Now that the holidays are over and the kids are heading back to school, I’m trying to make breakfasts that are not only nutritious and filling, but are also quick and easy, since we’re usually out the door before 7!
Have I told you that I’m not a morning person? The Hubs is, but I am most definitely not! That’s why I either make things on the weekend that I can easily reheat later or that are practically effortless, like this tasty breakfast drink.
Last year, I made a Funky Monkey Breakfast Smoothie that was a big hit with the kids. We chose this name in honor of our favorite middle child, the Monkey, because it contains some of her favorite foods. So I thought I would give that drink a makeover and lighten it up a little.
I set a few fitness goals for this year, so I’m really trying to watch what I eat. I’m not cutting out treats, but I am trying to eat more fruits, raw veggies and make simple changes that will help in the long run.
When I was shopping at Walmart last week, I found this new Jif Peanut Powder right in the peanut butter aisle.
