Shakeology Mojito

Fridays are my favorite days, but one of the reasons is because its HEALTHY RECIPE FRIDAY!!!


Today the spotlight goes back onto Shakeology, my go to shake and the only thing I trust to put into my body, and turning a health shake into a Mojito! (yeeaaaaya!)

Who doesn't love mojitos? They are summery, fresh, minty, cold, and refreshing.  The only thing that sucks about them is typically they are high in calories (even "lite" mojitos are near 400 calories!) And those are empty calories. Those aren't nutrients, whole foods, vitamins, minerals..its mostly the alcohol and whatever syrupy mixer the bar may choose to use.

But this little gem only packs 166 calories, 15 grams of protein, 22 carbs and only 1 gram of fat (and its healthy fats!).  Want to "kick it up a notch", add in some white rum for a kick. Will this increase these numbers? Yes, but it's still better for you than what you would get at a bar (and probably cheaper!)

Super easy, and delicious!

1 packet Strawberry Shakeology
1 TBS fresh lime
2 TBS chopped mint leaves
