Carnation Breakfast Essentials® complete nutritional drinks are packed with protein, vitamins and minerals to help start your day right.

  • 10g of Protein: Protein is essential for building and maintaining muscle. It is especially important to include protein at breakfast to help fuel muscle after an overnight fast, and to replenish the body after physical activity.
  • 21 Vitamins & Minerals: Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients you need each and every day to help keep the systems in your body working properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This review is for Cookies and Cream flavor... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love all the flavors they offer, but this Cookies and Cream flavor is super yummy! It's new and tastes like the flavor it says it is. It's sweet and I know I am getting the nutrients I need, even on the go. It's portable, very easy to take on a quick trip or easily packs up for longer trips. I grab one of these over abything else because it's better for me and fills me up like a little snack. The tastes is pretty good and I feel a bit more energized after consuming. I definitely recommend having these in your fridge for a quick pick-me-up or just no time for breakfast, grab one and go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth berry taste! I’m a Mom of three active children and I work part-time as well. My mornings are often hectic getting kids up and ready for the day. I don’t always have time to stop and eat a good breakfast. I love that I can grab a Carnation Essential Breakfast drink and feel good about getting the protein, minerals, and vitamins that I need to get my day started off. I really love that Carnation has come out with the mixed berry flavor breakfast drink. It tastes smooth and has the perfect balance of berry flavors. I will feel good giving this to my kids at snack time or to supplement their meals so that I know they are getting the nutrition that I know they need!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tastes very smooth and rich [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First on the packaging: it was smaller than what I had expected since it was a nutritional drink. So I was a little concerned that it wasn't enough to get me through the day. Next on taste: it was very smooth drink and felt rich in nutritional value. It's not as sweet so that was good. And it seemed like an easy thing to drink for the morning commute to work. After drinking it in the morning, I was surprised that it got through breakfast and by lunchtime I was ready to eat. Overall: it seemed like a good value and the simple drink is worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overloaded with Sugar I was originally drawn in by the 10 grams of protein, 21 vitamins & minerals, antioxidants that are prominent on the front. I chilled the drink and had it this morning. Upon first taste, it’s thick. It’s tastes like the leftover milk at the bottom of a bowl of sugary cereal. Once you are passed that, you are hit with the after taste of minerals and vitamins. The sugar content is overpowering. I turned the bottle over to see 41 grams of sugar!! 15 grams of that is added sugars with 0 fiber!!! I would much rather take a vitamin in the morning to get my daily dose than drink this sugary syrup. No thank you. Not for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes great anytime of the day [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really enjoyed the Carnation Instant breakfast ready to drink, and cookies & cream was a good flavor. It wasn't too sweet yet it was enough that my whole family wanted more, from my 6 year old to my husband. It was on the thin side but yet filled me up and with 10 grams of protein it complimented my yogurt and had me filled up. It makes me feel good knowing that I'm getting extra vitamins and minerals that I don't normally get. My 16 year old had one for lunch and she loved the flavor while giving me peace of mind that she had something for lunch since normally she skips eating. I definitely plan on trying other flavors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy breakfast! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My son has never been a big breakfast eater first thing in the morning. It has been a fight in my house for as long as I can remember. Thankfully, he is always thirsty in the morning so he will actually drink Carnation Breakfast Essentials without any problems. I like that he gets everything he needs in a good breakfast and he likes that he he can have his breakfast while he is getting ready for school in the mornings just by drinking it. The flavor is great. This is a win-win for our household.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth, indulgent drink [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am a long time consumer of the Carnation Breakfast essentials packets, so was excited to try another variation. I was a little hesitant to try it as it is a shelf stable drink like any other breakfast shake and the taste varies big time by brand. I decided to refrigerate my drink before trying it. It tastes like a shake I'd buy at the drive through! It has a smooth, rich taste. Who doesn't love a chocolate treat for breakfast that is giving you some of the nutrients you need to start your day.It keeps me satisfied for a decent amount of time as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Carnation breakfast essentials drinks! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Carnation breakfast essentials in any flavor have always been the best tasting good for you drink on the market! Carnation has no strange after taste at all. I’ve had all of the flavors and haven’t found any i don’t like. You know that carnation drinks are great when your child asks for it specifically and would rather have that than any other drink. You won’t be disappointed in any of the carnation drinks. Having the option of the drink in an easy grab and go bottle for when you are on the run or short on time is a wonderful option. It’s so convenient! I love Carnation and so does my family! Give it a try you won’t be disappointed!
