Soooooo.... today is my birthday, you all. But it just isn't any ole birthday for me. It just so happens to be my 40th birthday. Yep, the BIG 4-0. I have to admit that it is kind of weird to be saying goodbye to my thirties and officially entering a brand new decade of my life. But I am also excited for what the next 10 years will bring. :)

I have spent the last few months of my 39th year of life making some healthier lifestyle changes. I get to the gym at least 3-4 times a week now. I do yoga at home at least twice a week. I try to give myself mental health breaks more often when I start to feel like my work to life balance is getting a little off kilter. And I have been trying to make healthier choices as far as my diet goes. But when you happen to have a mean sweet tooth like I do, then that last part can be a little tricky at times.

My ultimate guilty pleasure happens to be ice cream. Like I could eat ice cream every single day. And now that I have discovered Breyers delights, I actually can enjoy my favorite frozen treat minus the guilt more often... ;)

Breyers delights comes in 4 classic flavors- Vanilla Bean, Creamy Chocolate, Mint Chip, and my personal favorite- Cookies & Cream. Made with natural, quality ingredients, Breyers delights lets me satisfy that sweet tooth without sacrificing my healthier lifestyle. Plus, it is easy & convenient for me to toss a pint (or two!) into my shopping cart as I am doing my weekly grocery shopping at my local Giant Eagle.

While Breyers delights are definitely delicious straight from the carton, I wanted to do a little something special with my favorite flavor for my birthday today. This Cookies & Cream Banana Birthday Shake is actually inspired by a milkshake recipe I found on the Breyers website, but I gave it my own little festive twist by adding in Birthday Cake Oreo cookies & rainbow sprinkles. 

Thanks to Breyers delights, this creamy & fun milkshake lets me celebrate turning the big 4-0 without giving up the strides I have already made towards living a healthier lifestyle. I call that a win-win, folks! :)
