Bali Banana Date Smoothie

I’m super excited to share this guest post from my friend Heather. I met Heather a few years ago in San Francisco, and we’ve been friends ever since. She’s an inspiring, positive person – the kind of person you want to be around all the time. She’s also the nutrition expert for The Skinnytaste Cookbook[1], please welcome her!

Hi there, I’m Heather! I’m a dietitian and the founder of www.heatherkjones.com –[2] a weight loss site that focuses on healing and hope instead of diets (ugh) and deprivation (no thank you!). I’m also the creator of Smaller Size Bigger Life[3], an online group coaching program for women who struggle with emotional eating, compulsive overeating, or body image issues.

I’m thrilled to guest post on Skinnytaste today (thank you, Gina!), and I’m so honored to be the nutrition expert in the upcoming Skinnytaste cookbook. Gina poured her generous heart into this beautiful book and I know you’re going to love it as much as I do!

So I’m a huge fan of green smoothies, in fact I drink a Skinny Green Monster at least a few times a week. But on a recent trip to Bali I discovered a banana smoothie that just blew me away.

The simple combo of banana, dates, yogurt, honey, ice, and
(surprise!) cinnamon, makes a refreshing and tasty concoction,
especially for sipping on steamy days. I drank one of these delicious
smoothies every morning before heading to the pool or biking thru the
rice paddies.

Here’s to a healthy and happy summer. Enjoy!

Grilled Thai Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Pizza

Move over hot dogs, this sweet and spicy shrimp grilled pizza made with my Bangin’ Good Shrimp [1]recipe is so good!

I’ve had my eye on Archer Farms thin crust pizza crust for a while and thought it would be perfect to make on the grill, so when Target’s A Bullseye View[2] asked me to create a guest post for their blog, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

Being part of the Target Inner Circle[3] I get to attend some really fun events. A few weeks ago Target set up a life sized dollhouse in the middle of Grand Central Station decorated with their Threshold home collection, how COOL is that??!

It was incredible to see this giant dollhouse in the middle of one of the busiest places in NYC!

My favorite part was their outdoor area, especially their ottomans and tables. When I went to Target to pick up all the ingredients for this pizza, I found this adorable bistro table on sale for $199 and picked up some Threshold lanterns, pillows and ottomans… LOVE!!

These ottomans make the backyard feel like an extended part of my home. But more about the pizza, for 8 servings it’s just under 300, or 8 weight watchers points plus each. If you want to try this yummy pizza recipe, head on over to A Bullseye View for the full recipe[4].
