We’re on day 3 of the 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge and I got a little crazy with my smoothie this morning.
I had the genius idea to make my green smoothie hybrid pre-yoga fuel + morning coffee and added a shot of espresso. Leave it to me to figure out how to caffeinate my smoothie! 😉
I also used chocolate almond milk instead of plain.
1.5 cups spinach
1 cup chocolate almond milk
1 shot of espresso
About 3/4 of a frozen banana
6 ice cubes, crushed
Still green even with the addition of espresso and chocolate! I liked the coffee flavor. It worked well with the chocolate and banana and was kind of mocha-esque. Yum!
My lunch today was also noteworthy.
All piled into a whole wheat tortilla. I opened it back up after cooking it and stuffed it with diced avocado, salsa, hot sauce and sour cream. A salad on the side with green leaf lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes and feta.
After lunch I could not keep my hand out of this bag of granola. Emily from Hungry & Co. sent me two flavors of her new Hungrynola to sample and it is so good. This is Peanut Butter Crunch and I am obsessed. I haven’t even eaten any on yogurt because I keep snacking on it right out of the bag. I love everything that Emily makes (her Hungry Bars are killer too!) so definitely check her out.
Alright, it’s day 3. How are you guys doing with the challenge? What was in today’s green concoction!?
