1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 T raw cocoa powder or carob powder (I've been using carob with yummy success)
1/2 cup pineapple
1/2 cup cherries
2-3 cups spinach
Approximately six months ago, I started drinking spinach, kale, romaine, you name it . . . My inspiration came after viewing an insightful documentary. (See previous post What I Should Eat). Ever since, experimenting with various blends has evolved into a little hobby. Some recipes have been merely palatable while others (specifically the one listed above) rock my morning. If you're hesitant to give green smoothies a try I am making you a promise: you can't taste the spinach at all!
I use a wide variety of protein powders to accommodate all of my yummy alternative protein recipes:
Tera's Whey (I wrote an entire review on this brand in my post Busy Army Wife)
NOW (I purchased mine on Amazon; it is not organic but uses no artificial sweeteners; the taste is very mild and blends nicely.)
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
