I only have 1 week left until I go back to work (sniffle, sniffle). Since I have been off this summer, I have been making smoothies almost every morning. I've had so much fun experimenting with different kinds. I am hoping to continue my smoothie-making-morning-ritual when I go back to work too!
Also, Grant and I just got home from a short but incredibly sweet vacation to Virginia. We had a great time lounging by the pool, playing mini golf, visiting a couple local restaurants, & going on a few hikes at Shenandoah National Park. Below the recipe are a couple pictures from our trip :)
green protein smoothie recipe (1 serving)
1 frozen banana
1/4-1/2 cup milk (I used vanilla almond milk)
1-2 Tbsp nut butter (I used peanut butter)
6 oz greek yogurt (I like to use vanilla or plain)
2 handfuls spinach (kale or another green would probably work too)
Optional sweetener such as maple syrup, agave, stevia, etc., (I did not use one)
Blend all ingredients together in blender or food processor. If using a blender, I recommend putting the milk in first and the spinach in last.
