Nut Butter Breakfast Smoothies

One of my main staples when I run to the grocery store is to stock up on granola bars as John and I are huge fans of a “grab-and-go” breakfast. A brand that is always tossed into my grocery cart is Kashi and their scrumptious granola bar options. We have always had our favorite kinds that we would each grab in the morning with the exception of John reaching for one of mine when he ate through all of his too fast. So, to say that I was excited when Kashi sent me all their new Chewy Nut Butter Bars for free to try out and experiment with is a huge understatement. I immediately snatched one out of each box to sample and ended up eating the whole darn bar each time. They are just THAT good.

If you are anything like me, breakfast is not on the forefront of your mind (with the exception of coffee) and a granola bar or handheld snack is what you fall back on when you are scampering to get out of the door.
