YUMMY MONDAY: LEMONADE SLUSHIE





Lemony Sip-It!
No need to battle the bees (and calories) at carnivals or amusement parks. We swapped sinfully sugary frozen lemonade for an equally sweet guilt-free recipe. Start blending, lemon-lovers! P.S. This also ROCKS when made with pink lemonade mix!






Ingredients:



2 tsp. Crystal Light Lemonade powdered drink mix (2 On The Go packets )



1 tsp. fat-free powdered non-dairy creamer (like Coffee-mate Original Fat Free)



1 1/2 cups crushed iced or 8 - 10 ice cubes






Directions: Dissolve creamer in 1/4 cup warm water, and mix well. Add 1 1/4 cups cold water and Crystal Light. Mix well. Place mixture in a blender with the ice. Blend at high speed until thoroughly blended. (If using ice cubes, start with half of the ice. Stop blending occasionally to add a cube or two, and then continue blending -- repeat until desired consistency is reached.) Pour into a tall glass, and then spoon and/or sip your way to lemon satisfaction! (Pssst... for an even slushier and less liquidy consistency, place in the freezer for about 20 minutes before enjoying!) MAKES 1 SERVING

Dear Chalene,
since beginning my Turbo Jam journey back in February I have noticed significant changes in myself, both physically & mentally.
I have your initial Turbo Jam package and your 5-DVD Fat Burning Elite package now. That band for around your lower legs REALLY gets the burn going!
I have commented twice since finding your blog, the last was on May 5th.
I feel a lot happier now. I find I am smiling for no reason. I also find... I AM ALWAYS HUNGRY! Haha. My metabolism is moving!
My obliques are developing, my calves, the rest of my core and biceps as well. It's so crazy to me! I can not believe what I feel when I poke at myself!
When I first saw your commercial I thought you guys were having so much fun. -- Too much fun. Exercise isn't fun.
I love you so much for creating this program and putting so much effort and love into it. You've changed lives.
And you and your program are changing my life right now.
My favourite DVD is Cardio Party 3! I love the whole thing!
I'm also adding in running now which is hard, and I am not running for a long amount of time at all -- but I want to compliment your program.
You hav changed my entire lifestyle. I thank-you so much because like your Turbo Guidebook says it is more stressful and much more unhappy to be overweight/inactive.
I just am so proud of my progress so far and I feel like without you I would still be at my size 14 and very unhappy.
Two days ago I bought a size 8!!! That's a single number. I pretty much cried in the dressing room, but I am so pumped for Turbo Jam all the time, it's an amazing program.
I wish I could articulate my feelings to you better. I mean it's this crazy happy feeling in my core, it's like a burning. I'm so happy I made the choice to get on the party train.
Maybe one day I will come from Canada to a Turbo Camp! That would be incredible!
I wish you all the best and lots of happiness, thank-you again.
-Samantha

hi chalene.

i've been in limbo of making a decision... about your turbo jam packages. i don't know which one to try first. ha.
what would you suggest... im looking to lose my mommy muffin top my 2 beautiful kids gave me, and my thighs, and to achieve my goal of being healthy and lean. i walk 5 km a day with the kids, my husband and i bike every 2-3 days. i've been doing yoga in a class... 3 weeks at a time, every 2-3 months. so i would love to try your program, but am having a hard time deciding on which one to start with. ha. i know.... what a dilemma...

if you could help me out, that would be fantastic.
i read your blog all the time, and i absolutely love all the recipes. especially the ones where i can also sit down and have a drink on a hot summers night without worrying about all the calories... :)
