After a fun and busy weekend with my husband I decided to get my week started with a nice long run….
I forgot to put the wash that was in the washer last night in the dryer and I have no clean workout clothes…danggit. :-\
So, instead…I made myself a green smoothie and got busy with the rest of the 24379302479 chores and things I need to get done before my parents visit us this coming weekend.
Now, I LOVE green smoothies!! 🙂
They are yummy and veggie/fruit packed and a great breakfast on the go!
You can customize them with whatever fruits and leafy greens float your boat for a protein and fiber packed punch!
I get a lot of my green smoothie inspiration from SimpleGreenSmoothies.com, but I kind of like to throw caution to the wind and make up my own flavor creations!
Here is what I made this morning:
2.5 cups of this into the blender,
1 cup of this into the blender and liquefy,
1 container of this for protein,
1 cup of this sweet mix,
blend until SMOOTH…:)
Pour into your favorite drink receptacle and sip till your heart’s content! ❤
This is just one version that I’ve made…
but get creative…
Got berries: strawberries, blueberries, black or raspberries? Throw them in!
Got Bananas? Toss them in!
Got Kiwi or Melon? Give it a shot!
Got Kale or other deep leafy greens? Try with OJ as your liquid!
Throw in a tablespoon of Peanut Butter or almond meal for added protein!
SOOOO Go for it!
I’d love to hear what you’ve got blending in your GREEN smoothies, so post your faves below. 🙂 🙂
P.s. A Couple of Quick Tips for the BEST Green Smoothies:
- Blend your leafy greens and your liquid FIRST! This will make sure it is nice and SMOOTH!
- Use FROZEN fruit (or freeze your fresh fruit) to make the smoothie COLD (no ICE necessary)!
- Rinse out your blender and cup right after blending and drinking with hot water…when the smoothie dries to the inside it becomes a pain-in-the-you-know-what to clean! 🙂
