People are always asking me about store bought smoothies, and honestly I have never been a big fan of them. My complaints range from too runny, flavorless, sugary or chalky.
However, I recently tried LightFull Satiety Smoothies and I was pleasantly surprised. These new smoothies are part of the growing trend in satiety foods - foods made to keep you feeling full. I will say that I did feel rather satisfied after one box, which I really didn't think would happen. I especially liked Chocolate Fudge and Café Latte, but I am partial to chocolaty things. The easy (and fun, might I add) juice box style really got me excited too, but you know how I love drinks in a box. At 90-100 calories per box, you're not busting your calorie count on a drink, but you're also feeling like you're getting a treat. I'd recommend keeping a LightFull smoothie around for those times after dinner, when you're still hungry but don't want to blow your diet on cookies, cake and spoonfuls of peanut butter (everyone's done it, don't lie). I'd also recommend drinking it cold, or even ice cold, as I drank one at room temp and it was not nearly as pleasant.
I can't help but laugh at the brands tag line: Fiber is sexy, because I have honestly never thought of fiber as, well, sexy but it's definitely sticking in my head. Look for them at your local grocery store or buy a 12-pack ($25.00) from Amazon.com. Go here to download a coupon for $1.00 off. Enjoy!
