LightFull Satiety Smoothies

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!

Almost forgot - Spoonful of almond butter is my mainstay. Not quite as much protein as peanut butter but 6 times the calcium, double the iron, and more vitamin E. Mmmmmmm...

I actually tasted one of these and they are quite good but I don't do milk. It would be nice if these were organic or made with organic dairy at least.

That's awesome about the fiber, but I think I'll stick to making my own smoothies!

You can get these at Safeway in the dairy department next to the organic and soy products.

Peanut butter on a spoon cuts out the middle man. Less calories than eating crackers along with it. Ok, I'll go chop some celery sticks now.

I'm so glad that I'm not the only person who eats peanut butter on a spoon. And I guess fiber IS sexy, when you think about the benefits of it.

Wow. I had no idea that other people eat spoon-fulls of peanut butter! I feel so... normal now. Now what's my eccentric eating habit going to be???

mmm...Better N' Peanut Butter...mmmm I also love smoothies but they usually look to sugar soaked. These sound great! I especially like that they're full of fiber.

Mmm I just had some pb this morning...on a wrap of course (ran out of jam), but of course I had to lick the knife! Drinks in a box do intrigue me!

Sigh. I succumbed to the 'spoonful of peanut butter' last night!
