Instant Yogurt Smoothies

I’ve been drinking Carnation Instant Breakfast drinks for almost 15 years now.  It was always such a perfectly delicious and quick snack to drink on the way to work or school.  Usually I drink the milk chocolate, but I actually love all the flavors. 
Over the past year I’ve also developed a love for Yoplait’s Yoplus Yogurt.  Strawberry is my favorite flavor, but I also enjoy the raspberry and the strawberry banana.   So I decided to combine these two breakfast treats into one quick and easy smoothie.  The result was sweet and delicious!
If you have a fruity treat to share with us, please send it in to me for Sweet Thursday by August 25.

Recipe for Yogurt Smoothie:

1 4oz yogurt
3/4 cup milk
1 envelope Carnation Instant Breakfast mix (I used vanilla flavored.)

Directions: Blend together your milk and yogurt. Then add drink mix and blend to smooth. Makes one medium size smoothie. For an extra fruity, extra thick smoothie, add 1 to 2 oz.of fruit.

*Tip: This would also be a great smoothie to make with Whey Protein Powder or other powered drink mixes you may have on hand.

  1. That sounds yummy. Unfortunately I have the habit of running out of the house in the mornings not eating. So this would be a great breakfast. I could even eat it on the go.

  2. Sounds yummy! My kids have been on a smoothie kick this summer. I bet they'd enjoy this 🙂

    I love Carnation instant breakfast! My new drink I just discovered is Horchata – the most soothing cooling drink you can imagine! I get El Mexicano mix at WalMart and add 1 can of evaporated milk, 6 cups water, and 3/4 cup of the mix. Try it! 🙂 Nancy
