Bananas, Grapes and Strawberries Smoothie

It’s been one month and one week since I started this diet thing. Lucky me, I’ve shed some pounds. The first week was great as I lost 4.5 pounds. The second and third week was the very upsetting times as I have not lost any. On the fourth week, I decided to cut the rice on my diet. I was actually taking a cup of rice in a day, so I guessed that will not have too much effect on my diet. But when I saw that I have not lost any pound in two weeks, I finally decided to remove it from my system. I was taking a cup of rice in a day, but now, only on weekends – still one cup and no cheat day. And I am having at least two liters of water per day.

The morning smoothie is still on-going and I am having oatmeal for breakfast, too… or sometimes, at dinner time when I am lazy to make one in the morning. I have tried the overnight oats but I think something went wrong, so I did not stick to that.

Among the smoothies I have tried, I can say that the combination of Bananas, Grapes and Strawberries is my top favorite. I can finish a glass or two. 😀

Bananas, Grapes and Strawberries Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 2 large ripe Bananas
  • 1 cup fresh Grapes*
  • 1 cup fresh Strawberries (stems removed and sliced into two)
  • Ice cubes
  • 1/3 cup skimmed milk/almond milk/soy milk

Instructions:

Put everything in a blender and blend well. Transfer to a glass and drink immediately. This will serve up to three people, depending on how much you can consume.

Notes:

  1. *Seeds can be removed if desired. As for my smoothie, I’d love to include the seeds.
  2. In this smoothie, you can also add yogurt. I just enjoy mine with the above ingredients.

This diet thing will go on until the scale could put a smile on my face or until I give up. Well, hopefully, I can still manage until a few months. For one month and 1 week, I lost 6.6 pounds… it’s not that bad. 🙂 

I hope you try this smoothie and let me know what you think. Hope everyone is having a great day!

    1. Thank you, Gab. That’s what I am thinking when I don’t get any good news from the scale. Honestly, I don’t miss the habit of over-eating. I guess I am doing really good. 😀 I just saw the idea of the grapes in smoothies from one of my Instagram friends. I am having this smoothie almost everyday. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by, Gab. Have a fabulous day and say hi to Norman. 😀

    1. Haha! Thank you, Fae! I am struggling a lot. There are times that I don’t have anything on my stomach but a glass of smoothie and a bowl of oatmeal a day, oh and about two liters of water… But I have to remind myself that I am not trying to die… Haha! So I force myself to go to the kitchen to make a healthy salad. You can do it, Fae! xx

    1. It’s funny how we eat more and then feel guilty about it. Later on, you have to struggle (a lot) to go back to your normal weight. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Have a fabulous day! 😉

    1. Thank you, Dimple. I am really struggling and there comes a point that I really don’t want to eat… like today. All I had was a glass of smoothie (the same smoothie) and nothing else. Maybe I’ll try to eat later. Have a lovely day! 😉

      1. Hello, I’m with yah. I started my blog to keep myself motivated and to see if anyone wants to join me with my womanly struggles! I enjoy the strawberry smoothies as well.

Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts...
