Bikini season is creeping up on us you know (well maybe for some of you it’s bikini season). I laugh and say if they make a bikini that comes in a turtleneck and hangs to my knees I’m all set. This girl will never be bikini ready again. It’s just a reality at my age things just don’t look as good as they did in my 20’s and I wouldn’t want to scare anyone by revealing all that flesh at one time.
But on a better note if you’re looking to drop a few pounds this shake is a yummy, satisfying, and filling meal replacement. You can even replace 2 meals a day if you wanted and for the remaining meal just eat healthy. I also love a smoothie because it’s fast and I can take it on the go. With the weather starting to get warmer, it looks like we’ll be in the 60’s this week, I welcome a smoothie rather than a hot breakfast.
I have tried several blenders and find the more expensive ones don’t always work better for liquefying the frozen berries or crushing ice, so do some research before buying. If you find your blender isn’t doing the job you may want to make a change. The one I use is Healthmaster Elite, I’ve tried others like the Kitchenaid (that’s way more expensive) and find it can’t hold up to frozen things the gear at the bottom always becomes stripped, and I’m normally a huge fan of Kitchenaid products. The idea behind a smoothie is to get a shake like texture not a lumpy drink right?
So give this a try when and let me know what you think, and believe me you’ll never taste that handful of spinach you drop in. Is anyone else in a mad rush to get a few pounds off before summer?
- I Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder (Plant Fusion Phood Shake is my Favorite)
- 1 Cup Frozen Strawberries (Unsweetened)
- 1 tsp. Almond Butter (Sugar Free all Natural)
- 1 Handful Fresh Spinach
- 12 oz. Coconut Milk
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend. If you like your shake thicker reduce the coconut milk, and if you like it thinner add more coconut milk.
