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. Hey...it'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!
