Tasty Thursday- Almond Joy Smoothie

Today is Tasty Thursday hosted by Trista over at The Pumkin Patch. Her new banner made me want to post a summer recipe. It has been so hot here in Kentucky already. It was 96 when I went out yesterday. Trying to eat healthier makes it harder to pick a cool refreshing snack or dessert, so I tried out some new smoothies. This is one I LOVE! It taste just like an Almond Joy candy bar, well almost! lol! Anyone can go to a Weight Watchers meeting and buy smoothies unless the site is a privately owned. I like to use the Weight Watchers smoothies because they are loaded with dairy and when added with fat free milk, you can count the drink as your 2 dairy servings. Getting those servings of dairy is part of the Weight Watchers program. I am also going to give you a recipe that you can make it without using the Weight Watcher smoothie mix. At my site, for the next couple of weeks the smoothie boxes are on sale for $5.00 they are usually $7.50 a box and the box has 7 packets in it. I hope you enjoy this cool treat! Have a great week.

Almond Joy Smoothie
1 Weight Watchers Chocolate Smoothie Mix
1 cup fat free milk
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp coconut extract
8 ice cubes
Mix all of the ingredients in the blender and enjoy!
Made this way it is 3 Weight Watchers points and 2 dairy servings.

Almond Joy Smoothie #2
1 c. ff milk
1/2 small pkg. ff sf choc. pudding mix
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
8 ice cubes
Mix all of the ingredients in a blender and enjoy!
(I have not made this particular smoothie with the sugar free fat free pudding, but I have had other smoothies with it and they are wonderful!)
Also 3 Weight Watchers Points but only 1 dairy serving.
