I am not a “juicer”. And I have never been able to jump on the “green smoothie” bandwagon. Every one of those I have tried have NOT tasted good to me.
But this one. This one is good. And I don’t own a Vitamix or a Blendtec (is that what it’s called). I just use a regular old blender and it works fine.
This is what I drink after a good workout.
It’s an adapted recipe from the book Fit2Fat2Fit (which is a really interesting book by the way).
Protein Spinach Shake
2-3 cups of spinach (I just grab a few handfuls and shove them on the bottom of the blender)
3/4 C almond milk (or you could use regular milk)
1 scoop vanilla whey protein (I get a big bag of this at Costco)
1 Tbsp peanut butter (I use Skippy natural)
1-2 cups of ice (this makes it cold, obviously, and thicker)
Mix it all up!
Looks nasty. Tastes gooooood!!! (Like, good good, not “healthy” good. Trust me)
