It is so hard to believe the kids are going back to school already… feels like summer just started! However, not only do my kids go back to school again this week, but my oldest son starts middle school and my youngest son starts kindergarten. So, lots of change coming our way, and yes, there are sure to be some tears– probably mostly from me though!
Mornings can be hectic… finishing up homework, getting lunches packed, making sure the kids have a healthy breakfast before heading out the door to catch the bus… but what about my own breakfast? I have to admit that, more than once, I have skipped breakfast because I simply haven’t had the time. But now, that excuse is gone. Even when I don’t have much time, I can still reach for Silk Almondmilk to help get my day started off the right way!
I was used to getting my almondmilk in the refrigerated section before, but now, I can get shelf-stable, individual bottles of Silk Almondmilk at my local Walmart. Maybe that doesn’t sound like a big deal, but for my busy life, I actually like being able to stock up on things so I don’t have to visit the store quite as often. And being able to stock up on this delicious almondmilk means that I have a quick breakfast-starter always available in my pantry.
Even though I am looking for a quick breakfast, I am still health-conscious. I really don’t want to start my day out with a donut just because it is quick and easy. For me, making a smoothie for breakfast is a quick, easy, healthier option. And using Silk Almondmilk as the base of my smoothie is a good choice because of how it’s made:
- good source of calcium
- contains NO: dairy, gluten, egg, casein, or MSG
- NO artificial colors, flavors, or additives
On my last trip to Walmart, I picked up the Silk Almondmilk Unsweetened Vanilla and the Silk Almondmilk and Cashewmilk with Caramel. And right now, you can save on these products with a $1.00 off coupon from Ibotta!
To make sure I get a good breakfast, and get the kids sent off to start the school year, I’m going to make a Chocolate Caramel Chia Smoothie:
- 1 cup Silk Almondmilk and Cashewmilk with Caramel
- 1 Banana
- 1 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocao
- 1 Tsp Chia Seeds
- 2 Tbsp Peanut Butter
- Ice Cubes
- Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour into your favorite smoothie cup.
- Top with whipped cream and drizzle with caramel (**optional).
How will Silk Almondmilk make your back to school schedule more manageable?
