Green Monster Smoothie

Starting now...I'm taking care of me. I put all my energy into my students this year and now it's my turn. I already have a massage and a hair cut scheduled for next week and I'm on day 3 of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. I have also been drinking green monster smoothies for breakfast, which is a huge thing for me since I don't usually eat breakfast. If you haven't tried a Green Monster smoothie you need to! They are really easy to make, healthy and they taste surprisingly delicious.
Here's what I've been putting in mine: (found from this website)
1 handful of spinach rinsed
4 or 5 strawberries cut
1 banana roughly chopped
1/2 cup blueberries
2 tsp. honey
1 T. Greek vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup crushed ice
splash of vanilla soy milk
1 peach, peeled and chopped
Blend all ingredients until smooth and drink up! Yum!

Way to go! I recently started working out more and revamped my diet...one week in and I feel a lot better. Take care and enjoy those smoothies!

This looks so good! I was doing these awhile back and ended up stopping because I ran out of fruit...and then I never started back. But I need to!!
