busy morning but the powder itself contains 21 vitamins and minerals, 13g of protein, and as much calcium as a 6 oz. cup of yogurt making it a super healthy breakfast for baby and I!

I purchased Carnation Breakfast Essentials at Walmart to take advantage of the following coupon: The Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder is an easy solution for busy mornings as you can see from my pictures as you can easily mix up your favorite smoothie recipe to make a great, easy breakfast.
