I am happy to report that a) I am down 2 pants/skirts sizes as of yesterday. I had a sudden BURST of energy yesterday and switched out all of the winter clothes with my spring clothes... and I also decided to try on everything that did not fit last summer, or I've been holding on to in the hopes of fitting into again someday. I tried on a skirt that I bought in college that hasn't fit me for a long time, and sure enough... it fit. I was and am pretty dang excited. All of my shorts and capris that didn't fit last summer, now fit too. It was a really, really good feeling. I'm also happy to report that b) It's opening day for the Detroit Tigers (go Tigers!) and c) It's Pinspired Friday!
It all started when I ran across this pin:
|From WhoSay.com - http://www.whosay.com/joybauer/photos/233971|
• 1 Green tea teabag, to be steeped in 6 oz. of water
• 1/2 cup of nonfat/fat free vanilla yogurt
• 1 cup of frozen mango chunks, unsweetened
• Not pictured - 7 ice cubes
• Not pictured - 1 packet of splenda
You'll also want:
• a blender
• a Pyrex or similar measuring cup to get the water boiling/hot
First, measure out 6 oz. of water in your measuring cup, and microwave it for about 3 minutes or until hot/near boiling. Stick your green tea bag in there after the water is ready.
We want the water to become quite saturated with the green tea, so let it sit for about 5 minutes.
As the tea is steeping, measure out your one cup of frozen mango:
Add the mango the blender, add your 1/2 cup of nonfat vanilla yogurt, add the green tea, add the packet of splenda and the ice cubes.
|Add your blender top before blending, obviously... haha|
And enjoy! This recipe makes one glass full (these glasses are full size, I believe in the 14-16 oz range). The color is gorgeous, almost like an orange juice color but more yellow, and the taste is great! I was unsure if I was going to care for it as I usually don't care for green tea (I prefer black tea or even better, white tea) but the combination of the exotic taste of mango and the green tea work together really well. The original pin I got this front said the glass had 190 calories... not bad for breakfast! :) Thanks for following along!
I'm linking up to these parties!
