The weather is warming up quite beautifully here in Michigan. It feels like summer may arrive after all! PRAISE THE LORD!!! When it gets hot, my love for cold sweet treats goes WAY up. Thankfully there are so many items to choose from, for those of you who eat the Trim Healthy Mama way! I love a good cold shake or smoothie to keep me cool, and my sweet tooth satisfied all while staying on plan too. Here's a list of my favorite THM shakes, smoothies and cold drinks if you're looking for even more yummy ideas.
