Energizing smoothie

20130801-130730.jpg

Today was one of those mornings where Big H was really trying my patience. We sailed right through the twos but age three is proving to be quite the challenge! Since a glass of wine didn’t seem like an acceptable lunch choice I decided to make myself a nutrient packed smoothie. I often rely on these for quick breakfasts or lunches on the run and they always leave me feeling full and satisfied. Eating healthy also seems to improve my mood…something I definitely needed today!!

Into the blender went:

One large handful of spinach
3-4 frozen strawberries
One small handful of frozen blueberries
Two frozen mango chunks
1/2 tsp ground flaxseed
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
One large spoonful of Greek yogurt
Splash of almond milk
1 tsp honey
(I realized as I was typing up this list that I forgot my banana. Normally I would add a half of a frozen one)

Just blend and enjoy! The ingredients are extremely flexible so you can sub in whatever fruit, etc that you enjoy. I definitely find that frozen works best. Don’t be scared of the spinach if you aren’t a fan. Even my spinach-loathing husband says that he can’t taste it. :)
