Happy Memorial Day, how are you spending this day off? I'm as usual, very busy today and just trying to get it all done so I can have some time off with my family. My day begun in the normal way, with me getting up later than I had planned and almost no time to eat. Without a lot of time but with my stomach craving something, it was time to pull out the Carnation Breakfast Essentials, some milk and fresh strawberries. This is my go-to breakfast when I am running late and also makes a great snack for anytime of day. Licuado de Fresa is something I have enjoyed since we were very little, it's one of my moms specialties and her recipe comes from my great-great abuelitas recipe in Mexico. My mom makes this same smoothie or licuado in several varieties, all featuring fresh fruit. Sometimes she will make Licuado de Platano with Chocomilk, other times she will make Licuado de Melon or Licuado de Arandanos. As long as you have some skim milk (or water) and fresh fruit on hand, you can make this smoothie very quickly. I enjoy adding Carnation Breakfast Essentials in vanilla or strawberry flavor to my smoothie to make it more nutritious. Each serving of Carnation Breakfast Essentials is packed with protein and 21 vitamins & minerals, which make my regular smoothie a SUPER SMOOTHIE which can help me start the day with energy. 


We love smoothies and they are the reason why we always keep fresh fruit on hand. Strawberries are priced very low right now at the store, which makes it easy to enjoy a smoothie daily. I never met my great-great abuelita, but she her licuados are still being enjoyed by her family. I have aunts and cousins who really make her traditional recipe like my mom, I've just made it a little healthier, which I think she would appreciate.
