Healthy Dessert Smoothie
To celebrate February's National Heart Month, we've "gone red" and created this heart healthy dessert. Replace the cheesecake with this tasty fruit filled smoothie or drink as a juice replacement at breakfast. Ingredients: 7-10 Strawberries 7-10 Red Grapes 4 Teaspoons of Pomegranates ** 1 serving of Greek Yogurt - I used vanilla flavored. 1/4 Cup of Almond Milk or Water Directions: Put all ingredients into a blender and mix until you reach desired texture. This only took about 30-45seconds in my Health Master Blender. ** Substitute the pomegranates for 7-10 raspberries, if you don't have or like pomegranates. To impress, always garnish with a piece of fresh fruit. If you want to increase the nutritional value, throw in a handful of baby spinach. (We will save this recipe for St. Patrick's Day!) I topped it off with homemade whipped cream. About the Author: Karen Welby is the Marketing Director at EatSmart Products and a Personal Trainer/Health Coach.
