The only picture from the weekend: my Sunday morning smoothie.
Also known as the only thing I made in my kitchen for the past two days.
When we weren’t eating our way through town, I was hunkered down in coffee shops working on my final project. It’s due tomorrow. Praise the universe.
So back to the smoothie. During marathon training, I would drink them after long runs, but lately I’ve been a complete slacker in the running department. I’ve been busy. The weather has been chilly and windy. I’d rather hang out on the couch. Anyone go through these periods?
However, I have found smoothies super refreshing, easy, and healthy for breakfast. I’ve been on a smoothie kick all week. I almost didn’t need my morning coffee a few days because the smoothies were so good.
This one sounds horrible though.
Well, maybe they all do? Earlier this week I was drinking beet smoothies.
They are similar to the one I am about to explain except using roasted beets instead of spinach/kale.
Back to the green one at the top, I just tossed in (no measuring in the morning):
- almond milk
- handful of kale
- handful of baby spinach
- one banana
- spoonful of ground flax-seed
- spoonful of peanut butter
- spoonful of hot cocoa powder
- spoonful of whey protein powder
- a few ice cubes
Blend. Drink. Enjoy. Mmmmm! Angela has great pictures of her green monster smoothies.
My friends visiting were like, “Gag me! What did you put in it?!”
I swear it’s good though.
And they also remind me of the summer. I like that feeling in December.
