How are mornings at your house?  If the answer is “rushed”, “hectic”, “chaotic” you’re not alone.  This weekend was the dreaded daylight savings time, spring forward fiasco.  If you have school aged kids, you know exactly why I used the word “fiasco.”  This time change puts a serious amount of stress on an already difficult morning routine.  Getting my child dressed, fed, and out the door is hard enough as it is, and then add sleep deprivation to all parties involved…well, you’re lucky if everyone gets out the door without tears!

I’m here to help…at least for getting you and your kids fed.  (As for the sleep deprivation, and getting dressed and whatnot, well, I don’t have many solutions.)  🙂  I do, however, have a quick, easy, healthy kid-friendly breakfast option that will help your morning routine tremendously!  This Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie is the perfect breakfast option that can be made in less than 5 minutes, and if need be, can be drank in a to-go cup in the car!

This recipe is super simple, and only requires 5 ingredients and a blender.  It tastes amazing, and is pretty healthy.  You’re getting plenty of protein from the Greek yogurt and peanut butter, nearly two servings of dairy, and a serving of fruit!  You can use regular cows milk, or using almond milk is really tasty as well!   The creamy texture of the Greek yogurt is complemented by the crunchy peanut butter, which brings it all together!
