Off the Wagon/On the Wagon

I have another confession
I've fallen off the wagon.
It happens.
However, I don't like the view of the wagon from down here.
I find myself grabbing the long, oversized sweaters,
avoiding the cute new leggings I bought a month ago
and the worst part,
 not returning the call of my sweet WWLeader.
I'm back on! 
You might see some decadent recipes pop up
around here because sometimes,
I just have to do it.
But I am committed that the next 10 recipes I post
will have TuesdayMorning points attached
or I won't post the recipe.
That's a good challenge going into the holidays.
That way,
I will have to eat at least 10 healthy, figure flattering 
recipes myself and that is very important for
establishing good habits.
So here we go.
I ran out of my favorite protein powder and haven't reordered yet,
oh you know I will,
but I've also been lazy about running lately,
so I'm ok without the extra protein for a bit.
It dawned on me in a moment of brilliance
that I made smoothies all the time before I discovered
the AMAZING protein powder I've featured on this blog.

So here is what I used:
1 C Almond Milk (it has protein)
1/4 - 1/2  C of frozen Blueberries
1/4- 1/2 frozen Pineapple
1 Banana
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 TBSP Coconut Oil
pinch of Celtic Sea Salt
 Yield: 3 8oz cups

I would estimate that the point value would be about 4-5pt.
If you omit the coconut oil, probably 2pts.
So good!
Cool, fresh, healthy, sweet, and delicious.
Let's clink our smoothy glasses to climbing back up on the wagon!
