Skinny Recipe: Tropical Milk Shake

The weather is only getting getting hotter and so the drinks in my house are only getting colder. This is my go-to recipe when I need a vacation, but can’t get away for more than a few minutes. It’s fast and easy so I can hit the tropics in no time and daydream about sand and sun until it’s a reality!

Quick Tip: Eat More Fish

Fish—especially “oily” kinds, such as salmon—are rich in the omega-3 fatty acids that, studies suggest, protect the heart. For men and women who won’t become pregnant, the benefits of eating fish frequently far outweigh any risks associated with mercury.

Note: The Food and Drug Administration and Environmental Protection Agency advise pregnant and nursing mothers and women who may become pregnant to avoid certain types of seafood and limit others, as most fish contain mercury, which may be harmful to developing fetuses and young children whose nervous systems are still developing.
