Erica's Green Smoothie

This has been my go to recipe for smoothies since I started on my weight loss journey.  It helped out a lot when I was craving something creamy and sweet.  When I first started making it, I was adding a packet of Truvia.  Now if I add it, it is WAY too sweet. 


Erica's Green Smoothie
1 c. Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 container of Fat Free Vanilla Yogurt
1 medium banana
2 Tbsp. Flax Seed
1 serving frozen berries, (I like strawberries or the mixed berries.)  1 serving is about 2/3-1 cup
1 HUGE handful of spinach
If you like it a little thicker add a handful of ice
estimated calories 381

Even my kids love them.  I have to pour them their own cup every time.'s pretty much healthy, so I don't mind.  Yay for spinach!!!  Here, McCoy is waiting for me to give him his share.  Stinker.

 My diet so far has been very successful.  I'm down 18 lbs!  I have about 5 more to go to hit my goal.  So excited with the progress I've made.  Sticking to a strict 1200 calorie diet and exercise plan has been hard, but so worth it!!  I do cheat on the weekends, so I can get my junk food fix.  I think it's helped out a lot that way.  I can't cut it out completely.  NO WAY!  Love my sweets!

Happy Wednesday!!
Love, Erica
