The weekend is sooo close, which means that Spring Break Slimdown is also starting soon! I have been working like a crazy person (who doesn’t know anything about technology) to get three printable workouts ready, and I am really excited to have them finally published. I am planning on doing individual sets of exercises for abs, arm, and legs. I might try and do a HIIT workout after week two as well.
Today I am sharing a recipe for my first green smoothie!! I have been really nervous to put spinach in my smoothies, because it seemed weird-like drinking a salad :/. Over break I tried to put frozen spinach in a smoothie, but it didn’t blend all the way so there were chunks of spinach in my drink. bleh. But today’s smoothie uses some fresh spinach I picked up from Trader Joe’s and it turned out amazing. You can’t even taste the spinach! What you can taste is mint chocolate deliciousness!!
Green Mint Chocolate Smoothie
3 handfuls spinach
5 drops of peppermint extract-this stuff is potent!
1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 frozen banana
1 scoop Sun Warrior protein powder
1 cup water
Blend up and enjoy
NOTES: I tried the measure the amount of spinach but it got complicated because I didn’t want to totally smush down the leaves, and my bag was only 6 oz. total anyway. I would say I used about 1/3rd of the bag
Have a great Thirsty Thursday
