It’s Smoothie time!!! Skinny Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie time! I’m pretty happy about this recipe.  Breakfast just got a major facelift at our house.

Skinny Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie made with Carnation Instant Breakfast! YUM! - The Cookie Rookie

You know if I’m going to create a smoothie…there are a couple recipe requirements.  Easy, delicious, healthy but tastes sinful, and did I say easy? I am NOT a morning person, so whatever I make either needs to be made the night before, or literally made in 5 minutes or less.   We don’t have kids yet, but our furry children require WAY too much attention in the morning.  Usually I am running out the door hungry.  Not anymore!  This delicious smoothie is made with only 5 ingredients, tastes amazing, and will keep you satisfied until lunch! It’s all because of a secret ingredient…Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder!

I’ll get back to posting cheesy dips and chocolatey desserts tomorrow, but today was a smoothie day.  I think I’m hooked.  McDonalds might just be losing some early morning business (#eggwhitedelightlover) now that I’ve made my first smoothie.  Yum.
