In an effort to jumpstart my summer fitness, I came up with the idea to start making smoothies for breakfast. I stocked up on my favorite unsweetened berries and almond milk and got to blending. I hit snooze one too many times and my smoothie concoctions dwindled. :-\
Now that my trip to Mexico is in a month, Operation Smoothies is back in full effect! This time around, my smoothies will get a little boost from Bai5. According to drinkbai.com,
Each bottle of Bai5 offers fresh fruit flavor infused with coffeefruit, our antioxidant-rich “secret superfruit.” Sweetened with organic stevia, Bai5 is the all-natural, five-calorie way to bring healthy, bold flavor into your life.
Each 8oz serving of Bai5 contains only 5 calories and 1 gram of sugar. From Malawi Mango to Sumatra Dragonfruit, Bai5 comes in an assortment of tropical flavors that perfectly complement your homemade smoothies.
