Like most women around this time of year, I’m a little fixated on getting the perfect “bikini body” – Although, who am I kidding…I haven’t worn a bikini in 3 years. It’s either a one piece or a baggy T-shirt for this gal. So let’s just say, I’m fixated on getting bathing suit ready. I even went so far as to join Weight Watchers in an attempt to turn things around. Although I lost about 7-ish pounds through the program, it more or less just taught me that I’m already eating well, I just need to exercise more. So I quit the diet…(and took up Zumba)
But one OTHER great thing I learned while on this little quest of mine was the glory of a morning smoothie. Quick, tasty and almost too good to be true Weight-Watchers-point-wise, I’m now addicted and can barely begin my day without one. That said, I thought it would be fun to share the recipe I’ve been using as well as the corresponding point balance in case any of you are loyal Weight Watchers members.
Strawberry & Banana Smoothie
1/2 banana, sliced (0 points)
Combine ingredients in blender and puree until smooth. Makes 1 and 1/2 servings. (Total Weight Watcher’s Points: 5)
P.S. We are coming home from the beach tomorrow…A sad sad day to be sure, but I’m glad to be coming back to reality and a routine. I can’t wait to share all of our adventures with you next week! Stay tuned…
