Strawberry Coconut Chocolate Smoothie

It’s strawberry season! Strawberry picking is something my family looks forward to doing every year. It’s so much fun to get the kids involved in picking the foods they are actually eating. They kind of appreciate it more. I love the “Farm to Table” philosophy, so we spent the morning supporting our local farmers picking fresh strawberries.

 We had so many strawberries to use! The first idea that came to mind was “Smoothies!” I ran into Walmart, and used this coupon http://goo.gl/vVdFMA to pick up some Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder. 

Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder is a healthy option for the whole family because it has 21 vitamins & minerals, 13g of Protein, and as much Calcium as a 6oz cup of yogurt. 

Some mornings I don’t have a lot of time to prep for a big breakfast, so this is perfect for busy moms like me.

    Love all the photos from strawberry picking. That is on my summer bucket list this year. The shake sounds delicious too! I may give it a try with the vanilla flavor.
