One of our favorite dessert or snack options is a fresh smoothie. They are easy to make, healthy (if you make them right!), and always delicious!
Keep in mind that you should not be consuming several smoothies each day. Some fruits can be pretty high in sugar, and most people should only be having about 2 servings of fruit per day (a serving is about the size of your closed fist). If you are trying to lose weight, you should probably be eating less than that.
With that in mind, let’s make a smoothie!
Our smoothies generally consist of 1 banana, about 1 cup of fresh or frozen fruit, about 1 cup of coconut milk, a healthy sprinkle of cinnamon, and some ice. Tonight we had raspberries, so that was our flavor choice.
