Goooood Wednesday morning, and merry Christmas Eve! Can you believe it’s December 24th already? When I was younger, the days seemed to get longer and longer as Christmas approached, but now I keep so busy that there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done!
Which is why, it’s December 24th and I still have a little bit of Christmas shopping to do. Oops.
Switching gears a little bit now…
Last night I was checking out my Instagram feed and stumbled upon this delicious looking smoothie from Vega!
When I woke up this morning, I knew exactly what was going to be on the menu: A Green Grinch Smoothie!
I changed up the ingredients a tiny bit by adding Greek yogurt for both protein and creaminess, and absolutely loved the result! This one’s going to be a regular, I can already tell!
And clearly I couldn’t wait to drink it, or stop drinking it in order to take a picture, so this is what’s left…
Creamy Green Smoothie
- 1 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
- 1.5-2 frozen bananas
- 1 large handful fresh spinach
- 1/2 avocado
- 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (I used 0%, but 2% would be great as well)
- 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
- Place all ingredients in the blender, and blend until smooth!
Alrighty I’m off to hang out with some friends, and then I have squash training followed by a bike session! At least I’ll be ready to fall into my pillow tonight, and won’t be snooping around looking for Santa 😉 . Did anyone else do that as a kid?!
Do you often make green smoothies?
Have you ever put avocado in a smoothie?
What are you doing for a workout today?
