Pina Colada Protein Smoothie

May 20, 2014

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Slimfast, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #14daystoslim  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

After spending a week in Mexico eating and drinking to my heart's content, I was in major need of a detox. Last week I did a 5-day juice cleanse with some co-workers (the team that juices together, stays together!) and I also wanted to do my usual workouts while on the cleanse, so I added in a protein smoothie once a day. Slimfast has a new, limited addition flavor that also happens to be my favorite alcoholic beverage—pina colada! Here's what I whipped up for my daily shake:

1 bottle Slimfast pina colada
1 cup almond milk
1 cup ice
1 cup chopped mango
1 tablespoon whey (or any preferred) protein powder

I'm feeling lighter and brighter after my cleanse, and I'm thinking I'll continue mixing in Slimfast shakes with my regular diet as I get ready for summer (and for some of the skimpier dresses I have in the back of my closet that rarely make an appearance due to SF's usually foggy weather). By the way, a recent Slimfast survey reveals the prevalence of “Locked Closet Syndrome”—a.k.a the practice of “locking away” clothes that don’t currently fit. They found that 90% of women keep items that don’t currently fit in their closet—14 items on average. I'm definitely a part of that 90%! If you are too, you'll be happy to know that Slimfast is also doing a 14 Days to Slim Challenge Sweepstakes on their Facebook page til May 27th, where two winners will receive  a $5,000 Visa gift card! Besides that lovely incentive, their 14 Days to Slim program is an easy and delicious way to lose up to six pounds in the first 2 weeks. Curious about how the program works? Here's the breakdown:
  • Swap 2 meals daily with a Slimfast protein shake or meal bar.
  • Your third meal must be 500 calories. And if you’re stumped on what to prepare try these recipes!
  • Enjoy three 100-calorie snacks or pieces of fruit per day.
  • Don’t exceed 1200 calories per day.
  • Do 30 minutes of light exercise daily and drink lots of water.

Happy almost summer!
