Have you ever had an Orange Julius?

You know the citrusy, icy concoctions that you find at the mall?

They are good and refreshing, but did you know that a medium has 290 calories and 80 grams of sugar? (As in over FIVE tablespoons)Um, yep.

And I have always said, “Don’t drink your calories!”

So not worth it when you can save them up for some awesome pizza instead?

 Of course!

So try my Grapefruit Julius…Your waistline will thank me ;)!

Speaking of pizza, however, my employees were in town  last week and we had a great lunch at my favorite pizza restaurant, followed with some awesome brainstorming and serious getting down to business.

I love the power of strong, intelligent women and I am lucky to work with a handful of some extra super ones.

‘Hope you are also surrounded by some fantastic women in your life!



Here’s What You Need:
1 Can Grapefruit Zevia*
1 cup ice
1 cup Adonia Vanilla Greek Yogurt*

Here’s What You Do:
Blend ingredients and sip with straw in the sunshine!
*Both websites give store locations. I found Adonia at my local grocery store and Target and Zevia at the local organic grocery. Both worth every penny!

Kid Tip:
I don’t subscribe to giving kids soda because of all the c.r.a.p. in it, but I can make an exception for all natural Zevia on a special occassion!
