Orange Julius Smoothies

We’ve all heard breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  I know I certainly feel more focused and am able to get more work done when I’ve had something to eat early in the day.  But sometimes when I first wake up, I’m just not really all that hungry, and I certainly don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking and dirtying up dishes unnecessarily…my solution to this dilemma is often Carnation Breakfast Essentials.

Carnation Breakfast Essentials

I’ve been drinking this stuff since my teen years.  It was always a great drink to take on my early morning commute to school, and it got me through many college lectures!  Back then I primarily bought the chocolate flavored and simply added it to milk, but now I love using the Carnation Breakfast Essentials as a base for shakes and smoothies.  By adding a simple ingredient or two, I’ve come up with some really yummy flavor combinations that make for a light, yet filling breakfast that any girl can enjoy.
