Quick Healthy & Delicious Smoothies

While researching foods that may benefit my body, I found that berries are high in antioxidants, may cut belly fat, may help with inflammation, metabolism, etc.  They are also low in calories.
A smoothie is a quick way to enjoy and reap the benefits of the world of berries.

  3. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog today, JcCee. I’m having a good click around yours. Don’t you just love being able to throw that handful of spinach in the smoothie? You don’t even notice it’s there, and it’s a nice way to get some fresh greens. These look absolutely delicious. Love your front page.

    1. You’re welcome, Elen. I enjoyed your blog also. I love your photos and writing. Yes, it’s also a great way to get my husband and kids to eat spinach lol. Thank you so much for the kind words, and thank you for taking a look at my blog 🙂

    1. I just found out about almond milk myself. Right now, I only use it in smoothies. Sometimes I alternate between almond milk and Greek yogurt in my smoothies. Yes, look into the benefits of almond milk. One cup is about 30 calories (unsweetened). I have found that it is a healthier substitute for milk.
