By trying to get in my healthy guidelines, I have been spending a substantial amount of the grocery budget on fresh fruit and veggies — but I am really enjoying the blueberries and strawberries that are on sale each week. For the past two weeks, I have been using the Weight Watcher’s smoothies — in chocolate and coconut — for my afternoon snack and they are a perfect treat!
Inside the chocolate smoothie box, there is a small recipe guide — one of my favorites was the Mocha Frappachino, which uses 2/3 cup of milk, 1/3 cup of cold brewed coffee, a handful of ice and the smoothie mix — AMAZING. It really perked me up in the afternoon when I needed an energy boost and the best part was I didn’t have to pay $3+ for a pricey coffee drink.
Since I have all these berries in the refrigerator, it was awesome to find the Very Blueberry Smoothie recipe on Skinnytaste — and it didn’t require 30 ingredients just to make a smoothie. Blueberries have so many health benefits, including:
- High number of antioxidants
- Helps reduce belly fat
- Aids in digestion
Works for me!
Here’s the recipe from the Skinnytaste website:
- 3/4 cup of fresh blueberries
- 6 ounces (one small container) of nonfat blueberry yogurt — Gina suggests using the WW nonfat blueberry yogurt
- 1 cup ice
Add everything to a blender! Simple as that. It’s really delicious and creamy, not to mention all of the other health benefits. A one cup serving of the smoothie (the recipe makes 2 cups) is only 2 PP.
