Now that’s what I call a smoothie!
Inspired by the Green Monster Movement, I threw together my own GM creation, which had a yummy Almond Joy flavor to it. (If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m sort of obsessed with Almond Joy! It’s my favorite flavor of ice cream. 😉 )
In the mix:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 tbsp spirulina powder
- 2 tbsp shredded coconut
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup of vanilla soy milk
- Small handful of almonds
- Large handful of fresh spinach
- 4-5 ice cubes
This baby was so thick and creamy! In fact, it was so thick, I ended up eating it with a spoon instead of a straw– and it was so delicious and incredibly filling. I’m actually pretty surprised that it satisfied me like it did. Usually, smoothies do nothing for my hunger level– I need that “chew factor” to feel satisfied, ya know? I guess this one was thick enough that it felt like I was eating something, not just drinking it.
There’s also an iced coffee in my future this morning. I’ll probably make one to take to NuVal with me.
