Wake up and drink either of these delicious and nutritious smoothies 3 x a week to lose weight & feel great!
Drink one of these delicious nutrient-dense smoothies just 3 x a week as a replacement of one meal, like I do as a breakfast or lunch, heck even dinner. My favorite Blender is my Nutri Ninja Pro Personal Blender with 900 Watt Base and Vitamin and Nutrient Extraction for Shakes and Smoothies with 18 and 24-Ounce Cups (BL456)
I have been using this super smoothie blender for 3 years now and it is still performing like a rockstar! It gives your tummy a break from digestion with a shot of vitamins and nutrients and may help you lose some weight.
It helped me lose eleven pounds and I feel so good on my smoothie juicing days. If you are finding this blog outside of my YouTube channel you can download my 90-day health challenge for women over 50 here.
