Weight Watcher White Chocolate Peppermint Smoothies

Sometimes there are just some products out there that help you maintain the Weight Watcher® program that are simply created by Weight Watcher's® and only available through them but so worth the trip to the meeting places in order to pick them up. I personally think that Weight Watcher's® Smoothie Mixes are one of these items. Of course, everyone has their favorites or their ones they absolutely cannot stand. There are very few I honestly dislike, but definitely some that I absolutely LOVE.

One of my absolute faves is the plain ol' chocolate smoothie mix. I mix mine with water for a 1 point treat and probably a good 75% of the time I'll add some "goodies" to the smoothie to create an almost "Blizzard® Like" dessert!
Some different items I love to add to a chocolate WW smoothie:
  • Peanut Butter for a chocolate peanut butter drink (you can use PB2 in place of actual lower fat peanut butter for less points® )
  • 100 calorie packs (generally you can add 1/2 pack adding only 1 extra point®) - some of my faves of these include the Oreo® packs & the Chips Ahoy® packs but the choices are almost endless!
  • 1 pt or 2 pt bars - in particular I love to add the Weight Watchers® chocolate chip brownies, all chopped up and just dropped into the mixture....makes for an amazing chocolately treat!
  • 1/2 Skinny Cow® ice cream sandwich - actually I will often use the Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches to "dip" my smoothie

ne of the newer flavors of the Weight Watchers
® Smoothies I've found is the White Chocolate Peppermint Smoothie. This is often a wonderful, creamy treat that I whip up with a Skinny Cow® to dip into it. I use the "water" method, preferring the texture of using water and ice (use ice & water to equal 1 cup in the blender) as opposed to using skim milk but many prefer a thicker milk version. I personally think using the milk tends to make it come out almost "slimey" but it's all a matter of preference.

So if you get a chance, I highly recommend picking up some Weight Watcher
® Smoothie mixes. Starting with 1 point® per serving, you can get a great big glass of delicious treat... add some of your own favorite "toppings" to make a decadent dessert!

*Note I am not affiliated nor endorsed by Weight Watchers® at all, in any way. I highly recommend their program and cannot say enough GOOD about it, but I also have decided that they were my "stepping stone" to making a change in my lifestyle. Any mention of Weight Watchers®, their program or their term of "points®" does not mean they have approved, seen, or endorsed anything on my blogs.

Also, if at any time Points® are mentioned it is always with the assumption that you will analyze the recipes, foods, ingredients and figure the points out specifically for your consumption of any product, as ingredients may vary by brand, size, etc.
