Today is Tuesday and Tuesday means a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout for me. They are short, but for some reason I’ve always had a challenge getting them completed (a mental thing for me). Well I finished my HIIT workout after work today! Yeah ME!! I didn’t feel like eating a hot dinner as it is quite warm and I have errands to run later tonight.
I decided to make a protein shake that I love in my Vitamix – but I wanted it to be cold (and I’m not known for having ice at my house – small freezer). So I added a handful of frozen spinach! The shake isn’t the prettiest of colors – kind of an ugly green (and I love green). It is delicious with some added veggie! Guess I’ll call it my Mini Green Smoothie (since only one veggie in it)! Here is the recipe (if you have a Vitamix put in this order):
- 1 Cup of Almond Milk (unsweetened)
- 1 Scoop of PlantFusion Chocolate Protein Mix
- 1 Squeeze of FlaxOil
- 2 Tbsp Justin’s Almond Butter
- 1 tsp of Raw Cocoa
- Handful of frozen chopped spinach
Blend together until the smooth (and you don’t see any pieces of spinach in the shake). I started on the low variable and worked it up and of course hit the power button as well. Enjoy!!
