Cheerios™ "Buy a Box. Give a Free Box" +Green Berry Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Something really great is happening only at Walmart and it has to do with my all time favorite cereal. Cheerios ™ has launched the "Buy a Box. Give a Free Box" campaign where specially marked boxes of Cheerios ™ have a coupon sticker on the front of the box that contains a unique code. Shoppers can enter this code online to send a sweet e-card and mail a FREE box of Cheerios ™ to a person of their choice! 

Seeing that my family and I eat Cheerios ™ on the regular, it was a no brainer that I send a box to a bloggy friend. I sent my FREE box to Clarissa over at the fantastic mommy blog, Munchkins and Moms. As someone who blogs about parenting, wholesome kid-friendly meals, and crafts for kids, Clarissa was my first choice to send the box to. It was so easy and only took a couple of minutes. Plus, the e-card options were so creative and cute, it's sure to be a treat for her. 

If you've been following me for a while now, then you've probably seen this recipe where I used my favorite cerealWell, I thought now was a good time to share what I've been eating for breakfast all Summer long. I'm really obsessed with smoothie bowls and cerealThe coolness from the smoothie, the freshness from the fruit, and the crunch from the cereal makes this my go-to meal {not just for breakfast}.

  1. I love Cheerios, so cool that you can share a box with someone else. Your idea to mix the smoothie with the Cheerios looks so yummy. I am going to have to try that soon. Thanks for sharing!

  2. That is so cool! I haven't heard of this yet, what a fun idea for Cheerios. :) And that smoothie bowl looks ah-mazing Ashleigh!

  3. What a creative way to use Cheerios! I never would have thought to add them to a smoothie but it looks like it would be delish! #client

  4. What a neat promo they're doing! I'll have to nab a box of Cheerios and send one to someone. Your recipe looks yummy, I never would have thought to pair cereal with anything other than milk!

    Thank you for sharing with us at #MommyMeetupMondays!

  5. Oh yum! This looks so incredible! Pinned and tweeted. We love partying with you and we appreciate you stopping by! Please take a minute to stop by next week, so we can pin and tweet your new creation. The party starts on Monday at 7 pm! Have a great Saturday! Lou Lou Girls

  6. Vitamin Green tea is what I take before breakfast every day. I make Green energy drinks with wild blueberries, fresh ground Flax seed and juice or other tea, and add a banana and this is what I have to start my day.
