Smoothies!

16 Jan

So, Yoga, exercise and healthy eating are fun, but I’ve been drowning myself with pearl shakes, pearl teas, milk teas, pearl milk teas from various establishments, I can’t help myself, it’s like every time i pass the stores the large plastic tumblers are calling me and in a trance, i go to them and buy the biggest, sweetest one with additional pearls! as if fraps and cappuccinos aren’t enough. sigh. so this year I’m (not ditching them but..) opting for a healthier alternative! planning on replacing the blender and juicer with a more easy-to-use version so i can make these smoothie recipes whenever i want/need and not worry about cleaning up!!

I’m sharing these recipes I found on http://www.fitnessmagazine.com, seriously, healthy drinks are a must but it’s healthier if we make them instead of buying overpriced ones.
