It’s that time of year again. Has everyone jumped on the diet bandwagon yet? The first of the year tends to get everyone ready to start off with eating right and exercising.
I’m right there with you. Bring on the salads and smoothies!!!
We started an herbal cleanse and healthy eating on January 1st. Yes, we are stereotypical here, too. It is time to say bye, bye to the cupcake butt and cookie thighs I developed from enjoyed way too many holiday treats last month. My jeans want to be happy again.
Exercise hasn’t happened here yet because we haven’t found a new gym, but we did order some slam balls, kettlebells, and a rowing machine for the garage. Fingers crossed it gets here today because I’m ready for that exercise routine to be back in place. ( I say that now…ask me in a week)
One thing that we have been making a lot of the past week is a fruit smoothie. The kids prefer just orange juice and frozen fruit in theirs, but my hubby and I love adding some protein powder and yogurt for that extra protein boost.
That extra bit of protein helps to fill you up and keep you from being hungry an hour later. This skinny cherry banana smoothie is one of my favorites, but I wanted another flavor to alternate with.
I grabbed a bag of frozen raspberries and some mint leaves the last time I was at the store. The fresh mint leaves just add a little bit of something different to the smoothie.
There is a freshness that I really enjoyed from the leaves. Feel free to add more mint leaves or leave them out. It’s totally your call.
This particular smoothie makes two small drinks or one large drink. If you are having it as a snack, share the other one with someone else or freeze the other one for later.
I like to drink the full smoothie as my lunch replacement. It’s enough that I am not hungry again until dinnertime. Then I’m ready for a bowl of lean mean veggie soup or a big strawberry orange spinach salad with chicken.
I think a few more smoothie varieties may be happening in the next few weeks. Would you be interested in the recipes? I know I am always looking for new flavors to change up the same old lunch routine.
Until then, enjoy another skinny raspberry mint smoothie. The fresh flavor will wake up your taste buds.
