Skinny Shake

Detox with Skinny Shakes!  A tasty smoothie that will knock your socks off.

Just about a year 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 the Skinny Shake.

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
