Here’s a quick ‘n’ easy July 4th recipe along with 21 easy, breezy ways to use Barlean’s Ultra High Potency Key Lime Omega Swirl to help satisfy your summer sweet tooth without sacrificing your swimsuit!
I was introduced to Barlean’s Ultra High Potency Key Lime Omega Swirl at Expo West in March, and let me just begin by telling you how much one little bottle will rock your world!
Seriously, just one taste and I was blown away. Barlean’s served their Key Lime Swirl as a Fro-Yo Frozen Yogurt, which was a HUGE hit for all the folks wanting a sweet treat without the sugar rush and with a hefty dose of Omega-3s.
Let’s just say this new flavor of Omega Swirl will do more than change your life. Seriously, I’m already having my clients add it to their dairy-free yogurts for a healthy spin on ice cream or frozen yogurt.
Here are 21 delectable delightsto try along with a healthy, naturally sweet Key Lime recipe as well.
