This week was my daughter’s first week back at school and as you can imagine it’s been a mad house in the mornings here. Like total insanity! Half the time last year, I didn’t have time to make myself a breakfast and would grab a cup of coffee as I ran out the door to take my daughter to school. This year I vow to be better to myself and have a better breakfast. I need to think up more easy meals for me and my family, don’t I.
Nestle challenged me to create a quick and easy breakfast solution using a couple of the Nestle Meal Solutions products. Well, I went a bit overboard and created this Coconut Cream Blended Coffee Breakfast using three of my family’s favorite Nestle products.
What I especially love about this super quick and easy blended coffee is that it really is a complete breakfast since I used a vanilla instant breakfast packet too. I know….this is starting to sound strange but I promise I’ve gotten two thumbs up from everyone who has tried it. The other totally awesome thing is that you can dirty up only the blender but feed everyone in the family with this tasty drink.
Make one for the kids sans coffee before they run out the door for school and then quickly blend up a second batch for the coffee fans in the family. It’s the perfect breakfast for hectic school mornings.
