Southern Mom Loves: Quick & Healthy Berry Breakfast Shake {Recipe}

Quick & Healthy Berry Breakfast Shake {Recipe}

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

With Back To School in full swing, I wanted to share a healthy breakfast shake recipe with you. This doesn't taste "healthy", and if the kids don't watch you make it, they won't even know that there's spinach in it! I also use a vanilla-flavored yogurt to put a little extra sweetness in it, but you can use any type of yogurt, sweetener (honey is marvelous), and also any type of berries you like best. Mix it up to come up with a flavor combination that your kids will love!

The yogurt and milk bring Calcium, Vitamin D & B-12 to the table, while the Blackberries, Raspberries, and Blueberries are packed with Vitamin C, antioxidants, and fiber. Add in some spinach for a dose of Vitamin A and Iron, and you have a healthy treat that can get you energized and out of the door in record time.
