My sugar-free exsistence, which you can read about here and here, lasted exactly two weeks. I fell off the wagon on Memorial Day, when I just couldn't resist strawberry pretzel salad and Gramma's carrot cake.
I'm still participating in the body after baby challenge and I'm happy to report that I'm down 8 lbs. total - just 7 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight. Very exciting. This week I'm just controlling my portion sizes and limiting my sugar.
One of the yummiest treats that I had while on my sugar fast was a homemade strawberry-banana smoothie. I like to freeze my over-ripe bananas, so it's super sweet and totally (refined) sugar free!
3 medium bananas - cut and frozen
1/3 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 to 1 cup milk
1 cup - ice cubes
Blend everything together in your blender. This makes a super thick shake, so you may need to add more milk (or yogurt, if you want a more breakfasty smoothie) to help the blender with all the frozen ingredients.
