Good afternoon peeps!
I hope everyone is feeling good and enjoying their weekend!
Have you ever been in the middle of something and then all of the sudden a strong and uncontrollable food craving comes over you? Well that’s what happened to me the other day. I was in the middle of a booty beat work-out class when all of this sudden this strong craving for lemon and strawberry came over me and it was all I could think about. I think it might have had something to do with the strawberry-lemon waffles my girlfriends and I had earlier in the week at Bay Bay’s Chicken and Waffles. Bay Bay’s has quickly become one of my favorite places to eat with friends 🙂
The lemon and strawberry in the waffle was sweet and tasty and I think it unlocked something in my taste buds that had me craving more – however something in a healthier and creamier variety. So as soon as I got home, I looked up some lemon-strawberry smoothie recipes online and then got to work in the kitchen. I ended up making some changes and modifications to the recipes and came up with my own concoction below. The result was sweet, smooth, creamy, berry-citrusy goodness that was only 212 calories that can be enjoyed for breakfast or as a dessert.
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk
- 1/2 cup of fat free Greek yogurt
- sliced strawberries
- fresh squeezed lemon juice and some lemon zest
- 1/2 frozen banana
- tbsp of chia seeds
I have been experimenting with my smoothies lately by using different ingredients that I don’t normally use such as: cucumber and radishes. I also want to start using papaya, apricot, apple, carrot and pomegranate. I will keep you posted and share them with you in case you’re looking to try something new. And please feel free to share any smoothie recipes with me as well 🙂
Ta ta for now!
