http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2014/01/skinny-shake.html

Kick start your diet with Skinny Shakes! A tasty smoothie that will knock your socks off.  Skinny Shake is a simple recipe for a scrumptious strawberry pomegranate smoothie enjoyed once a day mid morning.  I love smoothies and the flavors here are insanely delicious.  The entire family loves it and it kick starts fat burning to boot.  Sign me up!

Just about three years ago I came across a Dr. Oz show talking about a 7-Day Crash Diet that really piqued my interest.  Dr Joel Furhman was his guest.  He discussed many ways to kick start fat burning in your body, and who doesn't want that?! One of my favorite parts of the plan was this Skinny Shake.

It has been so popular that we made a new video for you:


WAIT HERE FOR THE VIDEO TO LOAD

The skinny shake is a strawberry pomegranate smoothie once a day mid morning.  I love smoothies and the flavors here are insanely delicious.  The entire family loves it and it kick starts fat burning to boot.  Sign me up!

Needless to say this is my favorite smoothie, packed with flavor it's the perfect mid morning pick me up.  We try to balance eating healthy and little treats like this one certainly help.  A healthy breakfast and a fat burning morning snack sure make the occasional treat a lot easier on the hips.

With love from our kitchen table to yours!  XO

    1. Skip the pomegranate juice and substitute actual pomegranate kernels or blueberries. Also, you should be able to find unsweetened pomegranate juice or unsweetened cranberry juice in a local health market.

  12. I put the recipe into my go meals app because I am diabetic and for the whole recipe it looks like 324 cal., 78g carbs, 4g protein, and 0 fat. It says the recipe is 2 serving so I hope that gives you all an idea. I am going to be trying this �� Thank you for the recipe. Love to all <3

  13. I put this into my go meals. I am diabetic. 324 calories, 78g carbs, 4g protein, and 0 fat. This is for the whole recipe which is 2 servings. I hope this helps. I will be trying this and thanks for the recipe. (Strawberry and pomegranate)

  14. Appears there is 456 calories in this recipe. Doesn't seem that skinny...Seems tasty though!

  15. Well I had my husband go out and buy the ingredients to make this smoothie and I am not sure it is for diabetics. So for the full recipe with the ingredients I got it is 500 calories, 138g carbs, 0 fat, and 3g protein. Now she did say that the recipe was two servings so it would break down to 250 calories, 69g carbs, 0 fat and 1.5 protein. Still for diabetics (at least for me) I am restricted to 45g of carbs. I guess if you are just watching your calorie intake and not your carbs this doesn't seem bad at all. I just know I will have to reduce my quantity even more to be able to drink it, but I am still going to give it a try. Love to all and I hope this helps. xoxo ~A

  16. What does our body do with fructose? Hint: it does not include burning fat.

  17. I used the strawberries and added some Greek yoghurt to thicken because I used coconut water instead of the juice.

  18. I looked this recipe up on the Dr. Oz site and this is not the original recipe. The original recipe is:
    1 cup ice
    4 oz pomegranate juice
    1 cup frozen strawberries
    Squeeze of lemon
