Make yourself a satisfying treat with this blue-cran smoothie made with fresh blueberries, greek yogurt, and cranberry juice.
Smoothies are my jam! I mean, if you couldn’t tell by the abundantly large amount of smoothie posts. And of course now that it is January 2016, everyone is looking to start a new eating habit and get more healthy foods into their diet… including me.
I workout almost everyday, but it’s the eating that I really have a problem with and I know is the reason that I do not hit my goals as quickly as I would like. So of course, this year I have set a healthy eating resolution instead of a losing weight resolution.
Actually, now that I think about it, I haven’t set a “lose weight” resolution in a very long time.
One year I made a resolution to stop drinking soda – that lasted 3+ years and then one day I started again.
Now, I don’t drink them as often as I used to but I have to occasional one now and again, and I think that’s ok.
Anyway, it’s super easy for me to drink smoothies because I have been drinking them every morning or afternoon for about 5 years now. It’s really on rare occasions that I don’t have some kind of smoothie or protein shake in a day.
Most of the time I like to drink just my regular Chocolate Shakeology, but there are also days when you need to shake things up and throw in a fruit smoothie in there.
This Blue-Cran Smoothie was the perfect answer and was sweet and tangy all at the same time.
I really enjoy tangy, sweet, and sour things.. but most of the time they come in candy form. Which I tend to stay away from. Unless it’s a chocolate bar. Girl’s gotta have a chocolate bar every once in awhile.
But to tame my sweet and tangy tooth, this is my go to since it’s packed with protein and much healthier for you than a box of sour patch kids.
