The pressure of having to lose the extra pounds gained over the holidays always comes creeping up when visions of Summer starts floating around. It doesn't help that winter isn't even over when the stores start taking out the bathing suits & other Summer merchandise around here. For me, trying to keep the weight down isn't about trying to fit into a bikini by the Summertime. It's about being healthy for myself & for running after my little monster. With trying to maintain my weight, there's obviously a lot of sacrifices I have to make. Cutting down sweets, caffeine & anything loaded with carbs is tough. Luckily, I'm not a big fan of drinking but I do enjoy a nice frosty cocktail during the Summer so it's tough not being able to enjoy one since some are full of calories. But now it's not so tough, thanks to SlimFast.

Slim Fast

SlimFast has partnered with DR Mixologist, Darryl Robinson, host of “Drink up” on The Cooking Channel to exclusively create some delicious cocktail & mocktail recipes for the Summer. These recipes feature some of the tastiest and trendiest ingredients of the season. The SlimFast shakes are the perfect base for a deliciously creamy summer cocktails/mocktails and Darryl’s new recipes contain just 130-190 calories per serving. They all looked great but I decided to try out the Berry Sexy Vanilla Sunrise first.

I tried both of the recipes above with my husband & even he enjoyed them. I think they're both great but I actually preferred the Mocktail more. They're both delicious though & definitely refreshing! After checking out the other recipes, the Cinful Iced Latte Mocktail is what I'm trying tomorrow. Can't wait to try out the other recipes at a party before this Summer is over! I have some friends who I know will enjoy these!
