I have never been a smoothie fan until I started training for a half marathon. Now I am training for a full marathon and I am drinking, eating smoothies all the time. Sometimes, I have them pre-run but usually post run. So here is the one that freaks out all my friends. Undoubtedly, I get to all the ingredients but the one that starts with S and then they say “eww!”
Head to your local grocery and pick up some Oikos organic Greek yogurt. I pick up the Greek yogurt because it has more protein in it so that helps with recovery. I also get frozen organic fruit. Today, I used strawberries. I also pick up some organic spinach. Yup, there it is! The S word. Then, I put in a splash of skim milk which, providing the boys haven’t drank it all and not told me, I always have on hand.
8 ounces of Oikos Greek Yogurt (I use either Vanilla – what I had today – or plain)
5 or 6 frozen strawberries (I get them whole but sliced is fine)
A handful of spinach (you really can’t taste it when all is said and done)
2 -4 ounces of skim milk (depends on how thick you want your smoothie)
Blend until smooth.
Pour the blended smoothie into a glass and drink. I love this.
