Let’s talk about smoothies. Way back at the beginning of law school I discovered health living blogs and started trying to incorporate green smoothies into my diet. When I had to take the metro to my internship I usually blended up a smoothie for my breakfast on my way to work….and *gasp* I secretly hated them. My smoothies always came out chunky and kind of gross. When I came back home to Ann Arbor for break, I started making smoothies again, and they turned out deliciously. The secret? A high-powered blender. Like my mom always says, “they don’t make things like they used to!” The blender my mom has sounds like a v8. And it blends with that much power, too.
So, if you’ve had bad luck with smoothies in the past I would try getting a stronger blender and see if that makes the difference! Also, don’t forget to freeze your bananas before adding.
Story time over.
After about a month and a half of yoga being my only exercise, I’m finally back on the cardio/strength train. After completing Fitnessista’s Awesome August workout I wanted a protein shake but didn’t have any protein powder on hand. Enter: Chobani! With 13grams of protein, this was the perfect post-workout boost.
-1 container of Pineapple Chobani
-1/2 frozen banana chunks
-3 large frozen strawberries
-1 cup spinach
-enough water to get everything moving in the blender
Blend and Enjoy!
