Mornings are hard. Getting out of the door, on time, with the kids dressed and fed, homework done and signed, and the dog walked is a challenge requiring super-mommy powers.
As moms, we make sure our children eat a nutritious breakfast and get a good start to their busy day; however, when it comes to us getting that healthy start ourselves, we too often let it go. We just don’t have the time to sit and eat breakfast.
Besides, if we have to choose between morning coffee and a full, nutritious breakfast, we pick the caffeine.
Carnation Breakfast Essentials is the perfect solution to the “I’m too busy to eat breakfast” problem. It comes in variations of chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and even in variety packs.
Here’s the good news…you can blend it with your morning coffee and get your shot of caffeine along with 21 vitamins and minerals. 13 grams of protein, and as much calcium as a yogurt.
Giving your body this powerful start would change your day.
Cafe Mocha Frappuccino Recipe
1 packet Carnation Breakfast Essentials – any variety of chocolate
1 cup milk (I use 2%, but use what you like)
1 cup double-strength coffee
1-2 cups ice
For more recipes, check out Carnation Breakfast Essentials recipe page.
In a glass, mix one packet of chocolate flavored Carnation Breakfast Essentials with cold milk. Set aside.
In a blender, mix your coffee (be sure to make it good and strong) with one to two cups of ice, depending how thick and frosty you like your frappuccino. Blend until the ice is crushed. Or, if you have a refrigerator that crushes your ice for you, skip the blender step.
Add your cup of Carnation Breakfast Essentials and blend (or stir). Pour it into your tallest to-go cup and you’re all set!
If you love iced-coffee, just don’t use a blender to crush your ice.
It really is that easy!
Take a few seconds each day to do something good for yourself, and change your mornings forever. Grab your keys and your protein packed, caffeine laced frappuccino, and get out the door.
Just don’t forget your kids!

Great idea Tricia! Way to multi-task your breakfast!!
That’s a great idea! I don’t always have time in the mornings too, I buy a shake here that I love to use, but the boys are always asking me for one too. I’ll have to check this out for us! Love the idea of adding coffee for mommas!

And they make the sugar free option, too! Love this recipe. Yes please!
