If you guys follow me on Instagram, you know what a big breakfast fan I am!! Breakfast is easily my favorite meal of the day and I wake up early every morning to prepare it. I feel like if you’re set with a good, filling and nutritious breakfast, your day is going to be that much better.
I have a few favorites that I rotate through, and give my kids the same thing that we eat ourselves. I’m a huge fan of eggs with sausage or bacon, whole grain waffles or pancakes, French toast made with leftovers of my sourdough bread and smoothies! MANY days, I will just make a giant family smoothie and serve up some sourdough toast with butter alongside it.
Today I am sharing our current favorite combination with you all! Recently, I spent some time with the Real California Milk folks and I was reminded, yet again, of the importance of dairy as a great form of protein in the morning. I also love knowing that, when I purchase dairy products with the Real California Milk seal on them, I am supporting family farms.
Now, you guys know what big fans of dairy we are over here. I happily (and generously!) spread all bread with butter and give my kiddos big glasses of milk at every meal. Yogurt is one of my favorite ways to get up to 15 grams of protein in the morning and I love knowing I’m filling my boys up with good stuff. This smoothie is full of protein and flavor, and will keep you full for hours on end. I usually add collagen powder and chia seeds to all of our smoothies, but leave that as optional for you all. The yogurt, blueberries, banana, granola, milk and honey will still pack a serious punch.
I hope you guys love this as much as my family does! I actually think it tastes like blueberry cobbler because it has a bit of a nutty taste from the granola with the sweetness of the berries. Enjoy!
- 1/2 cup Real California yogurt preferably whole fat
- 3/4 cup Real California milk preferably whole

This smoothie yields 1 adult smoothie or two kid-sized smoothies!
