With weight-loss goals and “cleaner” eating being the trend for January (thank God for the February drop off) I decided the junk in my trunk needed to ride the horse and drop some l-bs. Or maybe ride a pony. Definitely a mini pony. There is no way my holiday legs are lifting higher than an inch or two off the ground. Gravity seems to be a little more weighing than usual this time of year…. =X

But lets also not go totally off the grid and eat air here. I’m still recovering from my pregnancy diet that is hitting two years now so the chance of me completely avoiding carbs is pretty much setting myself up for failure.

I’ve learned that if I set really small, I’m talking like, teency weency size goals, they actually 25 percent of the time, are accomplished every time. SO basically what I’m trying to say is, if I try and lose one pound this month, it could almost very well happen. One pound? Like seriously Julia? I can lose that in a day. Well, first off, I’m like the least hard core person you will ever meet. And I’m literally the polar opposite of a “Type A” personality meaning, 99 percent of the time shit just hits the fan. So by setting goals that are definitely more in reach (and can possibly be OVER achieved) I think I’m basically looking at a win-win. Unless someone decides to drop off a pint or ten of Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream, then I’m totally screwed (DM me if you want my address to do just that, I like Chubby Hubby).

Recipe Notes:
Hmm. There isn’t much for this one. You can pour it in a cup. Because it’s actually just a lassi/smoothie, therefore a drinkable meal. But, I think a lassi smoothie bowl sounds more interesting, and the act of actually scooping something in my mouth makes me more full than sipping it through a straw. 
Also if you haven’t had a lassi (basically yogurt > fruit mixture), you should probably go to the nearest Indian restaurant and order one. GAH they are so good. Not a recipe note, but I didn’t know where else to fit that little reco. in.

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1 ripe banana, sliced
  • 1 star fruit, sliced
  • 1 cup pineapple, cubed
  • 1 yellow pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups plain non-fat greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • Optional Toppings:
  • Honey
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Granola (Not pictured)
  1. In a blender add all of the ingredients except for optional toppings. Blend until smooth.
  2. Divide into four bowls and serve with ANY topping you choose (I love extra honey and yogurt).
*** I used Chobani non-fat greek yogurt for this recipe because I love the texture and tang that their plan yogurt has to offer. However any that you have on hand will do just fine.
