Creamsicle Green Smoothie

So I've made a few changes for the new year. First, our family is doing a 12 week health and fitness challenge where each week we add a new challenge. Last week was the first week and the challenge was no sugar. Along with that we exercise 30 mins/day, read scriptures, no eating after 7:30, No "soda" (or other personal challenge - for me it's chocolate). We add up the points every week and keep track of our progress. Last week was hard because I was coming off of a holiday where I ate a LOT of sweets! But surprisingly I made it the whole week without sugar. We are given 1 free day a week so you can eat a dessert once a week and not lose any points. I've really felt a lot better since I've been doing this. More energy. More patience even. It's been a really good thing.

This week I've been successful at not eating treats and the new goal for the week is to keep a food journal - keeping track of all the foods you eat every day.

So I've been trying to find new healthy recipes. I've had this one in my collection for a while, but today is the first time I tried it and wow! It's really good! It satisfies the sweet tooth without sugar and even has some healthy vitamins in it. Enjoy!!
