Blueberries and Cream Shooters

Hi Everyone!

How are you on this Saturday?  I’m doing good now that the weekend is here.  Today Little Jenny are going to go on a 5 mile hillly hike and then to a nice healthy lunch!  I’ve been pretty good at sticking to my workouts.  I am officially getting ready to start my 3rd week of Chalean Extreme.  I feel stronger and I can see some definition in my arms.  My stomach is another story!!  I guess I should stop eating so much and that would probably go away.  I tend to eat when I’m bored and it seems I have been bored a lot lately.  I need to change that!!  I’m thinking of getting rid of my trigger foods in my house.  I’ll be better off!

Today’s recipe is simple, but fun!  I love the photos of this little healthy treat!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is my blueberries and cream shooters.  It’s made with frozen blueberries, coconut milk and greek yogurt and a little squirt of whip cream to give it a dessert look.  It’s healthy, and a great way to get your family members to eat their fruit and yogurt.  My Husband took his like it was a real shot!!  Silly man!!

I served these in two tall shot glasses that I picked up from Napa Valley.  I thought the bottom of the cups (their plastic) were so pretty.  I’m a sucker for anything that is colorful and fun!  I made these smoothies just so I could use them!!

Don’t you think it’s fun to dress up something so simple as a smoothie and share it with someone you love?  Do you ever dress up your food to make it pretty?  Most of the time I try to make it pretty for you, then it doesn’t look so pretty when I put it on my plate.  lol I’m really not to graceful when it comes to my food!  I probably should be!

I would type more, but I need to go lay down.  My Husband and I had Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches and a HUGE thing of nachos from the Beach Deli for dinner and I have such a stomach ache.  I am not used to eating like that and I think my stomach is not to happy!!  Ugh!!!

Have a great Saturday!!!  Now get out there and enjoy the nice weather while you can!!

Toodles,

Jennifer

    Love you FB page and recipes. Thank you.

  2. These look really good, and really pretty! 🙂

  3. These look gorgeous! And I’m glad they’re non-alcoholic in variety for those of us teens under 21 😉

  4. I think you need to start buying stock in coconut milk–you’d make a ton!!!! And I love all the drinks you make. Especially that pumpkin frapp. Can you pleeeeeease make a hot pumpkin drink too? I’ve been waiting for Starbucks to come out with theirs, but even if you get it with non-fat milk, no whip, and decaf, I know you could do it better justice!!!

  5. totally adorable & delish looking – my idea of shooters these days 🙂

  6. Those glasses are so cute!! And the shooters look delish!
