the breakfast project {got milk?}

by @according2kelly on August 16, 2012


while a typical day doesn’t usually involve lights, cameras, crafts services & someone calling action… our mornings always really do begin with milk.


whether it’s in a bowl of cereal or a fruity smoothie, milk helps our family fuel up to face the morning chaos!

while i usually wake up early, to get in a work out, we always eat breakfast together – as a family.

the breakfast project {the movie}

while my kids prefer cereal with milk, i love a refreshing & cool smoothie.

want to power up with your own mango tango smoothie?

mango tango smoothie

1 cup fat free or lowfat milk
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1 small banana, frozen or fresh

combine all ingredients in blender, and blend until very smooth.

best enjoyed in a chilled glass with a fun straw!

for even more quick & nutritious breakfast ideas for your family visit or

so now, i want to know… how does milk fuel YOUR day? cereal with milk? smoothies? how does milk help you “accomplish” the morning?

disclaimer: i am proud to be apart of the breakfast project. while i was compensated for filming this vignette, it is based on our reality – our days really & truly are fueled by milk. at any given time you will find at least 4 gallons of “white” milk & 1 gallon of “chocolate” milk in our refrigerator. we always “got milk!”

I love this Kelly! I grew up on a dairy farm near Tillamook, OR so I drink a lot of milk, eat a lot of cheese, and indulge in a lot of ice cream. Yum!
