As some of you know, prior to this year I’ve never worked out in a gym. As I spend many late nights working on the blog and sometimes get really tired during the day, Mr. JOC encouraged me to hire a personal trainer to get my body back in shape. I would have totally resisted in the prior years but since I am getting older and want to stay healthy, I listened and started working out. Guess what, I love it! I feel like I have more energy and my body feels lighter and stronger.
After my workout, the first thing I do when I get home is to make a smoothie. For the liquid for the smoothies, I use Silk’s almond milk, coconut milk, and soy milk and they all taste delicious.
When I went grocery shopping the other day to stock up, I brought my daughter with me and in the milk section, she saw Silk’s chocolate soy milk and her eyes lit up. She begged me to buy it for her and I couldn’t resist. My children are a bit lactose intolerant so I know by buying soy milk, they’ll be fine consuming it without having trouble.
A few days ago when I came home from my workout and was getting ready for my smoothie routine, I opened my fridge and realized that the only liquid I had was the chocolate soy milk. I read the nutrition and it seems to be a good source of calcium and protein without containing too many calories.
So I decided to treat myself to a chocolate banana smoothie. Oh my, it was delicious! Taste of smooth chocolate with just a hint of banana. When my children came home from school that day I made it for them and added whipped cream and a bit of sprinkle on top. The delight on their face was priceless!
In addition to my regular Silk drinks, I’ll be adding chocolate soy milk to the mix as a treat!
