Blackberries are so yummy and they contain an incredible amount of nutrients that it would be good to have them in your diet on a regular basis. One cup of blackberries contains half the daily recommended amount of Vitamin C. These beautiful dark blackberries are extra high in polyphenols, which are a type of antioxidant known for their cancer-fighting abilities.

I add glucomannan to this recipe to give it a more creamy texture. If you don’t have glucomannan you can make this drink without it, but it will have more of an icy texture.

This recipe calls for a scoop of collagen for added protein, it will help satisfy your appetite longer. Collagen also has many health benefits. When I use it I can tell a difference in my joints, they feel better – less noticeable and my hair and nails grow stronger and longer.

Trim Healthy Mamas this is an FP.

I started making frosty drinks when I first started following Trim Healthy Mama a few years ago. Never to leave a recipe alone, I started dabbling around with different flavor combinations and I was hooked. These drinks are so refreshing and so good for you.

I’ve been creating several different flavors and whichever one I’m drinking is my favorite. I’ve included a list at the bottom of the post with some of my other drinks.

A few years ago some dear friends gave us some of their extra red raspberry bushes. At the time I wasn’t thrilled about the idea because I had grown up enjoying my grandmother’s black raspberry pie that she made from the wild black raspberry bushes that were in our woods. I thought they were the only “good” raspberry. While I still think black raspberries are amazing, I have come to appreciate these red beauties more and more. They’re incredibly low in carbs like most all berries, and they’re so healthy for you.

This recipe makes one-quart serving, but if it’s too big you can share half of it with a loved one. If you decide to divide the recipe and share it, I suggest you double the amount of collagen so that there is a good serving of collagen in both drinks.

For you Trim Healthy Mamas, this Frosted Raspberry Lemonade is an FP and is best enjoyed within the first 30-45 minutes of making.

Fried Green Beans

Fried Green Beans | gluten-free, low-carb

Fried green beans is an easy and delicious side dish. I like to keep frozen green beans on hand to quickly round out a meal. When I was growing up, I think I was the only one in my family who didn’t like green beans, but frying them like this made me come to love them. They have such a great texture and flavor.

I use gluten-free Herbamare organic seasoning salt in my recipe, but feel free to use your favorite seasoned salt blend. Make sure to check ingredients if needing to be gluten-free.

Trim Healthy Mamas one serving of this recipe is an FP. The fat is 5 g and the net carbs are 6 g. Depending on what you serve it with it can be an FP, S, or and E.
