I Made What I Pinned: 7UP Smoothie

Yep, you read that right, it happened.  I actually made something that I pinned.  And I have a few more up my sleeve that I'll be making and forcing my family to try (eat) in the next couple of days.  The ingredients have already been bought.

I pinned this drink recipe when I read in the description that it's ZERO points with Weight Watchers.  Boom.  It was pinned.

And then, guess what?  I made it.  I finally had all of the ingredients I needed.  I'd been dying to try it out.

Annnd.....it was DE-lish!  It tasted just like a strawberry-banana smoothie except it was carbonated with a little kick of lime in it.  The best part, besides being able to drink it all day long because it is zero points, was that it tasted good without having to add any sugary-somethin' (like yogurt).

All you need is:
--> A blender (I used my bullet because it's easier to clean and works like a charm. why when I say bullet does it take my mind to the gutter?  I've been to waaaay too many "parties." 2 too many.)
--> ice
--> diet 7UP (you can use regular 7UP but it won't be zero points)
--> strawberries
--> banana
Since I had my bullet out, I went ahead and threw in some kale, carrots, flaxseed mill, strawberries, half a banana, celery and a few chunks of fresh pineapple and made B a smoothie too.  He hadn't had one in a couple of weeks so it was a nice treat for him.  And it's so freakin' adorable when he asks for more by saying, "Mas, mooty!"  Yes, the kid still insists on saying "more" in Spanish.  And I love it.  Except when he goes to church and says it to the ladies teaching him and they don't understand him.  Ha.  You win some, you lose some. :)
I made the mistake of letting Bos drink his on the couch while laying near my pillow. #littlegreenmustache
