Another green smoothie for you. The other day I woke up craving this so much, that I walked all the way to the grocery store to get bananas and mangoes, even before my morning coffee. True story.
My point — this is a good one. 🙂
But first, the Food Stories Blog Award Nomination! Erin at Recimplicity kindly nominated me for this award. Thanks Erin! If you haven’t checked out her blog, you really should! She posts the best recipes – healthy, simple, fresh, and doable! She gave me the idea to add quinoa to my oatmeal and I’ve been doing that since. She also has some exercise ideas posted — ones that don’t require a million steps. Great blog!
According to the contest rules, here’s a random fact about me. I love reading Aristotle. And Plato, and Seneca…actually, all the Ancient Greek philosophers. That might label me as a nerd but that’s what I do in my free time…when I’m not cooking, running, at yoga class or outside, that is. 🙂
- 3-4 cups spinach, kale, or both
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 1/4 cup milk of choice
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
- 1 cup fresh or frozen mango chunks
Toss everything into a blender, spinach first.
Then blend. Yum.
