With the warmer weather ever so slowly edging in, it’s time to break out the blender for a refreshing smoothie. I like to drink smoothies as a snack or as part of a meal but not as a replacement for a meal. I prefer my smoothies to be healthy but light in the calories department.
All of the refreshing taste and flavor for half of the calories, not that the old recipe was bad, but it totally did not need the yogurt. The serving size is also smaller without the yogurt but I don’t miss the larger size. It’s still enough for a nice cool down.
