Hi everyone! How is it almost Thanksgiving?! I mean really, where did 2016 go?? The holiday season is just around the corner, although, it is practically here. Now. Go.get.everything. Cook.everything. Bake.everything. At least that’s how I feel!
In an effort to slow down and be refreshed in those few moments we can get amidst the chaos, I have, dare I say, perfected, the beloved Get Glowing smoothie that I have far too often “splurged” on at my favorite local market, Ellwood Thompson’s. You too can enjoy this bright, but mellow smoothie right at home, without breaking the bank! Here’s how:
Get Glowing Smoothie
1 frozen Banana
1 cup frozen Spinach
Juice from 1/2 an Orange
1 Tbsp. of all-natural Justin’s Maple Almond Butter (or any all-natural, unsalted almond butter will do)
1 Tbsp. of protein powder (I currently have this, and it’s just “OK”)
1 cup of unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (my favorite brands are Silk and Califia Farms)
– Mix all of the above in your blender for about a minute, and voila! Adding a Tbsp. of chia seeds and/or old-fashioned rolled oats would round this out as a mini-meal too, if you wanted.
I’ve enjoyed this smoothie for breakfast, lunch, and heck, you can even have it for dinner! As my Insta showed last night, you CAN go home again and have virtually anything for dinner if you put your mind to it, ha.
I hope this smoothie is as refreshing to you as it is for me, and you feel like you can be your own hero during the upcoming holiday season.
