Strawberry Limeade Smoothie and Feb Cookbook Wrap-up

Well February has just about come and gone, and with it my plans to review eight recipes from The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook. I didn’t quite make all of them this go-around, but I gave it a good shot! Hopefully we’ll do a bit better next go around. The good news is that I did enjoy most of the recipes we made and I would like to try the few that we missed and maybe some more.

  1. Grilled Chicken Parmesan – very good!
  2. Szechuan Beef and Broccoli – very good!
  3. BBQ Bacon Meatloaf – didn’t get to this one, but it’s staying on my list
  4. Edamummus (dip made from edamame) – the ingredients are in my posession, but I ran out of time!
  5. Tuna/Hummus English Muffins – never made it, but I hope to soon
  6. Strawberry-Limeade Smoothie – AWESOME! see below
  7. Broccoli and Cheddar Mini Frittatas – pretty good
  8. Buffalo Chicken-Blue Cheese Meatloaf – very good!

Next month, I’m going through Moosewood Restaurant’s Simple Suppers and I’m super excited since I love Moosewood Cookbooks and I’m pretty confident this one will be a big big winner. I’ll have a post about that early next week.

Strawberry Limeade Smoothie

  • 1 C milk
  • 6 oz key lime yogurt
  • 1 C frozen strawberries
  • zest and juice of one lime
  • sweetener to taste


This is very easy to make as it’s a smoothie … you put everything in the blender and hit it hard. Those strawberries are a bear to get all chopped up nice, especially if your blender is as old as ours is. Add some sweetener if you need it … we didn’t think it needed it. Very refreshing and just a little bit different. One of these split nicely between two of us and made a very good “healthy” dessert or maybe breakfast?

Hope you enjoy!
