Five on Friday: Week Seven

Happy Friday!
Sorry I missed last week but I am back in the game this week! 
Enjoy your weekend!

I want to try to start eating healthier and am interested in substituting some snacks or even like breakfast or lunch with a smoothie. Have you tried any smoothie recipes lately that you love?!? Any suggestions or recommendations on making them ahead of time and "storing" them? Do you use just a regular glass or do you have some type of cup, especially for on the go, that you use?
 Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!! :)


I know I am a little late to jump on the frozen yogurt band wagon but I have lately fell in LOVE with fro-yo. There is a place really close to our house that I tried a couple of different times and did not see what all the fuss was about.  But, I have found another local place just a little bit further and it is so YUMMY!
Is it bad that I want to substitute some of my meals and just eat frozen yogurt now?!?

I recently tried these crackers and they are so good! They come in a variety of flavors but my favorite is the Cinnamon & Brown Sugar one, it tastes like a big teddy graham!
It is a great alternative to my pop-tarts that I normally turned to! ;)

For those of you who, like myself, have been in a gloomy, wintry state for the past 3-4 months... how great was it have some sunshine and near 60 degree weather recently!?!?!
Wednesday I even raked my lawn in a long sleeve shirt and jeans, it felt amazing to say the least!
Now, if only it would show up and stay that way!!

  1. THAT top!!! And those shoes! Love!! Perfect for spring :)

    1. Thank you so much! I can't wait for pastels and florals and short sleeve shirts and shorts and CUTE little summer dresses! :)

  2. That fro-yo! Yum! And I love those shoes!!!

    1. I just had some more fro-yo tonight... just SO good!!

  3. I just made smoothies this this week for breakfast. I used frozen mixed berries, fat free vanilla yogurt and almond milk. Very delicious! I have the recipe scheduled to be posted soon for our recipe swap linkup.

    1. I can't wait for your recipe! I will be watching for it!

  4. I love making smoothies! If you have a high powered blender, add in 1-2 cups of spinach and you’ll sneak in extra veggies. I swear it tastes better than it looks!

    1. I haven't braved adding greens yet but I will try soon, everyone says it tastes almost no different that without!

  5. I love making smoothies (can't wait for warmer weather so I can sit outside and sip on them). My go to is 1 banana, 5-7 strawberries, handful of blueberries, handful of spinach, some almond milk (probably about a quarter cup) and sometimes I add a little vanilla protein powder. I used frozen strawberries and blueberries, because then I don't have to add ice, and I can store the frozen fruit a lot longer than fresh. I usually do all three fruits, but any combo of the two is yummy, and you can't even taste the spinach, but you're still getting the nutrients from it. I usually just pour mine in to a big glass and add a straw at home, but using some kind of tumbler would be great on the go.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation on the recipe Ericka! Will have to try. I definitely think that using the frozen fruit is a great idea!!
