Mint Almondmilk Slushie

I know I can't be the only one that gets this feeling.... The feeling where you've just eaten and physically you're full but for some reason there is something in you telling you that you're starving. That weird hungry feeling where your brain knows you're NOT hungry but there's that darn feeling in your stomach. Anyone?

Well, I had this feeling the other day for the first time in a while, and just had to do something about it. However, I'm trying to be strict with sticking to my calories and macros so I didn't want to just eat something because it would have thrown me off for the day, so instead I made this. Not only did it totally make that hungry feeling go away, it satisfied my sweet tooth too! Best part? It's only 30 calories and 4 ingredients!



Ingredients
- 1 cup Almondmilk - I love Silk but any unsweetened will work.
- 1 drop mint extract (be very careful here, only 1 tiny drop!)
- 1packet of Truvia (2 if you have a really big sweet tooth)
- 6-7 ice cubes



Directions
1. Place ingredients in blender and blend!

PS sorry for the horrible lighting on the photos, the sun goes down so darn early and I tried all week to get a good shot of these and it just didn't happen. Oh well, at least it still tastes the same :)

  4. This was great! I added 1 tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder. I had that sweet craving after eating a hearty dinner (your chunky beef stew) and it completely satisfied my sweet tooth!
