Happy Thursday, ya'll! As you read this, I am soaking up some time in my hometown of Sunny San Diego, and loving every second ;) In fact..I'm probably waiting in line at the courthouse to get my marriage license, so I can make marryin' Mr. Rose official!
What does that have to do with guiltless cheats? Nothing...I just thought you should know... :)
I love soda. I LOVE IT. More specifically, i've literally said on a few occasions that I LIVE FOR ROOTBEER. That's how passionate I am about that tasty goodness. I'll tell you what I don't love though, wasting all those calories and sugar on a beverage...LAME! If i'm going to consume that much sugar, I want to do it in the form of a cupcake, not a glass of soda.
We all know there are diet soda's out there that are supposed to give you all the flavor with none of the calories but the truth is...the flavor stinks! They always have the grossest chemically aftertaste to me, and i'm not a fan of chemically aftertaste flavored beverage...no siree.
When Dr. Pepper Snapple Group asked me to review their TEN sodas I thought...sure why not, but i'm not expecting this to be any good. WRONG. The A& W Rootbeer tastes like rootbeer, and the ginger ale like ginger ale. I felt like Kel from Keenen and Kel (holla for my 90's babies who get this reference!) as I shouted WHO LOVES ORANGE SODA while drinking my 10 calorie Sunkist. Oh and nothing is quite as refreshing as a 10 calorie 7-up, it tastes like a warm summer day in your mouth. The folks at DPSG really have it goin' on.
I've told ya'll before that i'm an advocate of clean-ish eating. I try hard to fit in lots of veggies and lean proteins to keep my body looking & feeling great...but whats livin' without a little sugar! I NEED my sweet treats, and the second I wrapped my lips around that 10 calorie rootbeer...I knew just the one.
This is SO simple...hop down to your local Walmart , and grab a carton of Yarnells frozen vanilla yogurt, as well as an A & W 10 calorie Rootbeer....do you see where this is headed? ;)
Yogurt is filled with probiotics that are so happy for your belly, and the best part is, you can generally find COMPLETELY fat free frozen yogurt at your local Walmart (even though I chose low-fat), making your treat- guilt practically non existent. Holla!
Simply scoop 2 big ol' spoonfuls of Frozen Vanilla Yogurt into a tall glass, and slowly pour your yummy A & W over the top. Grab a spoon and adorable paper straw, and savor every single bite! This is sure to not only satisfy your sweet tooth, but completely knock it out of the park!
Something is missing from this picture...
MUUCH better ;)
