When I told my sister that I was going to experiment with a delicious product that I just discovered, belVita’s Breakfast Biscuits, she told me that she had been enjoying them for quite some time. When I told my husband about my smoothie ideas using belVita’s Breakfast Biscuits, he said that his building frequently stocks them and he loves them. Say what?! Have I been living under a rock? Apparently, I have been! Oh well, that’s what happens when you are surrounded by little ones. Here’s to discovering “new to me” products and enjoying them in these 3 amazing smoothies.

Our weekday mornings are always a huge rush. I have one very demanding early riser, who’s the first to leave on the bus, and three more to send off an hour later. My eight year old is the sleepy one, and barely makes the bus with a full breakfast. I guarantee my kids would happily eat belVita Breakfast Biscuits alone, which provide four hours of nutritious steady energy.  I also know that if I could incorporate them into Breakfast Smoothies it would be a Morning Win for all of us!  3 absolutely delicious Breakfast Smoothies all made with belVita Breakfast Biscuits! - KidFriendlyThingsToDo.com   My first task was to find flavors that I know we would all enjoy in a smoothie. I found these delicious flavors (Soft Baked Mixed Berry, Crisp Cranberry Orange, and Crisp Blueberry) at my local Meijer store. They were so easy to find. I just went down the Cookie & Cracker Aisle. Meijer stores are so organized that it’s easy to find them.

Back home, I got to work with these essential smoothie ingredients and let the magic begin for my Morning Win! When I finished, I couldn’t wait for a taste test. It’s funny how everyone prefers something different. I am in L-O-V-E with the Tangy Orange & Cranberry flavored smoothie. I’m telling you, it will slap you awake! My husband and sister love the Berry flavored smoothie, and my eight year old only wants the Blueberry!    3 absolutely delicious Breakfast Smoothies all made with belVita Breakfast Biscuits! - KidFriendlyThingsToDo.com

  1. I love this idea. We have been making smoothies lately after all the holiday indulging and the only problem is I feel hungry pretty quickly afterwards. I really think adding the BelVita biscuits could be the perfect solution to this problem. Thanks for sharing this great information!

    • I know what you mean. We need a balance of light yet filling. The Breakfast Biscuits really do give the smoothies a little more substance.

  2. I always have belvita breakfast bisquits in the house. So when I noticed that three of the bags were crushed, I decided to check out different recipes to use what was left… (Crumbs), basically! I drink smoothies every morning and incorporating belvita into my smoothies is a great idea!

    • Oh my goodness…what a perfect solution! I’m so glad you found a good use for your Belvita crumbs. 🙂 You’ll have to let me know what you think of the recipes. I am in love with the tangy orange and cranberry!
