Want a large-and-in-charge fruity frozen beverage without all those annoying extra calories and sugar grams? Duh, of course you do! Check out the latest guilt-free HG sensation...
Ingredients: 1 cup frozen unsweetened strawberries 1/2 cup frozen unsweetened blueberries 1/2 tsp. Crystal Light Classic Orange Sunrise powdered drink mix (half an On The Go packet or 1/8th of a tub) 1 no-calorie sweetener packet
Directions: Place frozen fruit in the blender and allow it to thaw slightly (about a minute or two). Meanwhile, dissolve powdered drink mix and sweetener in 10 oz. of cold water. Stir well, and then pour drink mixture over the fruit in the blender. Blend at medium-high speed until thoroughly mixed. If blending slows, stop blender, stir mixture, and blend again. Pour into a tall glass and enjoy! MAKES 1 SERVING
Okay, we know what you're thinking. How can a fruit smoothie be bad? Well, the problem with most of 'em is that they're oversized and full of unnecessary ingredients -- piles of sugar, scoops of honey, full-fat milk and/or yogurt, high-calorie juices... sometimes, even spoonfuls of peanut butter or sherbet! And while there's nothing wrong with tossing back a protein-packed drink as a meal replacement, a sippable snack with over 350 calories is a little absurd. And remember, that's just an average. A small Strawberry Banana Fruit Blast Smoothie from Baskin-Robbins will cost you 490 calories. And even if you request the "Make It Skinny" version of Smoothie King's Grape Expectations II, the smallest serving will still have 451 calories, and the largest size will pack in 902 calories. In fact, a few of Smoothie K.'s crazier smoothies top out at over 1,500 calories and 50g fat -- and you can bet there are other places serving smoothies with scary stats like that! Give those freakish drinks the cold shoulder! Especially considering you can now indulge in a totally delicious fruit smoothie for only around 100 calories. It's HG's Too-Good Two-Berry Citrus Smoothie, and it'll knock your flip-flops right off!
