Mmmm Mmmmm Good!

orange julius (2)

Ever need a healthy pick-me-up on a long, demanding afternoon? I LOVED this. It was similar to an Orange Julius, but low in calories (205) and no added sugar. It also gave me strengthening protein and carried me until we had a late supper that night.

Some almond milk is only 30 calories a cup. This one is 40, but the recipe is based on a 30 calorie intake.

I believe in my BEfull shakes. They are designed by Life Force International to aid weight loss and lean muscle development and have blend of proprietary protein, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Additions like this one make them fun. I got this idea from my friend Dani.

Here’s what I used to make my afternoon pick-me-up:

4 oz orange juice

6 oz almond milk

2 Scoops BEfull (vanilla flavor)

For taste, you can play with the amounts of milk and orange juice. I used less orange juice than you might prefer in an effort to keep the calories down.

Besides supporting healthy and weight loss, I see this shake as one of those simple things that makes life better!

Enjoy!

    I’ve been ha ing a lot of smoothies now the weather is warm, lots of skimmed milk a d frozen fruit. It’s amazing how much something like that fills you up and satisfies you and all that calcium a d protein must be good for my old bones and muscles. 🙂

    Absolutely! I noticed you’ve added ice cubes to your shopping list to keep those smoothies coming! :O) I do mine without ice. Not sure why . . .
