Chocolate Cranberry Smoothie

I am always coming up with new smoothies, I was not sure how this one would taste but omg its sooo yummy. Perfect for breakfast and people who are on the go 🙂 and super healthy for you too. Why add cranberries? by adding Cranberries to a smoothie drink for fat loss. Cranberries are rich in essential vitamins and minerals that are needed in the body for normal operations, including liver function. Cranberry juice helps flush toxic fluids from the body, reducing water weight and waste products that are trapped in your tissues. Increased digestive processes also speed up the metabolism, which increases calories burned and fat-burning potential. And Bananas are rich in potassium, which provides energy to the body and a natural source of sugar to sweeten the smoothie. And Raspberries are Rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber, raspberries  are a delicious fruit with many health benefits.

Chocolate Cranberry Smoothie

1 cup Milk (I used 2 % but you could also use almond milk too if you wish)

1 banana

1/2 cup frozen cranberries

1/2 cup frozen raspberries

1 scoop of your favourite Chocolate protein  powder

DIRECTIONS:
In a Blender add milk, banana, mixed berries, and cranberries in a blender until smooth.

Air Fryer Dill Pickles

Air Fryer Dill Pickles

I love love love deep fried dill pickles but they are deep fried  WELL I just made these in my Air fryer, NO OIL at all, and well they sure didn’t last long at all

What you need
10 small dill pickles cut in half (i only had baby dill’s but they were awesome)
1 cup flour
1 cup Italian style breadcrumbs (see note)
1 egg with 1/4 cup milk beaten
salt and pepper to taste

In 3 separate bowls, 1 with flour with salt and pepper, 1 with beaten egg and milk, the other with breadcrumbs. Cut you pickles in half and pat dry with paper towel. Frist Dip them in flour, then with the egg mixture and then breadcrumbs, do this with each pickle till all are coated. You may have to do 2 separate batches as you don’t want them over crowded in the air fryer. Place pickles in the air fryer and set the temperature to 400 and add time for 7 minutes. Turn pickles halfway through the time.
Serve with sour cream or ranch dressing.
Enjoy
NOTE: I used Italian style breadcrumbs as they already have been seasoned. These turned out amazing, crispy on the outside and soo good you would never know they were not, not fried in oil
