 Berry Smoothie Back-to-School Breakfast with Giveaway!

It's back-to-school time whether I like it or not! (I don't like it one bit!) But part of doing well in school is a healthy breakfast before heading out the door. I don't have a lot of time in the mornings for fancy feasts, so smoothies are the perfect solution. The perfect combination of sweet berries full of antioxidants and protein powder for long lasting energy! Stick around to the end to enter the amazing Back-to-School Giveaway!
 But this berry smoothie has a secret ingredient that will help with nutrition and brain power. Barlean's Omega Pals is the perfect addition to add sweetness and all the important things to keep kids going. They can be taken by the spoonful, like a tasty treat...or added to oatmeal, smoothie bowls, and smoothies. They come in 4 delicious flavors; I sampled the Straw-Nana and Tangerine.


1 Frozen Banana
1 cup Frozen Triple Berry
1 Scoop of Vanilla Protein Powder
Barlean's Omega Pals in Straw-Nana
Big glass
Immersion Blender
 First, place the berries and banana in tall glass and fill 1/2 way with water. Then blend with the immersion blender until smooth.
 After the berries are blended, add the scoop of protein powder and mix thoroughly.
 Finally add 2 teaspoons of Barlean's Omega Pals Straw-Nana and stir in to the smoothie.

 That's it! 

Serve cold with a paper straw! My kids love this smoothie...and guess what? My husband loved it too! We drank this for breakfast and didn't need any other food until afternoon! I call that a win!
 It's hard to believe it's already time to be talking about going back to school! It seems like summer just flew right by! To celebrate and help get you ready for this busy time, we've got loads of great back to school recipe ideas for you, along with an awesome giveaway.

My back to school tip is for lunchboxes: slice apples and dip in lemon/lime juice to prevent browning.

My tip: Help your kid make a personalized planner or binder before the school year starts. Let them do the work. If they take pride in their organizer they will be more likely to use it and you might actually see the Science Fair info before the night before. ;)
