I have recently fallen in love with smoothies! Who knew they were so easy to make (which is a must for me) - and who knew they were so healthy, filling and DELICIOUS! :) Ever since my new experiment with smoothies two weeks ago, my beautiful red kitchen aid blender (that I just had to have when I graduated college 6 years ago) finally got some use (potentially for the first time ever)! I keep experimenting with different "made up" recipes and haven't found a bad one yet! One of my bff's who is super healthy told me to put greens (like spinach) into the smoothie - he said, "you won't even taste it" - and he is 100% right. See below for my favorite smoothie recipe... But what is yours?? If you have a fav smoothie, let me know what you put in it and I will make sure to try it asap! :) xxoo!
(in order of how I put it in the blender)
- 2 handfuls of ice
- 1 quick dash of water
- 1 large handful of spinach leaves
- 1 large handful of kale
- 1 small banana
- 1 handful of frozen blueberries
- 4 frozen strawberries
- 4 chunks of frozen mango
- 1 cup of carbmaster vanilla yogurt
- 2 scoops of Aria vanilla protein powder
- 2 tbsp of Flaxseed
- 1 dash of cinnamon
And... blend away! This usually makes an extra large glass - but it's only about 300 really healthy calories and it will fill you up for the night (or the morning)! Yummy!!!!
