Mornings at our house are slightly chaotic, especially now that we’re headed back-to-school. Getting four kids up, dressed, fed, and the oldest two out the door in time to catch the school bus can be a challenge. I need a quick and easy breakfast solution that will fill them up and leave them fueled until lunch. A protein-packed breakfast sandwich and our favorite smoothie recipe should do the trick!
There are several quick and easy breakfast solutions that we take advantage of at our house – oatmeal, fried eggs, toast and jam, yogurt and granola – but one of our favorites is a hot breakfast sandwich and a sunrise smoothie.
While we were at Meijer doing some back-to-school shopping last week, I made a stop in the grocery section. I grabbed some supplies for lunches (like Hillshire Farm® Naturals Slow Roasted Turkey – a delicious all natural lunchmeat) and ingredients for quick and easy breakfasts (like Jimmy Dean® Frozen Croissant Sausage Egg Cheese sandwiches – a filling breakfast made from real ingredients and ready to eat in under three minutes).
Heating up the Jimmy Dean® sandwiches (follow the instructions on the box) while packing the kids’ lunches saves me time in the mornings.
Add a smoothie, and the kids are fully fueled and ready for a busy day of learning!
We make lots of different smoothies at our house, but one of our favorites is the Sunrise Smoothie. With just three ingredients, this dairy-free smoothie is quick and easy, and complements the breakfast sandwiches perfectly!
Sunrise Smoothie Recipe
This recipe makes 1-2 servings and can be made with fresh or frozen fruit.
- one banana
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- one cup orange juice
- optional: 1/2 – 1 cup of ice (if not using frozen fruit)
Toss all the ingredients in a blender and pulsate on high, until smooth. Add more liquid (orange juice) to reach desired consistency.
Serve the Sunrise Smoothie in a glass with a straw alongside the Jimmy Dean® breakfast sandwiches for a quick and easy, protein-packed breakfast before rushing out the door to school!
