Freezer Smoothies

It's time for my weekly check in at Getting Fit Friday!

Last week, my resolutions were:

Eat one fish meal.
Done! I made some yummy citrus fish kebabs and served them with a couscous salad. Thumbs up from the hubby too, which is always a bonus! We liked them so much I plan to cook them again next week.

Do two Zumba classes.
Once again, this didn't happen. Adam has been a teething terror and it is taking me two hours to get him into bed at night, so I am missing the classes that start at 7:30. I do have the DVDs but by the time I get out of Adam's bedroom at 9pm, I want to crawl into bed myself because he will be up again by midnight. If anyone has any teething remedies or suggestions please share!

Make up some freezer smoothies.
One of my Pinterest Resolutions was to make some Freezer smoothies for a quick snack during the week for me and my three year old son. I am glad to say I managed to do this, and will give details below.

Go shopping for a yellow skirt now that I am at goal weight.
Due to being at home all week with teething (I wasn't going to brave the mall with a screaming six month old!) I looked at my favourite online shops for a yellow skirt. However, all of the skirts I liked were either not in my size, or a mustard yellow when I am after a pastel yellow. The hunt continues!

The scales have not moved at all this week, but at least I am maintaining after a significant loss last week. I ate so much chocolate on Wednesday night (coincidentally whilst watching The Biggest Loser!) because I was stressed out from Adam's teething. So my goals this week are:

Drink water when I get a chocolate craving.
Have one vegetarian meal this week.
Prepare a snack station in the fridge and pantry for myself and Lucas.
Try to get at least six hours of sleep each night.

So, the freezer smoothies were super easy to make this week when i had ten minutes to myself. You will need:

2 bananas (not pictured because I had a mummy brain moment)
Frozen berries
2 pottles yogurt (plain or flavoured, i used blackberry)
Snaplock bags
Ice cube trays.

Spoon a tablespoon of yogurt into each of the ice cube trays and freeze for 4-6 hours until set.

Slice up your bananas.

Grab a ziplock bag and in each one put 6-8 banana slices, 2 yogurt cubes and 2 handfuls of berries.

Label them and pop in the freezer!


Blend each one from frozen in a blender with 1/2 cup milk and you have a yummy smoothie in no time! These packets serve me plus my three year old, so will do one large glass per bag.
