I am the Mistress of Smoothies! Scratch that... I am the Smoothie Queen!!

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

In my attempts to eat better I've decided to implement some smoothies and/or shakes into my diet. I'm not using the Shakes by Vi or Shakeology, but I think I'm doing a pretty rockin' job at making some good (both taste-wise and health-wise) shakes! Today I had a delish pineapple smoothie for breakfast with a Luna Bar that I've been assured *IS* healthy, though the delectable taste would cause me to think otherwise!! And for dinner I made a chocolate-cherry-vanilla-almon
d super smoothie!

I used about a cup of frozen cherries, a cup of Original Silk Pure Almond Milk, two scoops of protein powder (vanilla flavored 50% Soy/50% Whey), and a tablespoon and a half of some chocolate smoothie mix that I got at the store. Oh, and about a cup of ice (duh)! It is SO good and super filling!!! Plus, it only has 247 calories, 68 carbs, 4 grams of fat, and 16 grams of protein!

My breakfast smoothie had 1 cup of fresh-frozen diced pineapple, 1 tablespoon of pineapple smoothie mix, and 2/3 cup of water with a cup of ice. I'm thinking of adding protein tomorrow... I only got the protein powder today!

I will alert you when the crowning ceremony has been scheduled and I'll try to share other great smoothie recipes as I find/create them!

    All Hail to the Smoothie Queen!! Don't you just LOVE them?! One of my favorites in mango and blueberry. Because you add ice, the blueberry skins really disappear in the blender. They are yummy and good for you too!!
