My husband and I have been on our weight loss journey for a few months now. While my weight has gone down 20ish lbs, I’m also excited to see the non-scale victories. I was having random aches/pains, my jeans were tight, none of my dresses fit and I just felt so blah. I also can’t eat nearly as much as I used to be able to. The portion control has been helping! I love being back on track again and enjoying healthier foods, like this great smoothie!
Since the weather is warming up, I just had to fork out the blender. I love the combination of apples with berries, so I had to make this into a smoothie! The wonderful thing about using frozen berries is that you don’t even need to use ice! So it’s chock-full of fruity flavors! After I drank this, I actually felt super full afterwards. This simple smoothie includes Rainier Fruit’s Lady Alice Apples, frozen berries, vanilla yogurt, milk & honey. It couldn’t be any easier to make, and it’s absolutely delicious!
