It's starting to get a little warmer here in West Texas. Even though it's like 50 degrees as I'm typing, it's supposed to reach 85 degrees by this afternoon. It's still really cool at night and in the mornings, but the afternoons are nice, if the wind's not blowing. I think that's called Spring, y'all.
Since it's been warmer, I've been craving milk shakes. Particularly one from here. Because they are really, really good.
But, alas, milk shakes are not practical for my little weight loss venture. So I started searching the Weight Watchers sight for smoothie recipes. I found one named Chocolate Covered Strawberries. It sounded wonderful, but when I went shopping for the ingredients, I could only find two of them: ice and strawberries. Oh, and milk. So I improvised. And here is what I came up with.
Jenni's Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie
1 serving; 2.5 pts per serving
Pour it in a large glass. I chilled mine in the freezer for about 10 minutes because that's how they do it at the old fashioned ice cream parlors. The recipe makes about 14 oz. which was the perfect size for my breakfast this morning.
