Smoothieaholic

I love fruit smoothies. I started making them soon after I had the twins, to help me lose some baby weight. I mainly made them just to have something healthy to fill me up in between meals so I wasn't snacking on junk food all day.
Well, I lost the baby weight and then some (not just by drinking smoothies... I wish!), but now I'm totally hooked. I make them every single day. I vary the ingredients day to day, but it always involves the Yoplait Smoothie pack, additional fresh organic frozen fruit, organic skim milk, splenda, almonds (my protein since I don't eat meat(except chicken on rare occasion)), and sometimes fat free yogurt, and an extra scoop of protein. Oh and I add about a spoonful of tasteless fiber - this really helps fill you up.


Today I made a berry smoothie which consisted of raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, black berries, and dark pitted cherries. Yummy!!!




I pour it into this 34oz mug. Yup, that's a lot of smoothie. I basically sip on it all day. I was spending way too much money on styrofoam cups, but it took me forever to find a 34oz insulated mug! I finally found one in the clearance section of Walgreens, go figure.



I love how healthy these make me feel, and I have a lot more energy than I would if I were snacking on junk food instead. I <3 my smoothies!

Looks delicious! It's always good to make your own smoothies so you know what's in them. MMmm wish I had one right now.

That looks delicious! I love smoothies too - but buy them from the supermarket. Maybe I should invest in a smoothie maker...hmmmm

I make smoothies like that too. It really is a great way to stay full during the day! I didn't even know there were insulated mugs that large... it is my new goal to find one!
