After returning from our trip to Disney, I sat here last Tuesday just disgusted about my weight. You know you are in trouble when your big pants are getting too tight. (I refuse to go up yet another size.)
So, I joined Weight Watchers online, AGAIN. I keep seeing those ads where Jennifer Hudson says, …”Because it works!”
Yeah, I suppose if you stick to any weight loss plan, it will work – the trouble is sticking to it. Am I right? I am happy to report, however, that I just about made it through one week, and I’ve followed the program now consistently for seven whole days and lost about 3 pounds. (The first week is always easy for me.)
Anyway, I came up with my own smoothie recipe (I’m sure this is a dup. somewhere, but honestly, I threw these items in the blender.) If you follow the Weight Watchers points program, this smoothie is actually 8 PointsPlus. I corrected this from an incorrect count of 2 PointsPlus. I added this recipe in the Weight Watchers recipe builder and it is 8 PointsPlus. Fruit in recipes must be counted.
For everyone else, it’s a healthy, low-fat, homemade treat full of potassium, calcium and vitamin C just to name few! Be sure to check out my other post about blueberries and their link to weight loss.
Easy Fruit Smoothie Recipe Weight Watchers 2 Points
1 cup frozen strawberries (no sugar added)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries (no sugar added)
1 medium banana
1/2 cup skim milk (1 pt.)
2 oz. Chobani non-fat Greek yogurt (1 pt.)
Add all of these items to your blender and blend. If it’s too thick, add a little water. Also, I added one Splenda w/fiber for a little more sweetness.
I know some people like to add protein powder to their smoothies to make it a more filling treat, so feel free. I’ve been having this in the afternoon and I find it to be very filling, despite the low amount of protein.
How about you? Have you tried the new Weight Watchers Points Plus? Be the first to comment.
