3 Healthy Smoothie Recipes
These smoothie recipes came with my sample Nutri Ninja (check out my review). So they are designed with the Ninja in mind. If you try these in a blender, you may want to make some changes (like no peels, seeds or apple cores).
If you are following the Weight Watchers plan, these smoothies are very low in points, delicious and filling. Since I’m doing WW, but a low carb version, these recipes have too many carbs for me at the moment. Once I’m within 10-20 lbs. of my goal weight, I’ll start adding more healthy carbs (like fruit) back into my everyday diet.
