Creamy Beach Smoothy (Low Carb)

With baby number four on her way and being diagnosed with gestational diabetes it has forced me to radically revamp my dietary life. But it hasn't been all bad. Due to all the heat this summer I have found a real love for smoothies and love coming up with new flavors and combination of smoothies between 15 to 30 carbs a serving. This is my favorite low carb smoothy and its too good not to share. 

Creamy Beach Smoothy (Low Carb)

Serving size: 2
Carbs per serving: 17g.

1 C. Silk Coconut Milk
1 Coconut Chobani Greek Yogurt
1 C. crushed ice
3-4 splenda packets
1/2 C. no sugar added pineapple bits
1 whole lime

1. In a blender squeeze lime juice from the fresh lime. Leave out a slice for decorations if you want. You can easily add the rest of the ingredients but make sure your ice is crushed already before you put it in. Ice can be very hard on your blender.

Tip 1: I like Chobani yogurt because it is one of the few yogurts out there with almost half as much sugar as the other yogurts and its just a really nice quality yogurt. 

Tip 2: If you would like even lower carbs in your smoothy try plain yogurt instead of coconut yogurt and just add an extra packet of splenda.

Grilled Polish Sausage Burrito (Quick Family Recipe)

This was a family recipe from when I was a teenager. I would make this as a quick dinner or snack after school. Its was perfect for if you were on the run and oh so Yummy! Now I make it for my kids every once in a while, and its a big hit at our house. With just four ingredients its quick and simple to make and full of flavors!

Grilled Polish Sausage Burrito

Burrito Size Tortillas
Package of Polish Sausages
Cheddar Cheese Slices or Shredded Cheese
Honey Mustard

1. In a large frying pan grill the polish sausages first till it has nice grill/fry marks on all sides.
2. Place polish sausage and cheese slices in middle of tortilla. Add a strip of honey mustard the length of the sausage. Now you can roll it all up burrito style.
3. In the same frying pan grill the polish sausages on medium with a lid on. Grill both sides of burrito till well toasted. 

Tip: You can grill more than one of these burritos at a time, as long as they all fit in your frying pan side to side and you can put the lid on. You can also freeze these for later.
