Skinny Winter Smoothie!

  January 3, 2015  |    Blog>Recipes

As twins who LOVE the summer time, we have one word—Brrr!!! 😉 It’s cold out!  And while our clients do all tell us the feel like eating healthy foods more in the summer than in the winter, we’ve got something to make your forget about that and the cold with this delish skinny winter smoothie that’s tasty and healthy and that helps you to follow our New Years Resolutions tips.

 Skinny Winter Smoothie

This treat is sweet and satisfying without any added sugar! The goal is to reset your “sweet” taste buds by choosing treats with no added sugar or artificial sweetener. By limiting very sweet flavors your taste buds will “reset” themselves as they lower their perception of sweetness. Allow fruit to satisfy your sweet tooth—and you’ll be amazed by how well it works! When you go back to sugary foods, you’ll need less sweet flavor to satisfy you. Plus, if you saw our New Year’s Resolution article you know that refined sugars typically add a lot of calories without nutrients, contributing to weight gain—and they also often increase cravings. They seem to weaken the immune system too by reducing your white blood cells’ ability to destroy bacteria. So get your sweet fix with our Skinny Winter Smoothie!

We recommend having this delicious healthy smoothie as a sweet treat, a healthy snack, or having 2 servings for breakfast with a hard-cooked Eggland’s Best egg.  We use Eggland’s Best eggs because they are the only egg with special nutrients like 4 X the vitamin D of other eggs and double the omega 3s. Plus, they have 25% less saturated fat than other eggs.
