Last year, when I lost a lot of weight, I discovered an easy 150 calorie snack option that got me a serving of dairy + a serving of fruit and had quite the punch of fiber and protein. Plus, it is super easy to make and left me feeling full.
Even though, I’m not counting calories right now, I still make this easy 150 calorie smoothie for a snack so I don’t eat a handful of sour patch kids.
- ¾ c frozen mixed berries (60 cal)
- 1 cup non-fat or soy milk (90 cal)
- Place in blender and mix until blended completely.
At first I was using soy milk, but then I discovered Hood Simply Smart Fat Free Milk. It has the same number of calories per cup (90 calories), but has a whopping 10 grams of protein!
To make things super easy on myself, I blend it up in my personal blender until smooth so all I have to do is flip it over, add a straw and it becomes a cup. Then, I try to drink it as fast as I can so my girls don’t scoop it up!
Recently, we had a little Spa day at my house thanks to Hood, and they made a similar drink, there’s had even more protein because they also added Greek Yogurt.
*Thank you to Hood for introducing me and some friends to the Hood Simply Smart Fat Free Milk and a couple different ways to try it out. They paid for the party and hosting the event. All thoughts are 100% my own.
