Smoothies

I am not a breakfast person, at all. Especially now that I have given up Diet Coke for lent, what's to look forward to? Well, I found a great smoothie! It does not replace the caffene I am craving, but it is delicious and tastes like I am cheating on my diet! I found the recipe in the Best Life Diet book by Bob Greene. Here's the recipe:

1 cup frozen mixed berries (I use the frozen berry mix from Sam's Club)
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 container of Yoplait Harvest Peach yogurt (6oz container)
1 banana

mix and enjoy!
Double if sharing! (It would be 5 Weight Watcher points, if interested)

Another low-calorie smoothie is:

Diet 7-up
Frozen Strawberries
Sweet and Low, if desired to taste

mix and enjoy! (Delicious in the Summer or for company, it can make a lot and everyone is amazed at how good so few ingredients can taste.)

Do you have a favorite smoothie?

  1. Just this past Sunday we made a trip to Sam's club and I saw the big bag of strawberries and I said to the kids Lets make Jamies famous summer slurpy strawberry surprise again! You told me about that drink last year and we love it. Funny to find it today on your blog! Your blog reminds me of summer - so bright and colorful!

  2. I LOVE smoothies. That sounds yummy. I pretty much dump any combination of frozen fruit, yogurt, juice, and bananas into the blender and something good usually comes out. (Although, I did try kiwis once and the kids didn't like the seeds in it.) I will have to try this one. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi Jamie-First of all your post yesterday was so, so sweet. I love your sentiments. Thanks for including me in you "friends" list. I am honored that you consider me a friend. wish we lived closer and could be friends face to face.
    I am ashamed to admit I have a smoothie machine and have only made a half dozen or so. I really like them-it seems when I'm in the mood, I don't have the ingredients.
    But you encouraged me to give it another try! ha Nerm
