When I said I wanted to drink my breakfast, this was not exactly what I had in mind.  Yet, being not given option for my original desires, this is a good substitute.  For this I used a whey protein substitute fortified with iron as I have a condition in which proteins and irons are rapidly consumed by my system and if I don’t consume enough to counter things go south real fast. You could just as well use Carnation style instant breakfast if you desired.

To make is exceptionally simple. (For single serving):  1 banana, 1 slice mango, 1 scoop protein mix or 1 packet instant breakfast (Flavor of choice), 1/2 cup plain yogurt, 1/2 cup milk, 1 tbsp honey, 2 tbsp wheat germ.

Place in blender (I use a rocket blender but any would work),  and pulse until liquefied.  Serve immediately.

A simple breakfast or mid-morning, afternoon snack that is tasty, holds you over and is healthy for you too.   These are excellent for children with the Instant breakfasts to help get nutrition into the more picky eaters, as well as for elderly.  These shakes (minus the honey) were one of the first foods I used while transitioning them into solids.
