When I was in college, I used to walk in to my early morning classes with my coffee cup in hand, but I wasn’t sipping a latte or cappuccino, I was sipping a Carnation Breakfast Essentials drink!  To this day, I still enjoy starting off my morning with Carnation Breakfast Essentials, mixed in milk or  milk and fruit for a quick and delicious smoothie.  Today I’m going to tell you a little more about the breakfast drink I love, and I’m going to share a recipe that uses Carnation Breakfast Essentials in a whole new way.  (If the idea of eating cookies for breakfast sounds good to you, keep reading!
