Jump-start your day with this whole-grain, protein packed smoothie made with strawberries, yogurt, Honey Bunches of Oats cereal, and bananas!
Real Talk: You know, when you’re bored, you snack on a bag of chips, correct? Except that I don’t.
I snack on cereal. I may or may not have killed an entire box of cereal in one sitting.
Sometimes, when I want a healthy dessert for breakfast, I make a Crunch Pie. Other times, when I want a healthy dessert for breakfast that I can only have in the car, I make a smoothie.
Thus, I created a smoothie that completely satisfied my craving for a breakfast-dessert and my craving for cereal. And my cravings for fruit, chocolate, cinnamon, and milk. Yeah… all of that goodness found its way into my delicious smoothie. Don’t worry. It’s still delicious and nutritious.
One more “real talk” truth; I am head over heels for Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy. Seriously.
I also found myself head over heels over boots when I first tasted their New Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy Cereals, including both varieties, Cinnamon Crunch and Chocolatey Almond Crunch.
The Cinnamon Crunch is made with sweet and crunchy cinnamon clusters. They are amazing! My hand was in that box constantly, trying to find “just one more” cluster! Then, the Chocolatey Almond Crunch includes chocolate morsels and almonds – an absolute treat! Definitely dessert for breakfast.
What’s more is that both cereals are packed with whole grain, protein and fiber to give you the energy you need to keep you going. They are a great way to jump-start your morning and help reduce that mid-morning hunger.
Also…before you go on… you should have breakfast, preferably this smoothie. Also, also… how would you like to sample these delicious treats for yourself?! You would?? YAY!
One of you lucky readers is going to win 1 box of Chocolatey Almond Crunch and 1 box of Cinnamon Crunch! All you have to do is answer one simple question: Which of the two flavors are you most excited to try and why? That’s it! GOOD LUCK!
