Woohoo it’s FRIDAY!! Today i’m extra happy, because my little sister turns 21!!
Happy, happy birthday, Katie!
SOO happy to be out of town for a couple nights to celebrate!
On another note…can’t believe I have only posted one smoothie recipe!!
I drink one nearly everyday (Banana Almond Breakfast Smoothie) for breakfast…and on the mornings I don’t have one, well lets just say I have withdrawals. What can I say, i’m addicted. Just a little bit.
I actually use to work at an Herbalife shake place during college, and had protein shakes EVERY day. Sometimes even 2 times.
I lost quite a bit of extra weight, and and increased my awareness of what I was eating.
Anways, gone are the days of Herbalife shakes for this girl. I prefer to have a homemade smoothie made with real foods that I eat instead of powder.
I’m always looking for new ways to do things, and new products because lets face it, life is boring if you don’t branch out from the norm!
Last Friday I introduced you to My new FAVORITE yogurt – Siggi’s.
I’m in love with their probiotic yogurt drink.
Probiotic, huh? Basically it’s the same thing as yogurt…active bacteria.
One day, I decided to add Siggi’s yogurt drink in a smoothie instead of plain greek yogurt.
And voila, YUMMY success! The Siggi’s yogurt drink seemed to make a super thick and creamy smoothie!
Choosing the flavors for this smoothie seemed obvious to me. Everyone seems to be obsessed with blueberry and lemon combo including me, but it’s rarely seen in smoothies.
Perfect chance to make one.
I’m totally obsessed with all things lemon. If you follow my instagram you can tell.
Here’s the recipe, Enjoy 🙂
