Raspberry Lime Smoothie Recipe

السلام عليكم

Smoothies are an excellent way to replenish your body after a work out. I love making tropical flavored or raspberry flavored smoothies for after an intense work out session.

The following is my favorite recipe for a raspberry lime smoothie:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 lime : juiced
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 cup limeade
  • 1-2 tablespoons of honey
  • ice (usually about 3 cups, but start with less and add more if necessary)

*Note: I use Chobani vanilla flavored yogurt, but raspberry or key lime pie flavored is nice too. And use your judgement on the ice. It’s best to start with a small amount and add more to get the thickness that you like in your smoothie. Everyone likes it differently. I have a big blender, so I can fit a lot of cubes in it. I usually use more than 3 cups with this one.

To make your smoothie, simply combine the ingredients and blend. Voila! If your smoothie is too sour for your liking, add more honey.

Enjoy!

January 9 : National Take the Stairs Day

السلام عليكم

Today is National Take the Stairs Day! My challenge for you today is to not only take the stairs instead of the elevator/escalator, but also to go out of your way to either climb an extra flight, or get on the stair stepper at the gym at the end of your work out!

Have you noticed how the iPhone Health app has a calculator for the flights of stairs that you’ve climbed? There are free apps available for Android as well, and sports tracking watches such as the FitBit for tracking the flights of stairs climbed as well. I’m going to set a goal for myself today, and try to meet it every day. Join me!

Climbing stairs is a great way to work on your quads, calves, and glutes, and to get in some cardio to burn some of that fat. Let’s do this!
