The Lauren Conrad Smoothie

Egg Free Buttermilk Ranch

  

Buttermilk Ranch Dip:

1 weight watchers point per tbsp or 3 weight watchers points per 2 weight tbsp

Pair this with veggies or on top of your salad for a great lower calorie option that tastes amazing! All you need is one packet of buttermilk Ranch dry mix with 16 oz of sour cream (you can mix it up and do low-fat or fat-free if you wish). I personally prefer full fat sour cream for the taste. Mix it up and serve, place in fridge to store.

  • 4-5 grapes, halved
  • 3 strawberries, chopped
  • Skinny Girl Raspberry Vinegarette 
  • Optional: Almonds or Walnuts (I didn’t add nuts to this salad but I often do for extra protein)

Lay down spring mix, meat, cheese, fruits and drizzle with dressing. Enjoy! 😍
