Try It Out Tuesday!

What's a good girlfriend if she doesn't share some great finds with you?!
Here are two things I have been trying out lately that I wanted to share with all of you.  You may read this and say...."Ummm Fancy Nancy! Get with the program girl!" or you may say, "Hey I'd love to try that out!"  Either way here you go!
Lately I've been replacing my Almond Milk in my Green Smoothie with this Blue Diamond Almond Coconut Milk and yum-o!!  It's not an overwhelming taste of coconut.  It gives my smoothie that little something different.....just enough to make you go hmmmm!  It only added 20 calories to my Green Smoothie so it wasn't a huge difference and the taste was so worth it!!  I'm trying to find some ways to use it this summer for tastey summer smoothies!  
Have you tried Almond Coconut Milk before?  Any good summer smoothie ideas?
I bought this DVD when I first got pregnant as a way to supplement my weight training and really just give me some different ideas.  During my first trimester, I would say for me it was a little easy but it did give me some good pointers.  Now deep into my second trimester, I like it!  They have a short and long workout.  Overall, Summer Sanders is absolutely adorable and even more adorable as a pregnant lady.  The DVD is Summer and her sister-in-law (who is jacked may I add) and they go through workouts for each trimester for the whole body!  I use it when I'm looking for something different to do with my weights. 
Have you ever used a workout DVD (prenatal or not)?  What are some of your favs?
How about you?  Tried anything out that you are just loving lately?  Remember....sharing is caring!!!

  7. I like almond milk, but haven't see nthe coconut blend. I'll have to keep my eyes out for it! And yess I love DVDs. It used to be the only way I worked out, but I've since gotten into the gym more often than not. I have a few new DVDs though that I'm excited to use. I'll have save my opinion posts for after though. Will share!

  8. I <3 the almond breeze - that stuff is so good! :) good find.
