I am a huge sugar addict! I love anything sweet. Like, LOVE!
My resolution this year is to lessen the amount of sugar that I consume. I’m not trying to cut it out altogether, just eat less of it…I mean, I’m not a hero.
I know there are tons of sugar alternatives out there, but I don’t like to sacrifice taste for lower calories. Fake sweeteners are not something I like at all. Even when they are well hidden, I can taste them.
I’m always on the lookout for a sweet treat that I don’t have to feel so guilty about. When I’m dying for a cookie or a piece of cake, I try to remind myself that a naturally sweet treat is fruit. Berries are my favorite.
Whipping up a quick Berry Medley Smoothie is an easy way to satisfy my sweet tooth. I want to make a berry shake with ice cream, but because I’m trying to be “good,” I use Trop50 orange juice to smooth out my treat.
Trop50 offers the great-tasting goodness of orange juice with 50% less sugar and calories. Trop50 is squeezed from fresh oranges, provides 100% of your vitamin C needs and has no artificial sweetener. I honestly have no idea how they do it. Each 8-oz. glass has 100% of your day’s vitamin C and is also a good source of potassium. Pairing it with mixed berries in my smoothie just makes the amount of vitamin C that much sweeter (total pun intended).
This Berry Medley Smoothie couldn’t be easier to make. Four simple ingredients and a blender…that’s all you need!
I love making people’s lives easier and if making a change in their diet is an easy change, then I’m all for it!
