Skinny Summer Smoothie

We are ice cream lovers in our house.  Ice cream...milkshake...rootbeer float....any version will do!  In order to stay on the weight loss bandwagon and to incorporate more fruit into my diet I've come up with these "shakes" as an alternative.  Smoothie would be a better word I suppose.  I still have my ice cream treat now and then but I can have one of these each day for breakfast.  They are filling and great for you!

I meant to take a picture when my glass was full but it was just so yummy I forgot!

Breakfast (or really any meal) Smoothies

1 small/medium banana
5-8 strawberries (depending on size)
3/4 cup prepared Crystal Light (we use Sunrise Tangerine Strawberry aka "The Good Stuff")
8 ice cubes

Put every thing in the blender and pulse!  You can make it as thick or thin as you'd like by adding more or less Crystal Light.  Traditionally I make these with orange juice but I was trying to make a 0 points breakfast and this works!  You can really use any type of berries you'd like in this and can switch up the kind of drink mix as well.

Mmmmm....I must try this as there have been too many fattening but tasty looking treats running through my kitchen lately!

I am definitely going to try this! I love smoothies for breakfast and I never would have thought to use crystal light! Thanks for sharing at Saturday Social!
