I don’t know about you all, but in the mornings I need easy, and I need on the go. Because school drop off waits for no one! Plus, as many of you know if you follow my blog, I am on a weight loss journey. So, I also need healthy. So this week I whipped up a new shake. I needed something I could just throw in my Ninja or my blender, pour, and run out of the house like a lunatic, throwing back packs, and screaming down the hall, ” did you put on clean underwear?” Look at me like that’s not how your mornings go. Well this shake met all of those qualification. I wanted to share the recipe with you. In attempts to make your morning routine a little easier as well. I can’t promise all your kids will fall into single file out the door with brushed teeth and matching socks, but you will have a healthy shake in hand mom. What am I talking about my socks don’t match.
Let me know below if you plan to give this shake a try. There is a share button at the top and at the bottom of this post, click that bad boy and share it across social media, especially Pinterest (because, I worked really hard to make it look like I live in a Pinterest house, when I took the photo.) Y’all know the truth. That is one of those highlight reel photos, I tell ya about here. Yes, I just put a shameless plug, in my post about my own post. Don’t you judge me! Anyways, be sure to share with all the other mom out there with busy mornings. Have a terrific morning.

Now I’m off to go try to look like I didn’t just roll out of bed in the school drop off.
