Sweet yet simple; this smoothie is packed with the healthy goodness your body will love you for.
My least favorite thing about the holidays has to be all the delicious, rich, and fattening food that just tastes sooooo good. Coming off of my Thanksgiving turkey high, I decided I needed to “detox” my body by eating clean.
I LOVE GREEN SMOOTHIES.
In fact, I am not sure how I ever survived without them. They are the perfect “fast food” for my busy life. As much as I love salads, I am often way too hungry to take the time to cut up all the ingredients and put the salad together. Stuffing the blender with everything and pressing the “smoothie” button on my blender just seems so much easier when my stomach is growling at me to hurry up.
My friend AJ and I hit the gym early this morning. We tried a X-fit fusion class for the first time… it was amazing because it hurt so good! I love being pushed physically, being reminded that my body is stronger than I realize. It also helps that AJ is the best motivation…. she reminds me to “work it girl”, “we are getting sexy”, or “you got this”!
I came home this morning starving because I woke up late and forgot to eat breakfast. This smoothie was exactly the fuel my body needed and was craving.
There is normally almost a week turn around time between when I make and photograph something before I post it…. not today! I got so excited about this smoothie, that I had to share right away.
This just became my new favorite green smoothie.
And, this final photo just because I love it and could not push myself to press the delete button.
