Happy Friday everyone!
While driving home from practice yesterday, I decided that I was not going to go to school today. Usually, my team has hard workouts on Mondays and Fridays but my coach decided to move today’s hard workout to yesterday (Thursday). With no hard workout planned for today and no tests at school, I decided to take the day off Plus, my sister doesn’t have school today so I want to be able to spend time with her.
When I got back home I was in a mood for dessert. Unfortunately, I gave up dessert for Lent. Bummer. So I made myself a Thin Mint Protein Smoothie instead.
After seeing this on Catherine’s blog, I decided to give it a try. To be honest, I did not have very high hopes for this smoothie. I threw everything into my blender and hoped for the best. And you know what? It was the best. I have NEVER had a better green smoothie in my life! Here is what I put into this amazingly delicious smoothie:
- 2 cups of spinach (you can’t taste it!)
- 1 cup soy milk*
- 1 scoop chocolate vitamix*
- 1 scoop whey protein powder*
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/8 tsp peppermint extract
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips*
- 6-8 ice cubes*
*My changes to the recipe
Ashley is usually anti-spinach smoothies, but she absolutely loved this one. Madison (in the pink sweater) also loved this recipe! In fact, she wrote down the recipe so that she could make it for breakfast at home! I hope that you all give this smoothie a try!
Later that night, we (Ash, Madi, and I) made some banana bread muffins. Madison has celiac disease, so we made gluten free muffins. They were sooo good!
Breakfast this morning was super simple- Oatmeal.
