Protein Packed Green Smoothie

I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer. My summer has been pretty amazing full of adventure & lots of fun along the way. Even though we still have a few weeks left until labor day & a few more very hot days ahead, I've decided to try my best to get back into my healthy mindset. With all of the trips & celebrations of the summer behind me I can now get into the regular routine of things. For me this includes hitting the gym regularly & adjusting my diet accordingly.

The Summer season is filled with temptation from back yard bbq's, to an Ice cream on a hot day or a frosty glass of your favorite french Rose' paired with dinner Al fresco. These things are all irresistible in my book & It's a little to easy to get derailed from your healthy routine. On August 1st in attempt to get back on track I decided to cut out a few things from my diet for the next 60 days. Added Sugars, Dairy, & Alcohol, to name a few. No more Rose' & Ice Cream for me. 

Today I want to share one of my go-to nutrient packed smoothies. The USDA recommends about five servings of fruits & veggies per day. This is a perfect way to get a few of those servings in. I love a delcious & nutritious smoothie in the mornings or post workout + they are great for on the go. This smoothie is full of powerful antioxidants leaving you feeling healthy & nourished. 

The Recipe :

  • 1 Banana 
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk 
  • 1 Handful of Spinach 
  • 1 Tbs PB2
  • 1 Scoop of Vanilla Protein Powder 
  • A few Ice Cubes
