Keep scrolling for the most delicious coconut strawberry smoothie recipe!
Just mention the word summer and loads of women have the thought of trying on swimsuits and strutting their stuff in shorts, tanks and little dresses. In my mind, I always think smoothies! Strawberry smoothies to be exact!
I’ve had several of you ask me about how I lost the baby weight after I had Finn. I’ve shared a ton about how I’ve relied heavily on FASTer Way to Fat Loss, a good fitness routine and a solid meal plan in order to get back to feeling like my best self!
I wholeheartedly believe that “being skinny” is not and should not be the goal. Sure feeling good on the outside is important and it’s nice to look good and feel good, but… it’s also about lifestyle, mindset, eating right, and taking care of your body, body image and being fueled well enough to keep up with that sweet baby.
I’ve had to figure out what works for me in this new life phase in order to continue planning and eating in a healthy manner. When I worked in an office, I used to pack my lunch each day and/or we’d cook together in our kitchen and everyone around me was doing Whole30 or Paleo so it held me accountable. Now that I’m going back and forth between work and Burn Bootcamp, school drop offs & pick ups and more, meals can get a little hectic.
The temptation is more real than ever to grab something on the go at or snack on what the boys are snacking on. You might not think so, but those little calories here and there can add up! I find that with a little extra, intentional planning I don’t feel the need to snack on things that aren’t great choices. Added protein really helps with that too! When I have meals with added protein, I am fuller for longer so I’m not feeling hungry on the fly.

Below, I’m dishing all the details on the yummiest strawberry smoothie. It is healthy and delicious and a great choice for a quick something on the go!
