Recipe- Good Morning Green Smoothie

Hey Cats!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Mostly because if I don’t eat it, I become irrationally hungry at around 9 am. For the longest time, I thought that I could never have “just” a smoothie for breakfast. “I need to EAT something, not drink it through a straw!”, I exclaimed. Well, a few weeks ago my friend Ashley Snapchatted (Verbs of 2016) me her green smoothie and something came over me like a wave of healthiness: I had to try it. So I tweaked her recipe a bit and now it’s my breakfast every day! This is a great way to make sure you get at least some fruits & veggies in your diet each day, and it’s a healthy way to start your morning!

Here’s what you’ll need:

-1/2 cup soymilk

-1 handful of spinach leaves

-1 whole banana, sliced

-1/4 cup pineapple (I buy the pre-cut chunks from the produce section and just throw a few in!)

-1/2 tablespoon of chia seeds

-1/2 tablespoon of almond butter

Here’s what you do:

  1. Load everything into your blender in the order listed. It’s best to have the more dense ingredients closest to the blade so you’re not left with big chunks! I use a single-serving blender similar to this one, so I start with the soymilk and work my way down!
  2. Blend it up until it’s smooth and enjoy!

This takes me about 3 minutes every morning, and it’s so delicious! At first I was just blending the milk, spinach, and fruit, but I was noticing that I would get really tired throughout the day, so I added the almond butter for protein! You can change this up any way you choose: my friend Ashley uses mango instead of banana, or you could add berries or use a protein powder. The possibilities are endless! Let me know what your favorite green smoothie recipe is!

That’s all for meow!

Friday’s Five

Hey Cats!

WOOHOO it’s the weekend. I’m so excited to not be travelling anywhere and being able to sleep in today! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some great adventures lately (and more coming up!), but sometimes it’s just nice to stay home and clean up your room that looks as if it’s been hit by an atomic bomb. Here’s what I’m loving this week:

1.

Hosting my first ever giveaway from The Beautiful Fools! It’s something I’ve always wanted to do on the blog, so I’ve been really excited about it! Also, there’s still time to enter, so you should do that here. Immediately.

I received a package from eShakti this week that I’m looking forward to styling. Stay tuned!

This cat because it’s adorable and we all need a little more meow in our lives.

4.  Green smoothies. There’s not photo of this because I drank it all before I thought about it. But I got one this morning after I went to the gym and it was flawless.

5.

Nordstrom-Anniversary-Sale-

 

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts the 18th for those of us who aren’t card-holders (“commoners” as my friend Ashley called me). There’s not a Nordstrom in College Station, so obviously I’m going to Houston that weekend to see the same Ashley mentioned above and shop.

I’m linking up with Amy & Karli today for Oh Hey Friday!

 

That’s all for meow!
