Hello friends and happy Wednesday! You know what that means – it’s WIAW! Since August’s theme is “Summer Staples” I will be sharing a couple smoothie recipes every WIAW for the rest of the month of August, since smoothies are my Summer staple. Last week I shared my recipe for a Chocolate Chunk Protein Smoothie. This week’s smoothie has a little veggie action going on. If you don’t know about WIAW, head over to Jenn’s blog to read a little more.
Berry Spinach Smoothie
Makes 1 large smoothie
- 3/4 cup almond milk/any milk
- 1/3 cup plain Chobani
- 3/4 cup frozen or fresh strawberries
- 1/4 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
- 1/2 scoop protein powder (I used vanilla)
- handful of baby spinach
- 3 ice cubes
Start with the milk and then add the berries and Chobani and ice. Mix all together until smooth. If you need more liquid, add more milk a little at a time. Then mix in the protein powder. Finally, add in the handful of spinach at the end. I promise, you won’t taste the spinach at all. This is a great way to sneak veggies into a kid’s breakfast or a fast way to get a serving of vegetables during the day.
Lunch was a pretty boring and typical meal. Another baby green salad + Chobani/fruit/granola.
After a good 4 mile run and a shower, I got started on dinner. Tonight’s dinner was what Bernie called a “Sarah dinner”. Sweet potatoes+veggies+protein=Sarah Dinner. The sweet potato wedges were roasted up with the beans in the oven, paired with grilled chicken marinated in a Caribbean Jerk sauce. Quick, easy, and delicious.
Readers: Have you ever tried putting veggies in smoothies before? Anyone out there make an all green smoothie – I’ve been searching for a good recipe!
