Our Appetizer.: Green Monster

Green Monster

So as many of you know that I'm back to eating healthy and working out. Eating healthy is always on my radar but I do like to have some deliciously calorie filled foods/drinks at times. I finally got back in the gym today after 3 weeks off. I know it's so terrible, but I was just not motivated at all to go to the gym. Now I cannot wait for tomorrow morning to get my weight lifting back!

This morning I tried the most delicious breakfast smoothie I've ever had. Again, trying to get my greens and calcium (because I hate milk), I decided to try this smoothie.

I found this recipe on Skimmymom.com. No, I am not a mom but these recipes are awesome and can be used in any household. And yes, I did buy her cook book and I think you should too! I am making one of her recipes tonight for dinner so stay toned to that.

The Green Monster Smoothie is so delicious but I needed to cut the recipe in half because I don't have a big blender. The recipe I used is:
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (30 cal)
  • 1/2 frozen banana (52 cal)
  • 1 cup Spinach (7 cal)
  • 1 tablespoon Chia Seeds (138 cal)
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (100 cal)
Combine all ingredients in the blender and blend till smooth. Add in more milk (or water) if it's too thick for your taste. 

It is so delicious and kept me full till lunch time.
