The weather has really started to warm up around here, and it seems like I am suddenly realizing that the season of shorts, cute summer dresses, and swimsuits is right around the corner. (Please tell me I am not the only one who is panicking just a little over this. ;) ) We literally went from one weekend of temperatures in the 30's with 2 inches of snow on the ground to the next weekend being sunny with temps hitting over 70 degrees! So now that I am realizing that soon I won't be able to hide the extra "padding" I have acquired over winter inside my big comfy sweaters anymore, I have been making a few changes to my diet and to my exercise routine. And yes, I end up doing pretty much this exact same thing every. single. spring.
One change that I am making right now is cutting back on calories by making little swaps here and there. A glass of iced water with a squeeze of lemon instead of pop. A piece of fruit instead of a cookie. And swapping my usual sugar in my morning coffee, evening tea, and smoothies with 0-calorie Equal® packets. One of my favorite ways to get in my servings of fruit a day and stay cool as the temperatures start to get warmer is with a refreshing, frosty smoothie. This Double Berry Tea Smoothie combines your favorite berry flavored tea & frozen berries to make a delicious low calorie frosty treat...
Double Berry Tea Smoothie
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: None
Ingredients (Serves 1)
- 1 1/2 cups of your favorite berry flavored tea, steeped & then chilled
- 1-2 packets of Equal® packets (to your taste preference)
- 1/3 cup of frozen strawberries, chopped
- 1/2 cup frozen blackberries
- 2/3 cup crushed ice
Make the berry flavored tea a few hours before you plan to make your smoothie (or even the night before like I did). After steeping your tea, stir in the Equal® packet(s) while the tea is still warm. Chill in your fridge for a few hours or overnight.
To make your smoothie, add all the ingredients to your blender and blend until everything is well incorporated & smooth. Garnish with a fresh or frozen blackberry & strawberry, if desired. Enjoy immediately.
