Sweet Berry Smoothie (+$100 Gift Card!)


 
I laugh when I think back to life before Camden came along when I thought I was soooo busy.

Not even close!

These past 11 weeks with a baby has taught me that regardless of how busy I am, it's still so important to have "me" time, even if it's just something small! Taking a hot bath... getting in a quick shopping trip... and my personal favorite, taking my weekly spin class and treating myself to a yummy smoothie afterwards. It's enough to leave me feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day!

This smoothie recipe I have to share today is a favorite of mine. I used to make a similar one all the time but it's gotten better because of changing a few things here and there and adding a sweet twist to make it even more delicious...


Sweet Berry Smoothie
+1 cup almond milk
+1 scoop whey protein
+Handful of strawberries
+Handful of raspberries
+1 banana
+1 packet of Born Sweet™ Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener

Have you tried Zing™, ladies? That's the extra sweet twist I added to this recipe!

It makes smoothies even better and is really sweet and delicious! Not to mention, it has real ingredients (no artificial ingredients!) and zero calories, which makes it a winner in my book. You can also sprinkle it in your favorite coffee and tea for the day. The sweetness (which comes from extract of the stevia plant) definitely gives my favorite drinks a taste of sweet excitement that it wouldn't have otherwise!

 
Anyone else serve their smoothies in fun wine glasses? I have an obsession with doing this...
