Meal Makeover: Power Spinach Smoothie Recipe

Pin It PIN IT!

Hi friends! No, I didn’t forget about you! My life has been NUTS, literally NUTS this week. I overslept today and have 6 articles to write, and about 4 require cooking. I look pretty much like this right now.

However, I am taking some time out to blog because y’all are my motivation. I just, love each of you! You know that right? So I’m going to share a few more beautiful Arizona pictures and share a recipe for my new favorite smoothie ever!

Guys, please don’t judge me for these. It was a bachelorette party.

I just…can’t share the aftermath of that. I’m sure y’all know what happened.

Just a simple home for 2.

There are so many other pictures that are not safe for healthy blogging. Let’s move onto something not penis related….healthy smoothie! Don’t be alarmed at the nutrition stats, 9 points may seem like a lot for this, but trust me, it’ll keep you FULL for close to 4 hours. It’s full of healthy super foods (peanut butter, spinach, Greek yogurt). It’s a power-food to the full extent.

I had to create some recipes that are Earth Day inspired and when I saw this recipe for a healthy green smoothie on Iowa Girl Eats, I knew I had to make it.

Guys, it’s green and looks like swamp sludge, but seriously? It’s absolutely delicious! It tastes like peanut butter and banana with honey. Honestly. I’m not lying.

Trust me, it’s amazing. Plus it’s FULL of protein and fiber so it keeps you full forever. I drank it for breakfast yesterday and was full until 6pm. No joke.

Yum!

    Haha I die over the beer bong for the bachelorette party!  I also really need to find a spot in my tiny kitchen for a blender so I can make yummy smoothies like this one!

    What, no penis straw in the smoothie?? Not very, "Bachelorette Weekend" of you. But it does look like the perfect hangover cure.
