As a working mom of two, my Girls’ Nights Out are usually tied in some shape or form to a blog event. Between the office, kid activities and media events my schedule can get pretty hectic. When life starts to get a little too busy, I plan a little down time with a fun Girls’ Night In with all the essentials – a great movie, snacks and a festive drink to serve like this Lemon Raspberry Acai Smoothie.
Hosting a great Girls’ Night In is all about simple planning. I personally like to offer an assortment of regular beverages, plus I create one signature drink just for fun. My one signature drink is usually a frozen option. Don’t ask me why, but I think frozen drinks are just so much more festive. Plus I am always looking for an excuse to fire up my Margaritaville machine. It creates such a fine shave ice that blends perfectly in a variety of drinks.
For my Lemon Raspberry Acai Smoothie, I simply blend a mixture of Tropicana Trop50’s Raspberry Acai juice, frozen vanilla greek yogurt, and a sprinkle of sugar free lemonade drink mix. What results is a sweet and tangy refreshing smoothie bursting with flavor. Perfect when you want to indulge in a little sweet treat, but don’t want all the extra calories. I even made the smoothies into little mini versions using dessert cups. Seriously…aren’t they the cutest?
This Lemon Raspberry Acai Smoothie, feels indulgent but coordinates well with a variety of delicious light and healthy bites like fruit kabobs, popcorn, and a mini sandwiches. Trop50 has the great taste and goodness you expect from Tropicana, but with 50% less sugar and calories and no artificial sweeteners.
