Generally speaking, I like to eat things that taste good AND look good. But just because food can be aesthetically pleasing doesn’t mean that it tastes good, and vice versa. This smoothie was one of the “vice versa.” Short on time and soooo hungry after a quick but intense lunch work out, I needed something nutrient packed, portable and satisfying. I had the ingredients, but the result was…well just imagine when you were a kid and thought “what would happen if I mixed ALL the paint colors together?!” This is not one of those pretty smoothies whose bright, happy color reminds you of sitting by the pool. It turned out looking like something you would scrape from the bottom of a pond. But it was also DELICIOUS and had 4 servings of vegetables, 1 serving of fruit, and appx 20 g of clean protein.
LOTs of spinach- 4 handfuls or so
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup frozen bluberries
Small handful of almonds
½ scoop unsweetened chocolate rice protein powder
1 scoop greens powder
1 cup water (or less depending how thick you like your smoothies)
Directions: Combine all ingredients in blender. Blend on high until smooth.
