Another Monday is here, friends. The weekend has come and gone and we’re faced with the start of another week. And while this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, I wish I could rewind time just a bit and have it be Friday again. But since I don’t have the power to do that, I’m going to get through this day as best as I can! And one way that helps me get off to the right start is a delicious breakfast.
I’m mentioned before that although I love breakfast, I often times don’t eat the best meal. I’ve gotten better with that, but sometimes I still rush out the door with just my mug of coffee or granola bar. Not the best way to start out the day, right?
So when I was shopping at Walmart last weekend, I stumbled across Nestlé Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder. It contains essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, all in powder form. It’s easy to add to milk, fruit, or just about anything else that you can think of. Plus, it comes in three mouthwatering flavors: chocolate, strawberry, and my favorite, French vanilla.
If you’ve ever tried Nestlé Carnation Breakfast Essentials products before, you already know how delicious it tastes. So I was thrilled to find that one of my favorite products is now offered in powdered form! It’s easy to grab, convenient to carry, and helps make a nutritious breakfast or snack, without sacrificing flavor. Now I have no excuse to not make a quick and healthy breakfast when I’m running out the door.
So as soon as I walked in the door, I quickly took out the Nestlé Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder in French Vanilla and started dreaming of ways to make my breakfasts more nutritious. After much consideration, I landed upon this Berry Vanilla Fruit Salad. Filled with fresh fruit, zesty lemon juice, and hints of vanilla, this salad makes the perfect, easy breakfast or mid-morning snack. And since it’s filled with vitamins and minerals, I can feel good about what I’m eating.
Bursting with flavor, this Berry Vanilla Fruit Salad has become part of my morning routine. And because it’s a breeze to whip up, I don’t have to rush around trying to get breakfast reading in the mornings. I usually prepare this salad the night before and then munch on it throughout the week. Even the hubster takes a second (and third) helping of this Berry Vanilla Fruit Salad for breakfast, which means that this is lip-smackin’ good!
Did I mention how easy this Berry Vanilla Fruit Salad is to make? I’m all about the easy recipes, and this one is a winner. I chose to use a combination of strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and pineapple, but feel free to throw in whatever fruit you love most. To start, you’ll want to slice the strawberries and pineapples into small chunks. Toss those together with the blueberries and blackberries, and in some lemon juice and Nestlé Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder in French Vanilla and your fruit salad is ready to be devoured. I told you it was easy, friends!
One bite and you’ll fall in love this fruity and delicious Berry Vanilla Salad. The tart and sweet fruits pair perfectly with the French vanilla flavor, which makes this even more satisfying to know that what you’re eating is both delicious and nutritious. It’s also convenient for breakfast, snack, or anytime in between.
