As spring has arrived and bikini season is quickly approaching, I am in need of a few lighter smoothie and salad options. Over the next few weeks, I will be adding these to the blog under the category of Spring Shape Up, taking some personal favorites and making them a little lighter. In general, I don’t have to worry about calories as my weight has been stable for awhile, but the prospect of bearing almost all in my adorable new bikini has me noticing I could stand to lose a few pounds. Don’t tell my husband about the new suit, it’s going to be a surprise- lol
This is actually quite a large serving, very filling and satisfying! Use frozen berries if you don’t have fresh, it’ll still taste great.
The light almond milk only has 35 calories per cup and half a cup was plenty. I added the agave for just a little sweetness, but if you leave it out, your calories are even lower!
