Frozen fruit is a summertime favorite, and Trader Joe's has decided to cover nuggets of the stuff in dark chocolate for us. (They really care!) We're crazy about both the freezy halved strawberries and the banana coins, and we’ll be eating both for as long as they’re in stock. We all know the heartbreak of discovering our favorite treat's been discontinued, so let's show these some love...

Trader Joe's Unsweetened Almond, Cashew & Macadamia Nut Beverage 

1 cup: 30 calories, 2.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 120mg sodium, 1g carbs, <1g fiber, 0g sugars, <1g protein -- SmartPoints® value 1*

If you like a good low-calorie non-dairy milk, this one needs your attention! It’s made with a blend of three tasty nut milks: almond, cashew, and macadamia. The flavor is mellow and creamy... and the nutritional stats? We're nuts about ‘em! Try this in your hot or cold cereal, coffee, and any Hungry Girl recipe that calls for unsweetened almond milk.
And that’s all we’ve got. ‘Til next time… Chew the right thing!

Chew on this:

July is National Grilling Month! We think that corn & quinoa salad would be amazing alongside Saucy BBQ Seafood Skewers, don't you?
