I have found the new best snack, meaning I’ll think it’s the best for about three months and then most likely get tired of it. That’s how I roll.
Anyways, I’ve been drinking the chocolate flavored Carnation Instant Breakfast packets for awhile now, but I never thought to try their idea of making it into a smoothie until today.
In a blender, I mixed 1 packet of milk chocolate flavored Carnation Instant Breakfast with 1 cup fat-free milk, added in a chopped up frozen banana, 1 heaping tablespoon of creamy peanut butter, and a small handful of ice cubes.
Blended until smooth it was a cold and yummy drink that really hit the spot. I also think it would be good with almond butter or any kind of milk substitute (vanilla flavored almond milk…?) Plus, it has the protein and carbohydrates needed after a long workout, without the expensive price and weird after taste of making a smoothie with protein powder, a win-win!
I didn’t take a picture, because a glass of chocolate smoothie didn’t sound very exciting, so here’s a picture of where I went running today:
28 days until 26.2!
