Healthy Drink Week 2

As many of you know I’m been doing my work out at home with Jillian Kettlebell DVD.  I’ve been even better about my eating habits no snacking on crap during the day and doing a healthy smoothie in the morning for breakfast.  I really never thought this would feel me up but it’s actually doing the trick.  This week I tried a new recipe and I must admit it’s not as tasty as the Green Monster I posted last week and is not as filling.  I know you would think I would like the one that was more fruity.  Here is the Kate’s Power Smoothie I found for this week.



Kate’s Power Smoothie

Recipe by Our Best Bites

1 cup orange juice (preferably the good stuff, like the not-from-concentrate orange juice)
3 tablespoons oat groats or 2 tablespoons steel cut oats (optional…kind of…)*
3/4 cup fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt (make sure it’s Greek and not Greek-style)
1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
3 cups baby spinach leaves
1 1/2 cups crushed ice

Combine ingredients in the jar of your blender and blend. You may (read: probably will) need to run it through twice. Serve immediately. Makes 1 giant smoothie, 2 smaller smoothies, or 3 snack-sized smoothies.

I used Steel cut oats since that is what I could find.

This was made with blueberries and you would think I would LOVE this over the GREEN one from last week but not really. LOL I know who would think a Green shake in the morning would be ideal for me.  I have decided a whole week of this would not be good since I get hungry to quick after drinking it and don’t want to get into the habit of snacks again.  So I am going to try a new one I found has tofu.  I’m a little scared but let’s wish me luck!

On a side note the boys started up swim again 2 days a week.  Tuesdays are going to be my down fall since swim is right after school and then we come home and our Tuesday dinner friends come right over.  So no work out that day, BUT I’m going to stick to 5 days a week with my DVD instead of 6 so I don’t feel too guilty.  When it gets nicer out we can take the kids to walk to make up for it!  I’m on a mission Smile.


  1. This recipe sounds pretty good and I think I have all the ingredients!

  2. I have a favorite recipe that I use for my "green drink" that I would be happy to share if you want to give it a try...

  3. At least you didn't ask what was for supper.

    I am fixing fish sandwiches for lunch with cherry pie and ice cream.

    No smoothies for me. LOL

  4. You're doing so great, and this one looks like something I could tolerate!

  5. We have been having smoothies as snacks lately. Its nice to get some fruit in during the day. I do want to try some vrggies in them too...I just haven't yet.

  10. An interesting beverage, sounds good.
    How do you like kettlebell training? I use dumbells most of the time but have watched that late-night infomercial several times. If I see a kettlebell at a garage sale I might get one.
